Chateau du Plessis-Bourre, Angers

4.3
#4 of 9 in Historic Sites in Angers
Chateau du Plessis-Bourre was a single family home until 2009. This formibable, limestone structure housed the owners of the property for 31 years, the longest an owner’s family lived in the castle since 1473. The family has kept the rooms immaculately furnished, and on your guided tour you’ll notice that the furnishings from the 15th through the 18th centuries have been preserved with tenderness by the descendents. Most of the tales of the castle’s builders include legends of alchemy, dungeons, and sordid  history, but none fail to entertain.

The chateau’s location atop the water makes for an unmissable photo op, so click away. If you’re on the water long enough you may even see a pair of black swan floating towards their nest on the bank.

  • I highly recommend the tour to discover the Castle not quite like any other. Tapestries, Garden to poisonous plants, Alchemy laboratory... Plessis-drunk surprises well!

  • Beautiful site. The alchemical ceiling of the room of the guards is worth a visit. The Museum is sure to appreciate, and the Hall of justice and the Parliament. A special mention for the driveway of the dungeons. Guaranteed thrill. I recommend the tour, but it is possible to visit the site without a guide.
