Discover the secret attics in this Renaissance chateau, which for hundreds of years was lived in by French counts and marquis! I’m delighted to welcome you into my home, and to take you on a personal tour. There’s so much to see that I’ve had to split the tour into several parts. This week I’ll show you the hidden attics, which aren’t usually seen. Discover the old servants rooms that haven’t been touched in over a hundred years, see the dust-covered antique furniture left by previous generations, and travel back in time as we step into the chateau’s original defensive ring, and see the openings from which boiling oil could have been poured onto attackers. Follow me to the attics!!!
