Lassay les Chateaux, Mayenne

Historic Site
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.

  • The castle of Lassay was built at the end of the 14th century. Today it is a rare example of the military architecture of this period. Accompanied by a guide, you will discover the Barbican with 3 levels of casemates. The Castle has a drawbridge in working condition. The seigneurial House can be visited and are found: a kitchen, a room of weapons, and several other furnished rooms. The romantic park adjacent to the Castle adds to the visit.

  • Small nice town and very imposing Castle. I could visit the Castle recently after repeatedly admiring it from the outside (small pond behind it). The castle is worth a visit and more so for the impressive views it offers of the inner courtyard. Regarding the tour, it was quite brief. Few pieces are visitable. Castle has been the subject of a recent campaign of restoration but work harm nothing to visit. I advise to visit for the pleasure of the eyes. Note that I've rated average for the visit of the Castle. The castle itself is anything but 'average'. (when you go up towards the Orne, shortly after being out in the village of Lassay-les-Châteaux, scan the landscape on your right, there is the beautiful ruins of the castle of wood-Thibault)
