Chateau of Plessis-Mace, Angers

(4.4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
A dream castle with a fairytale balcony to survey your parishes below, at Chateau of Plessis-Mace you become royalty. You must have a guide to visit the interior of the chateau, but this is an asset because your guide will lead you through daily life in the chateau and the history of its many occupants. A traditional medieval garden, and chapel housing one of the oldest oak platforms, complete the picture of Chateau of Plessis-Mace's notable attractions. However, you shouldn’t overlook the grandeur of the chateau’s exterior, so well-preserved that you can almost see the lords of Plessis walking out the the large, wooden doors for a walk through their beloved gardens.

The castle management is entrusted to the EPCC Anjou Theatre, who performs an entire season of modern and classic theatricals on its grounds. Make Chateau of Plessis-Mace part of your personalized Angers itinerary using our Angers trip itinerary builder.

  • Setting chosen by the Festival of theater of Anjou, the Castle does not deny his reputation. The architectural mix, the rooms and their content, the work conducted on the central gardens, the animation team that manages the site, while met to make this place a must visit in the Anjou region.

  • Thanks to the whole team of the castle for this visit in costume. My two children loved the characters you've played, you are very talented and funny. The castle is very well maintained. Although the visit is a little long, it's a great time with your family!

  • Castle has visit very nice, but too bad there's not more room open to the public. I went there for the weekend end of heritage, old vehicles were visible, tools and tents of eras, with men in uniform, the re-enactment was nice.
