Inspiration for Sleeping beauty. Mannequins depict the story in the stunning towers and gorgeous views from and to the gardens.

Beautiful chateau with the sleeping beauty exhibits to help keep children interested. Well worth a visit.

Very near us (just 9km) and one of the Loire's lesser-known château - which makes it all the more lovely. Said to have inspired the tale of Sleeping Beauty. Have lunch in Huismes on the way to it. For more info on our local hamlet, visit our website, here: www.lafuye.com/huismes

There is great rivalry between this chateau and that of Langeais - both claim to have been the source of inspiration for the castle in 'The Sleeping Beauty' but parking is easier at Ussé and you can also picnic by the river here. See: www.chateaudussy.fr

“A must - this is one of our nearest châteaux. Don't forget to drive to 'rive gauche' to see the spectacular view of it from the other side of the river.”

Castle
“Its not really the chateau that we recommend, although beautiful, it is the stunning gardens. Laid out like a glorified 'potager' with formal planting, mixed with garden veg and flowers. A large lake with swans and a garden with perennial flowers, more like an English garden. Plenty of walks with stunning views over the garden. ”

Garden
“This fairy tale chateau is a must see. Beautiful award winning gardens with wooded area, a maze and a potager. In the summer the roses are outstanding. Also throughout the summer and in the autumn there is usually something going on. Jousting, garden events, theatre...”
