A living castle in the Loire area
Plenty of castles en palaces along the Loire river, that's not the problem. As the competition is heavy, many of them offer special things, like a perfume or an angling museum. But most of tbem have one thing in common: you're welcome to watch and admire, but certainly not to touch anything.
Not so in the château de la Ferté-Saint-Auban. This castle may be small compared to famous names like Chambord, Sully and Amboise. The owner, Jaques Guyot, kindly invites you to play billiards or to sit down in the antique chairs.
By the way: in the gardens of the castle a railway station from 1930 has been rebuild. A steam locomotive and two wagons are added. Of course you're welcome to sit in them. Just don't expect the train to move.
