Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay, Montreuil-Bellay

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Magnificent collegiate pity that the Castle has been closed, but feel free to down the River, admire the Priory and Castle seen from downstairs! Then walk you in the village looking for pretty houses and gardens

  • The castle is particularly beautiful and interesting from the historical point of view. The visits are not "botched" even during the holiday period. The host is very nice. The view is superb. A place to strongly advise.

  • Really really pretty grounds. Still used as a home at times. One of the better Châteaus
  • Small but beautiful and well maintained Castle. You get a personal tour in group in French or English. This tour gives the visit called a bonus compared with the other major castles nearby.
