Spontin Off The Beaten Path
Needless to say, the castles of the Loire in France are the most spectacular in Europe but there are many others in Europe and of varying size, quality of restoration and of beauty.
For one of the smallest castles in Europe, this small privately owned Chateau de Crupet, outside Spontin is in a most tranquil and beautiful surrounding.
Attached to the chateau is a small privately run trout hatchery.
The owner of both premises was disappointed that we (in our campervan) were unable to purchase one of his tenderly raised trout for our dinner.
