Several days before my departure and return to the US, Dominique, who lives part time at the school where I was living, offered to take me to Château de Châlucet. The castle, built in the 12th century, is in ruins now and you can't go in it but its well worth the trip out to see it. We got to the castle in the morning on a thursday and had the ruins completely to ourselves. What we both really enjoyed about this castle is that it is completely surrounded by beautiful flowers and vegetation. Here are some pictures, enjoy.
