Poitou Charente and Chateaux

When I visited this Chateau there were no information whatsoever about it.  You may find out the entrance and information board is on the other end which I did not drive past them.  To get to the entrance one must leave the main road and go down a small drive between trees to get there.  I only stopped on the other side of the river to make some photos to share with you at my blog.  This Chateau is a privately owned property.  I hope you will enjoy the Chateau as much as I have enjoyed making pictures of it.201 Read more
