This is the château and part of the town of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher, 40 km south of Blois and 60 km east of Tours, in the Loire Valley. I've lived here for nearly 7 years now.
On the right there are ruins of fortifications dating from about the year 1000. Toward the right is the Renaissance château, from the 1500s. This is the back side of the château, seen from the north as you cross the bridge into town. Below the château are what are called "bourgeois" houses — in other words, the kind of big houses you find in cities and towns.
The grand side of the château faces south, into the sun. The Saint-Aignan château is privately owned and not open to the public.
