The castle at Châteauvieux was transformed into a convalescent home in the 1920s. In 1998, the facility became une maison de retraite médicalisée, what I think we would call an assisted living facility or nursing home.

Detail on the château de Châteauvieux. April 2004.

The town of Châteauvieux is about six kilometers from Saint-Aignan; a short drive. Ken went to a winery over there a few weeks ago and brought back red, white, and rosé wines. They were young, 2022 vintage, and pretty good.

  2. A lovely place for someone to spend their old age.
