Chinon, France

The French town of Chinon (pics) is located just southeast of the city of Tours.  The region is notable for the cabernet-franc wines produced here as well as the castle that dominates the town from its setting on a high bluff.

Château de Chinon

The castle is also know as Château de Chinon, portions of which date back to the 5th century.  Most of the town was built in the 15th century and a walk down the ancient street of Rue Voltaire is like a walk through history.

Also, along Rue Voltaire you will find the restaurant called Le Tennessee.  Oddly, they seemed to have a mostly Mexican menu but they do serve Jack Daniels.
