    With no interior images in photos or the video, I must conclude that despite attempts at modernization and updating, this marvelous anachronism must of necessity leave much to be desired. 1453 was quite a year. The Turks were storming Constantinople, and the Hundred Years War France fought with England was just ending when this manor was constructed. The Black Death had peaked only a hundred years before and was still petering out here and there, and the country was devastated of both numbers and talent. France had little of the wealth it would generate 2 centuries later. That this place was built at all, given the political, military, economic, and demographic crises of the times, is a tribute to man’s irrepressible optimism and determination. For that reason alone, I’ll give it 5 stars.
