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

(4.4/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Small castle, not the most impressive among the Loire castles. But the place is less tourisic, more quiet.
  • Medieval castle, in the middle of the castles of the Loire. Great framing. The staff is nice and the price of the very reasonable access.

  • Nice to discover at all levels. Both the architecture that finishes at various stages. A characteristic wood is used for model both for roofing for the walls. Half-timbered walls. Decoration very sketchy but for this House which has a historical past, first castle and then after the revolution, manufactures of textiles for a large Parisian House, c is simply pleasant to dive back into his history.
