Trip Planner: Europe / France / Pays de la Loire / Maine et Loire / Montreuil-Bellay / Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay
The town of Montreuil-Bellay was ransacked and burned during the French Wars of Religion, but the sturdy fortress, , was barely touched. Like most French chateaux, ownership of the castle changed several times, but lucky for you it survived all the upheaval to make a premium wine. With 650 m (2,132 ft) of ramparts and 16 towers, it is one the most awe-inspiring chateaux in the region. The grounds rest beside a lake and include picture perfect medieval gardens, a fully furnished ground floor, and vaulted cellars. Understated elegance and attention to detail is evident in the furnishings. After you delight in your royal surroundings, you can top it off with a tasting of the local vines. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay by using our Montreuil-Bellay vacation route planner.

In addition, a roof was redone, so we can see that the price of the visits or the sale of souvenirs are useful. The castle is also furnished and inhabited what is very interesting! The visit of the basement worth to see! Finally, nice view of the River below.

Op een wat sombere dag hebben we dit kasteel bezocht. Een goede Engelse gids hadden we. Een leuk uitstapje. Na afloop een wijn proeverij maar de wijnen vonden wij persoonlijk niet lekker. more »On a dreary day we visited this castle. We had a good English Guide. A nice trip. After a wine tasting but the wines we found personally.

Beautiful chateau. I highly reccomend a walk among the river in the park near the castle.

Really really pretty grounds. Still used as a home at times. One of the better Châteaus
Riff RaffAugust 24, 2017Lovely Castle. Guide friendly but the avalanche on a garish tone & Robotics made is picked up after 5 minutes. Too bad... In addition, he is a bit steep to prohibit in the (so-called) parts "private photos" while the postcards of these same parts are on sale in the shop!...
Les Créa's de Moi x3July 23, 2017Super Castle! I visited it with my grandparents and my cousins (11 years). It was really beautiful! Only thing is that the guide was talking too fast and we didn't understand everything and it was more boring... But staff very friendly!
JEREMY CAILLARDAugust 18, 2017Beautiful castle. The tour is very rewarding. Opportunity to taste the wines of the Castle. To do.
