Although built at the same time of the great castles in the Loire valley, Talcy remains untouched by the popular Italian style and its love of decoration. The wells, outhouses including press and dovecote and the garden all emphasize the rural nature of the estate. The castle has retained its interior decoration and furniture from the 18th century.

One of the smaller Loire Chateau's but very interesting. A guided tour is available but only in French (a little English). Very interesting with a nice garden. Allow about 2 hours. Also a good restaurant very close.

A small interesting chateau in a peaceful rural setting. The dovecote and wine press were particularly intriguing. Whist we enjoyed strolling in the gardens, they are rather in need of a little TLC.

What a pleasure to discover that small chateau a little way away from the larger chateaux where the "big" aristocracy resided. Ronsard spent a little time in Talcy which gives another type of appeal to the castle.

Although the Chateau de Talcy is a smaller one, it's undoubtedly one of the cutest. Its garden, though smaller, are an alleviating experience. Worth of a stopover to get touch of medieval life
