Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre, Fougeres-sur-Bievre

4.3
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Loir-et-Cher
Originally an 11th century structure, Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre was entirely rebuilt at the end of the 15th century with only the large courtyard being preserved. Many original military facilities remained, such as ditches, cannon holes, and the wall walk, but Renaissance builders added refinements, such as a gallery, mullioned windows, and steep-sloped roofs. Builders later installed a spinning mill in the chapel during the 19th century. You can attend a guided tour in English, or explore the castle unaccompanied to view its keep and the fortified postern tower. Château de Fougères-sur-Bièvre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Fougeres-sur-Bievre Edition.

    Very beautiful and very interesting. It changes the other castles. Very good reception, the visit is not commented, but the display of information is very well done, very interesting for those who is interested in wood and frames noted that the grounds are very nice A review schedules, closing between 12:30 and 14 hours in season! It's true that the castle belongs to the historical monuments, but it's a bit with our "money" the castle is located in the center of the village, very beautiful, with shops, and restoration, possibility also of peak picnic at the edge of the moat

    no need to pay entrance fee to go in there, save the money for the real castles.

    Small castle, not the most impressive among the Loire castles. But the place is less tourisic, more quiet.
