smaller but still very pretty and nice. Has the best furnishings in the rooms of any of the Loire chateaus we saw. In a VERY quaint little town—pretty to see.

The Chateau is built on a small island and surrounded by the water. Apart form nicely decorated furniture, they also have an exhibition of a pop cast and a big music box. The kids loved it.
