The tallest château in the Loire Valley, Chateau de Brissac has seven stories overlooking the sumptuous curves of the surrounding landscape. It’s also a posh locale for the Val de Loire festival.

  • A beautiful castle in a beautiful park. We visited the castle on the occasion of the Christmas market. The atmosphere was very nice. As Alsatian, the Christmas market left me a bit unsatisfied. Don't forget to visit the kitchens. The price of entry is too high.

  • A great guided tour (albeit entirely in French) of a great chateau. The kitchen and the subterranean aqueduct are worthy--as is the estate's wine tasting at the conclusion of the tour.  more »
  • One of the castles the more interesting in the region because always live by the family. A tour complete, kitchens has the amazing theatre through rooms richly decorated, not to mention the Park.
