The Château d'Ussé - Tourism in the Indre-et-Loire

The Château d'Ussé, with its fortified towers, turrets and little steeples, looks like a fairy tale castle. This wonderful castle, the stuff of dreams for children and grown-ups alike, is said to have inspired Charles Perrault for his famous children's story Sleeping Beauty.

Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, and situated in Rigny-Ussé, the Château d'Ussé is still lived in today and is open to the public from February until November. Of interest when visiting are the furniture, Flemish tapestries and family souvenirs, as well as the remarkable Renaissance chapel and terraced gardens designed by Le Nôtre. Up in the towers, the rooms along the rampart walk (chemin de ronde) feature waxwork figures from the Sleeping Beauty story that children will love.
