We had a guided tour with a badly speaking English guide who was had to understand. The tour only visited four rooms in this large Chateau. The tour ended with a boring visit to a biscuit museum. The only saving grace was a small taste of their wine and biscuits.

Interesting guided tour (in French) with an enthusiastic guide. the butterfly place is fantastic and the LU museum an essential part of Nantes history. The château looks fantastic and there are nice walks around it. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon spent with family.

Visited Feb 9,2013. We are very big history buffs (spenting 3+hrs at the Chateau des Ducs de Bretagnet in Nantes), and still planning a 2nd visit. The Ch. de Goulaine is quite expensive at 9 Euro per adult, for the very limited, rather uninformative 1 hour tour of the 4 essentially empty rooms open to the public. (Wall hangings and... More

Approximatly 30mn from Nantes, you will find this nice castle in a wonderful scenery. The castle in itself can be visisted for its nice rooms, the garden, the exhibition about LU (traditionnal biscuits from the area), and the wonderful butterflies rooms where you can see different species of living buttlerflies, are nice featured for a little trip outside Nantes if...

Be it liking old castles, their history, heraldry, exhibitions, exotic butterflies, home-produced wines or just being served by the Marquise in their shop, then this is for you. It is situated E.S.E of Nantes down the A830, take the N149 turn and then the D74 through to the East of Haute-Goulaine. On the day we went they had a choir... More
