    One thing I enjoyed on the way was the beautiful countryside around Salmaise. The town itself, sorry, village (population around 150) is sited above the valley on an outcrop around 300 metres above sea level.

    Search as I may, I have yet to find any information about the chateau at Salmaise other than the fact that it is in private hands and there has been some rebuilding from time to time. I got the latter information from a photograph that clearly shows that an end wall has been rebuilt in the centre at some stage.
    Its brooding presence on a dull grey day was hard to ignore; it sat like some evil overlord above the village, its secrets hidden yet ready to strike at any moment should anyone transgress. I was fascinated but left without being able to unearth any of its history.

    Market place at Salmaise

    The market place at Salmaise is unmissable - it's right beside the road and very in-your-face if you are driving through.
