On Monday we were working in the area: in the morning we had visited Chaumont in the pouring down rain, and in the afternoon we were at Cheverny and the weather was improving. By the time we reached Montrichard on our way back to Chenonceaux the weather had brightened considerably. As we were heading in the opposite direction to which we normally travel, I was able to cross the bridge, then park looking back at the town.
Montrichard from across the river.The chateau in Montrichard is another originally built by Foulkes Nerra (discussed here and here) and dismantled in 1589 by Henri IV. It looks properly imposing and medieval, which is always a good thing.
The Bridge across the CherWe have never stopped in the town itself and explored, which is a pity. The chateau looks well worth visiting, the streets narrow and old (and some are pedestrian only) and there are some large but interesting restaurants lining the quay, which for some reason always reminds me of a seaside resort. One day we really must make the effort and explore properly.
