CHATEAU DE SARZAY, France: is a 14th-century castle with 38 towers & three drawbridges. It was built for a family of knights who ingratiated themselves with their betters in the Hundred Years War. In 1360, the lord of Sarzy fought the English outside the nearby town of La Châtre, before looting the town. The castle was purchased in 1982 by Richard Hurbain for 790,000 francs. Hurbain restored the moats, rebuilt halls in the medieval style, & restored outbuildings as holiday accommodations.
