Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web
Lassay les Chateaux touts that its castles, quiet stream, and flowers can inspire romance in the most stoic of visitors. The village boasts a population of 2,500 people and three châteaux. One of these is a remarkably well-preserved example of a medieval fortress, situated next to ethereal gardens. A stream runs through the village and is crossed by a wooden footbridge, making for scenery that Renoir could have committed to canvas. The village is also home to France’s national collection of roses. Quaint cafes serving wine, cheeses, and breads will make you feel the warmth of French country hospitality. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Mayenne holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lassay les Chateaux and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
