Just a visit to the gardens left us amazed. My camera’s battery was exhausted, as were we in the incredible heat.

This is a must see if you are in the area, absolutely beautiful, plenty to see and lovely places to eat just down the street. Not really a place for kids unless you have older kids into history but well worth the trip.

This privately-owned château is filled with eight centuries of history and fantastic period furniture. We particularly enjoyed the kitchens filled with beautiful copper and brass pieces. The gardens are also beautifully maintained and interesting. The château is also known for its vineyards and wine production....More

Great example of a medieval castle turned into a renaissance chateau. Still in private hands so only a portion of the interior can be visited and only as part of a guided tour, but what there is is magnificent. Well worth a visit.

In the eleventh century Fulco Nerra constructed a keep at Montreuil Bellay and confided it to his vassal Giraud Berlay. Reduced in height by the Plantagenets the edifice was only slighted in the nineteenth century. The present citadel with its 650 meters of ramparts and...More

The church/ chapel just outside of the Chateau is free entry and well worth a visit. The chateau has tours in English on most days at 14.30. Our young tour guide was both very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We thoroughly enjoyed her detailed description of the...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Chateau this morning. The tours are usually in French though there is an English tour at 2.30. My tour was in French which I speak reasonably fluently. Our guide really knew her brief and was keen to share...More
