An adorable petit character town nestled in the Mayenne countryside. Magnificent Chateaux, Stunning rose garden, lots to see and do to suit all!

You haven't been to the Loire if you haven't visited Lassay-Les-Chateaux!

Lassay is a wonderful little town. As well as the main Chateau, there are 2 others. At one of them, there is a medieval banquet which is held on several nights in August. Try and get along, just for the minstrels, local singers and a rather good atmosphere stoked by plenty of wine and good food.

There is a small market on Friday (I think) in a lovely little square in the centre of town. There are a couple of mid range restaurants, but it's a little surprising that there doesn't seem to be a top notch one (correct at the time of typing).

The countryside surrounding Lassay is very French, with a slow and quiet atmosphere. If you like excellent food, do try the Auberge in Poulay which is about 5 miles south of Lassay. Lunch is unbelievable value whilst dinner is merely superb value.

Easy to find chateau which is still used by the original family/owners at weekends. Less formal than many chateaux and bi-lingual guide. Pretty town of Lassay and actually within the centre rather than a few kilometres outside. Pretty gardens and huge working kitchen. Well worth a visit. In fact we have been twice. Reasonable entry charge.

This review is mixed. The town is fun to walk around and the little plaques on the buildings have English and make interesting reading. The Chateaux is fantastic but the tours are compulsory and in French. You are provided with an English file to help understand what you are seeing but it's dry and missing much of the interesting stuff given in the French only tour. Our little tour group consisted of 80% English speaking but the tour guide only spoke in French though capable of basic English and it left most of the audience lost while the 4-5 French laughed out loud at the jokes etc from the tour guide. This sums up tourist problems in France, such a wasted opporunity. However I still recommend visiting Lassay and if you speak French then it's a must in Mayenne.
