In the castle is a room

In the castle is a room dedicated to Joan of Arc who it is said to have visited the chateau to buy horses when on her campaign to rid France of the English invaders. In a little tower, you can see a kneeling figure dressed in a red cloak, listen carefully and you’ll hear the sound of someone praying earnestly, it’s quite a moving experience. Outside the stables are a reminder of the chateau’s majestic connections and you can watch a film, revealing the history of this illustrious castle. If you visit the gardens, don’t miss the lovely restaurant in a converted barn or on the pretty terrace. Here you’ll get a delicious lunch made from local produce and vegetables from the castle’s prize winning organic kitchen garden plus delicious local Chinon wines. There’s also cheese and wine tasting - check out the flower bar - it's truly perfect! This is a castle to fall in love with and one visit will never be enough… Information: There is a full programme of events included Roses Days, jousts and heritage days, see the website for details - www.chateaudurivau
