We enjoyed our visit to Chateau Sassy on 13th September 2012. We paid for a guided tour and were fortunate to have a guide to ourselves who showed us the rooms set aside for visitors. In particular we saw the room where Queen Elizabeth 2nd of GB stayed in 1967. We were able to see her thank you letter written to the family who own the chateau. Great to see a lock of King Louis V1 hair and the 29,000 or so collection of books that are centuries old. The ancient furniture is splendid too, as are the tapestries and paintings. Look out for the ornate wooden fire-place surround in the library room because it is very intricate and beautifully crafted.
Outside the patterned box hedge gardens are a delight and a stroll is recommended. Don't miss the little chapel wth the spiral stair-case and family monogrammed carved wooden pews plus the stunning figurine carved altar piece which is spectacular. The guide spoke in French and we were able to follow his descriptions and information because he spoke slowly and clearly for us - English visitors. 11 out of 10 for the whole visit!
