Château de Brissac Châteaux de la Loire – UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Set in a fine park planted with cedar trees, this family château overlooks the Aubance Valley. 200 windows punctuate the façades, which are an unusual blend of two styles, one medieval and the other dating from the time of Louis XIII. Inside, the French-style ceilings are still adorned with their original 17C paintings. The tapestries and furniture are remarkable. A fine Louis XIII staircase leads to the first floor, and on the second floor is a delightful 17C-style theatre built in 1883.   – Michelin Travel : TheGreenGuide
