My map indicated a château not far out of town. I decided to try to find it one day and came upon this lovely place. The gate was open, so I walked in. Above you see the small chapel. This château is surrounded by apple orchards.
Here is the house. It looks like part of the lower level is occupied. I noticed the dog house in the corner. I didn't see anyone here. There are no signs, but I wonder if they get a tax break if they keep it open to the public? I don't know where to find this information, but will continue to try to find out.
A couple weeks later, I was out walking on a different road and found this beautiful garden. Again the gate was open, so I walked in and wandered around.
There was another small chapel.
And here is the house.
Some vines covering a wall.
This one had its own lake with two or three bridges.
And an island.
This looks like a canal, but it doesn't go anywhere.
Looking back across the bridge to the house again. The chapel is on the right.
The back of the house.
A gate at the back. There were some outbuildings that seemed to have recently been refurbished. I wondered if they were fixing this place up to open it as a tourist attraction, but I really have no idea. There was no one here when I was.
This is the road that leads back to the main road. The gate I first entered is ahead on the right.
A couple walks
