Château of Montrésor

Château of Montrésor à MONTRESOR © ADT Touraine - Jean-Christophe Coutand 6

The castle of Montrésor overlooks the village, classified among the most beautiful villages of France. Its ruins, its fortress and its enclosure bear witness to the property's medieval past. The Renaissance house overlooks the balconies of the Indrois. Count Branicki, a great figure in Polish immigration, settled in this castle in 1849 to flee Russia and the ukase of Tsar Nicholas I. With more than 1,000 years of art and history, this property, atypical and furnished with the taste of the Second Empire, is open to visitors and continues to exhibit works of art from part of the Cardinal's collection. Fesch - Napoleon I's uncle.
