A remarkable medieval fortress perched high above the River Vienne, the Château de Chinon hosted the historic meeting between Charles VII and Joan of Arc in 1429. The royal apartments were recently reconstituted following major restoration work. Below the castle lie the medieval alleyways of historic Chinon, while beyond, visitors will be enchanted by the spirit of Rabelais and the prospect of its renowned vineyards.
