286_montpouponWe have always approached the castle of Montpoupon from the main road – already an impressive view as you can see from the photos below – but today we cycled there for the first time and took a small road which meant we arrived upon the castle from the rear. Montpoupon was built over a long period of time, mostly from the 13th to 16th centuries.

Nous sommes toujours arrivés au château de Montpoupon par la route principale – déjà une vue impressionnante comme vous pouvez le voir ci-dessous – mais aujourd’hui nous y sommes allés en vélo pour la première fois en passant par une petite route qui nous a fait arriver par derrière. Le château de Montpoupon a été construit surtout entre le 13ème et 16ème siècles.

    That’s French builders for you, always dodgeing off to another job. I would be happy to take that gatehouse away on it’s own .

    @Lesley – Yes, the gatehouse is really lovely, isn’t it?
    @William – That it is!
