    Chateau Gardens Yew Trees at Vic Sur Aisne

    The Chateau gardens here are very enchanting. Designed by the Abbot Pomponne, in the 18th century in the style of a formal French garden. There were some lovely suprises as you walked around some of the 5ha of woodland and gardens.

    River Aisne

    River Aisne, Vic Sur Aisne

    The River Aisne runs through the town. You have to cross over the Aisne to enter the town. This area is quite industial, with the river at one time being an important part of the transport system. The photo shows a wear and to the left was a lock.

    The River Aisne is roughly 266 km long, the source being in the Argonne Forest flowing in to the River Oise. During the first world war three major battles were fought on the banks of the River Aisne, in 1914, 1916 and 1917. Over 320,000 French and British troops were lost during these 3 battles. Although I dont have the figures I am sure a similar amount of Germans too. Such a tragic waste of life.

    Chateau Vic-sur-Aisne

    Chateau Vic-sur-Aisn

    The small but attractive chateau of Vic Sur Aisne is in the centre of the town. Once inside the grounds you walk past the keep and moat to be faced with this very attrative building which over looks the wonderful formal chateau gardens from the large terrace.

    We could not visit the inside of actual Chateau only the Keep. It is my understanding this is how it always is. The chateau is used for functions and weddings.

    Open Sundays in the summer from 15:00 to 18:00, entrance was very cheap less than two euros from memory.

    Vic Sur Aisne Town

    The actual town of Vic Sur Aisne is very quaint, There are typical French shops, 2 boulangerie, tabac, bank with cash machine etc. The whole town is built in light stone, with a very uniform feel to it.

    One Sunday morning they had a huge car boot sale and the main street was shut off, quite a community feel here.

    Vic-sur-Aisne Keep & Street

    The Keep of the Chateau at Vic Sur Aisne, was originally made from wood in the 8th century. The Keep was then rebuilt in stone, which is the structure you see today in the 1200s.

    You can go up the spiral staircase to the first floor, where there is a large room with a fire place & suit of armour. The views from here over the town are pleasent.
