Château d'Ussé

The Château d'Ussé overlooks the Indre River, built by Charles VII in the mid-15th century. The fairytale castle passed through the hands of many nobles, and was said to have inspired Charles Perrault to write the story of Sleeping Beauty. It subsequently inspired Walt Disney in the design of his iconic castles in the Disney logo and at several theme parks. Only parts of the house are open to the public, but you can also wander the gardens, stables, chapel and limestone caves.
