Crissay-sur-Manse

In the heart of Touraine, in the Manse Valley, this former lord’s domain belonging to L’île Bouchard and the archdiocese of Tours has kept the ruins of its 15C castle, its 16C church that houses the tomb of poet Joachim du Bellay’s wife and its white tufa houses where square turrets, mullioned windows and finely sculpted windows are key features.
