Chateau de la Briche was purchased by a family trust to ensure that it would remain in the family for generations to come.
The family is devoted to multi-culturalism and loves what France has to offer: rich history, breathtaking scenery, world-class cuisine, classic architecture, beautiful language and literature. The Loire Valley, in particular, embodies the best of France. The kings of France built their summer palaces in this beautiful valley.
