Built in the 15th century at Lémeré, near Chinon in France, the Château du Rivau's origins go back much further, however, as it was built on the foundations of a 13th-century fortified house. Part fortified castle, part pleasure residence, it is very much what you would expect from a fairytale castle. Joan of Arc (c. 1412 - 1431) stayed at the château on her way to relieve the siege of Orléans.
