A old mansion ( built in the 15th century) by the river in Loire Valley.
I visited this place few years ago (photos below), it used to be a Convent, now a private home.
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.
Two more photos of Chenonceau castle that I visited last time.
