This chateau is different from many of the other chateaux that we visited during our recent stay in the Loire Valley. It is much older and is still in very good condition. We were two of possibly eight people visiting while we were there in mid-May. We stopped here after visiting three other chateau that day and were pleased with it. It is not opulent, nor is it fully furnished, but there is an exhibit of medieval building techniques and tools which is interesting. The ladies in the gift shop were very friendly and helpful as well. It is a little off of the beaten path, but it was right on the road back to our hotel in Amboise - perhaps 20 minutes away from there.
