Château d'Oiron

Recommended
Sited among cedar trees, this magnificent Renaissance castle has since 1933 been known for its successful blending of ancient and contemporary art. Its original owners (the Gouffier family) had a collection of Muses including Diana the Huntress and her nymphs, and a majestic painted gallery, its walls depicting the Trojan War and the Aeneid. In the late 1980s, artists were invited to add to the pre-existing works, in the manner of 16C cabinets of curiosity.
