Château de la Verrerie Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

In 1422, Charles VII granted the Verriere lands to John Stuart for services rendered. It returned to royal ownership in 1672 before Louis XIV gave it to the Duchess of Portsmouth, a favourite of Charles II. Sited in a magical verdant location on the shores of a lake, it inspired Alain-Fournier to write his novel Le Grand Meaulnes. Tours led by guides in period dress, and the chance to spend the night in one of 12 bedrooms.
