Five photos of the château de Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher

Here are five photos of the Château de Saint-Aignan. As the Cadogan Loire guidebook says: "The interiors [of the building] are not open to the public, but you can appreciate its grand exterior, and from the splendid terrace you can enjoy good views of this delightful town."

These photos show the Renaissance château built on the site in the 16th century. Also on the property are the ruins of the earlier 10th century château-fort. In all, 32 generations of one family lived here from the 10th to the 19th century. As usual, you can see the images at full size by clicking on them with your mouse or tapping on them on your tablet.


  1. There is much more unity on this side than on the one facing the river. Those two sides don't seem to belong to the same building.

  2. I wouldn't like the electricity bills !

    1. I think the residents of the château live in one small part of the building. The rest is probably heated and lighted only minimally.

  3. 32 generations of one family. It's hard to get your mind around a family tree that big.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
