Château d'Entrecasteaux

Chateau in Entrecasteaux

While there's been a fortress on this site since the 11th centry, the present handsome pile was assembled piecemeal between the 15th and 18th centuries. Its oubliettes (bottle-necked dungeons), vaulted ceilings, ornamental gardens and period furniture represent a melange of styles, but are no less impressive for it.
