  • The site is very well maintained and well furnished, although a little dark inside (to protect the tapestries). The tour was very interesting and the guide very available. The mix of medieval architecture and renaissance gives a very nice character to the building. The ruins of the accessible Dungeon with a scaffold are fun to see. The garden is not big but nice with a bonus a great cabin in the woods that will delight the young and old!

  • We had a great time during the visit of this "small" Castle. The Park is nice and beautiful, the idea of the medieval scaffolding is excellent and allows to better realize construction processes. The interiors are sober and well put in value including at the level of lighting. Visit enjoyable.

  • A very nice site, a beautiful view of Langeais, the visit was informative and very nice. The Castle very well restored, and the care taken to put it back in its original frame is perfect.

  • Very impressive Castle. The ruins in the garden (and the tree house) and view over the Loire should not be missed out. You can also bring a bottle of wine and have a picnic in the garden.
  • Nice Chateau, especially worth a visit when combined with the Sunday market. They have two daily activities: lifting the bridge and swords fight. Keep your ticket to get discount to other castles in the area.
  • Nice château to make part of a day trip. Cute village too, with delicious icecream
  • Stunning!! Loved it, 2nd pick after Villandry, well worth a visit, explore the town after or stay a day or two.
  • Very nice castle among the Loire Valley castles. In the heart of a medieval city, with a nice park and garden behind the walls. A lot of furniture, curtains, tableware, beds and so on. Not too big, but quite nice to visit. A real back-in-time feeling.
