Chateau de Brissac

This is the tallest chateau in France. It was originally going to be much taller but whoever was building ran out of money I think and had to cap it at 7 stories. You can tour the chateau and visit the cellar beneath for wine tastings and the gift shop. Interesting factiod is that the family who owns it still lives in it and it has been in their family for several generations.

Very beautiful grounds here as well. This is a photo of our group playing hackey-sack.
I found out on the tour you can actually rent rooms here for honeymoons and other such things. And there are secret passages as well. And a chapel and huge halls, ornate staircases, etc. etc. well worth a trip to see it.

    Tim, thanks for the beautiful pics and info. on Brissac. I made it only to Chenonceaux, Blois, and Chambord. And I thought that Chambord was the tallest chateau! ~Cheryl~
