Chateau des Enigmas
A great day out for the family and
educational too. There is a quiz
trail /treasure hunt around the
Chateau grounds. It boasts to be
fun for children and adults, my
children certainly enjoyed it when
they visited with school.
Its the Loire thats best know for its Chateaux, however we have a good number of lovely small chateaux
all within an easy drive of our Family friendly gites.
Chateau du Roche Courbon
Just 30 mins away and
known as the 'sleeping
beauty' castle it has a long
and eventful history. Guided
visits are offered. There is
also an excellent walk to
some stone age caves
Chateau Dampierre
Just 20mins away from our holiday
cottages and a lovely afternoon
out. The chateau suffered a terrible
fire but has since been restored
and there is lots of  interesting
information about the restoration
and techniques used.
