Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Loir-et-Cher / Fougeres-sur-Bievre / Chateau de Fougeres-sur-Bievre
Originally an 11th century structure, Chateau de Fougeres-sur-Bievre was entirely rebuilt at the end of the 15th century with only the large courtyard being preserved. Many original military facilities remained, such as ditches, cannon holes, and the wall walk, but Renaissance builders added refinements, such as a gallery, mullioned windows, and steep-sloped roofs. Builders later installed a spinning mill in the chapel during the 19th century. You can attend a guided tour in English, or explore the castle unaccompanied to view its keep and the fortified postern tower.

Chateau de Fougeres-sur-Bievre Reviews

Garden and exterior are picturesque. Interior to too modernized with contemporary art exhibits that detract from the overall character of the site more »
There are so many castles in the Loire valley, but this one was one of my favorites.
I have only one photo of this chateau. The problem is that we had a dog. Despite the fact that we had traveled there and there was only 1 other guest in the entire chateau, they would not allow us entry because of the dog, even when we said we would keep him in his bag - this is important because they could have let us tour the gardens with the dog in his bag, but NOPE, you have a dog, you are not allowed entry and they will not offer to allow you tie your dog up outside and watch him/her while you visit. Won't return.
