Chateau de Montsoreau, Montsoreau

(260+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
Chateau de Montsoreau is built directly on the confluence of the Loire and Vienne rivers. This gives it spectacular views across the water to the region's riverbank landscapes. It isn’t just the view outside that is impressive, the interior of the chateau is pristine with vaulted ceilings and limestone construction that has survived the centuries gracefully. The chateau completed renovation in 1999, when an 18 room multimedia tour was installed. You’ll delight in the guided media experience through this UNESCO world hertiage site. Chateau de Montsoreau is an example of a happy marriage of the old and new.

  • The contemporary art exhibition is strange. You don't even want to take a look at it. The castle looks nice outside, but there's nothing inside. The only thing interesting is when you go on top of the castle, you have a nice view. It's not worth to pay so much for so few things.
  • It is 50% more expensive than the nearby larger chateau at Saumur, and all that it contains for the extra price is a sparse, pretentious 'art' collection. The best part of the chateau is the outside, and that is free!
  • It's way overpriced. Nothing of interest on the inside, which is all but empty. Nice views of the Loire from the terrace, but that's it.
  • Romantic. Sunset amazing
  • Not big but very pretty!!!
