Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay, Montreuil-Bellay

4.4
#7 of 25 in Historic Sites in Maine et Loire
Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • We did the last tour of the day with an English guide and loved the experience. The chateau itself and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. We also did a wine tasting post tour.  more »

  • 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
  • The first vision of this beautiful fortress is bluffing. Take the time to walk there as well as in the very pretty town. In addition, the wine of the castle is really good.
