Chinon Chateau

View from the ramparts of the chateau. My expectations upon visiting this chateau or fortress were not high. As often when you expect nothing you are rewarded with everything. The fortress was badly beaten down from past conflicts, but where ever possible video vignettes led you through the politics and conflicts of old. There was also a fairy garden and treehouse for kids to romp around. We enjoyed an apple tart in the little cafe on the grounds.

These are stone trebuchet balls.
