Great views over Saumur, nice to visit for an hour or two but was undergoing some extensive restorations when I visited.

The chateau has recently reopened after restoration and now has some interesting diplay of furniture and porcelain on the first floor. The staff in the chateau speak great english and are happy to talk about the chateau.
Still not as well furnished as most loire chatea but cheap entry and great views.

A fantastic vantage point over the Loire and an interesting tour with some unusual artifacts and artwork.

Find you way to Saumur pronounced So Mure, and you are at the gateway to the Loire valley with all that it has to offer. Famous for its wines and cuisine, it never fails to disappoint. Even in the rain this ancient commune delivers full strength.

This Chateau dominates the town of Saumur. It is a bit of a trek up the hill to see it and there are excellent views from the courtyard. However, there is not much to see inside and very little information available.
