Château de Montreuil-Bellay

Recommended
An ancient fortress on the banks of the River Thouet; behind its barbican (a rare survival), moat and fortified gateway is a 15C castle. Visit the medieval kitchen with perfectly preserved chimney, the canon's lodgings with stove, and vaulted cellar (testament to the château's wine-making heritage). Note the dining room with painted beams and oratory decorated with frescoes, plus the Duchess of Longueville's room and the little music room, with a desk by Boulle.
