gorgeous architecture, on warm days, it's nice to sit down by the moat in the sun quaffing crisp, cold, white wine whilst reading a good book

On the outside the chateau looks promising but the inside is very disappointing. The guide was finishing a tour when we arrived and we expected to be next ones for the tour but she left quickly, never to return. So we explored the 4 rooms on our own which do not take a lot of time because the rooms are... More

Within a 10 minute walk from the train station is this gorgeous chateau. It is free admission unless you want to see objects of art which comes with an admission fee. You get to experience visiting a chateau right in the city, that has been excellently maintained.

We didn't go in as we were late arriving and the place was closed. However we did walk the grounds and took some photos, we also had a game of frisbee with the kids. Look closely at the most, it is full of wildlife, the otters are not shy either! Worth a visit.

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.

I have visited this lovely Chateau twice, once maybe 20 years ago, and again in July 2013. We took the 'full' tour - visiting the castle itself (guide spoke French only but this is France after all!), then we looked around the biscuit museum, then into the tasting room/shop for a tasting of some wines (bought a couple of cases)...

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
