Seven centuries old, this castle is indissociable from the Duke of Sully, Maximilien de Béthune, a great minister of finance and very close to the King of France, Henri IV.
Situated 30 minutes from L'Echappée Belle, on the banks of the Loire, this castle is considered one of the most remarkable in the Loire Valley. Many people only contemplate it from the outside,
but it is well worth a visit.
The Château de Sully sur Loire is a medieval jewel set on the water (the Loire and the Sange, a local river).
The presence of a castle in this strategic location is mentioned as early as the 12th century, but it was in 1395 that Raymond du Temple drew up the plans for the present castle.
