The term 'fairytale castle' is often used but rarely can it be literally applied. The Chateau of Ussé was the inspiration for Charles Perrault's story of the Sleeping Beauty, so it can truly be called a 'fairytale castle'. It's also a dream castle for anyone interested in the history of architecture because it transitions from the medieval to the renaissance, and then into the classical. We can start at one end of the chateau and finish at the other in chronological order. As an added bonus we will get up into the 'visible storage' (otherwise known as the attic). It's amazing what people will keep if they have the space!
