With the sweet nickname of "Château du Chat Botté" (Puss in Boots), it already makes us want to explore it! Do not you?
Simply because in the 17th century, when Jules Gouffier, Count of Caravaz, became the owner of the place, he inspired Charles Perrault to create the Marquis de Carabas, Master of Puss in Boots in his famous tale.
