A really picturesque château in the little village of Montreuil-Bellay. We were able to look around many rooms inside of the Château, and the views of the surrounding region from here are spectacular. The admission fee was reasonable, and included a free wine tasting session after which was really nice. You then have the opportunity, if you wish, to purchase... 更多
You can only visit the chateau by guided tour, which is only in french. There are not that many rooms, but they are extensively decorated. I read that they have tours in English, but apparently only on special occasions so we understood nothing the guide said. Most of the garden you can only look at from a distance, but since... 更多
We missed the English tour, and had to take a French one - fine for me, but not for the rest of the party.

The chateau is privately owned but open for public tours, and offers an unusual chance to see some aspects of French history up-close (royal weddings, palace intrigue, conflict between Catholics and Protestants, and how a castle endured a long siege).

We did the english tour which takes place every day at 2.30. found it to be interesting and informative but the main highlight was exploring the gardens and ramparts afterwards. Also get free wine tasting as part of the visit!
This chateaux looks like everyone's dream. It is situated on a high bluff above the river and the view from the bridge is magnificent.Well worth a visit although the tour is not long. Views from the gardens are spectacular. There is also wine tasting to be had.
Beautiful chateau, steeped in history, set in a picturesque location. The chateau itself is an example of superb architecture & the gardens, although not huge are v peaceful. With the river Thouet running below & a lovely town square outside this chateau is well worth a visit if your after a hidden gem.
The atmosphere of this Castle is lovely. It is the focal point of the charming town of Montreuil-Bellay with gardens and water views that are intimate and beautiful.
Set in a lovely town in the Loire Valley. Historic and well maintained. There is no English language tour, but an abbreviated written version is supplied. The tour guide we had was amiable to answering our questions once she finished the French language version, which was good because there were details not included in the written script. We did not... 更多
