  • This renaissance chateau is the unique achievement in France of architecture to 4 wings forming a square around a beautiful courtyard. The Park around 50 ha and is very beautiful... In the Castle, the painted decorations are the most important mural painting in France in the second half of the 16th century. The styles mix French and Italian architecture. The ceilings are beautiful and different in every room. All carved wooden furniture. Chandeliers very large and very heavy. Beautiful fireplaces in the rooms. In different rooms each time we find a small place dug in the wall and where there are toilets at the time or a place to get away
