Here's a slideshow of photos of and from the Château de Saint-Chamant when we spent a few days in the village a decade ago. They show it is a more flattering light than did the photo I posted yesterday. By the way, my reading has confirmed that the tall, rectangular tower on the front of the château houses the château's main staircase.
The banner photo is an aerial view I grabbed off an Auvergne tourist site (link). My thanks for this non-commercial use of the image.
