Le Salon Biencourt, Photos #1 to #3
The windows, decorated with 16th and 17th century stained glass, open onto the river and the park, created by the Marquis de Biencourt. The large paintings and royal portraits date from the Valois dynasty, when much of the castle’s construction was completed.

La Salle de Billard, Photos #4 & #5
The Billiard Room is decorated with mid-16th century Flemish tapestries; within their large and luxuriant borders small Biblical scenes are depicted.
