Getting to Usse Castle in the Loire?

Hello,

I going to be by Loche and Tours in April and was hoping to detour over to Usse Castle - does anyone know if you can get there be bus/train? Worth the hassel? Is the interior open to the public or just the outside grounds?

Thanks for any info,

Murphy

Here is some information:

You can visit inside - the site mentions that the displayed costumes are changed seasonally. No specific info on how to arrive other than by car..

I seem to recall that it was way into the country and suspect that you can go only by car. Perhaps you could organize a cab from the nearest train station? (But this is distinctly one of the minor chateaux - would go for it only after seing the majors.)

Thanks guys. After searching for hours - I've decided that if it was easy to get to by train it would also be easy to find that info, lol. So I think it will have to wait for a future trip.

Appreciate your imput,

Murph
