One of the few Château that still shows its Medieval roots with a ruined keep and battlements.

This place draws us back,it must have been around a decade since we found it on rout to Angers. Well worth a visit and take a picnic....go easy on the wine as the laws have changed somewhat.

It's not far off the main N182 from Le Lion d'Angers and Angers on the D106 to Le Plessis Macé. It's what a fairy-tale castle should look like (see... More
