Château d’Ussé Châteaux de la Loire – UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Situated on the edge of the forest of Chinon, overlooking the Indre, the château of Ussé inspired Charles Perrault’s tale of Sleeping Beauty. It was built on the foundations of an 11C fortress in the 15 and 16C. The interior contains Flemish tapestries and oriental weapons. Note the fine ceiling in the Guardroom. The King’s Chamber and the chapel situated in the park are worth a visit.   – Michelin Travel : TheGreenGuide
