Château de Brissac (2)

Castle interior visiting normally is a guided tour, because there was a flower arrangement exhibition, we were able to make the visit on our own.

Château de Brissac (1)

So many castles here, public or private, small or big, if you want to visit, you are spoiled for choice.

This is a private big one.

Brissac is a family owned chateau, owned by the same family since 26 May 1502, date of purchase of the domain of Brissac by René de Cossé, a gentleman from Angers.  His descendants, the Marquis and the Marquise still live in the Chateau with their four children. 

Let’s look at its outside first.
