When we went to visit the Castle of Cheverny, we drove through Fougères sur Bièvre, and seeing the castle made a brief stop to check it out. We decided not to go inside because we were just in time and it was not one of the castles we had marked as essential, so I'll go another time to see it. Its exterior was typical of a medieval castle, complete with turrets. In passing, we took advantage to have a walk round the small town it's located in.
Fougères-sur-Bièvre is a small town which is located in the Loire Valley, near Montrichard, Amboise and Cheverny, among other places of interest . Like almost all the villages in the area, it has its own Castle, that you will see upon entering the town. Along from the Castle, you can also see the Church of St. Eloi and the Town Hall. As for accommodation, right in front of the Castle can see the hotel 'Auberge du Château'.
Built in the 12th century, St. Eloi, is a small church in Fougères-sur-Bièvre, right next to the Castle and Town Hall. Its architecture is a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles. Admission is free.
The Fougères-sur-Bièvre Town Hall is located right next to the Church of St. Eloi, a few steps from the Castle, and in front you will find the street where Hotel Auberge du Château is. It is a small building where you can see the flags of the city and the country. Opposite is the monument to people from Fougères-sur-Bièvre who were killed in the line of duty between 1914 and 1918.
