Reviewed August 27, 2013

Liked the chateaux and grounds around it with a pretty lake area.
There are also different garden areas to look at.
The people in the tourist information were very helpful (they spoke English). There are also rose gardens at the other end of the town near to the church. There are several cafes and bars but we only ate at the Restaurant du chateau. There is a useful mini market in the centre (which has air conditioning) not too expensive. Pleanty of free parking around.

We just happened to arrive on market day. Nice stalls with lots of food to try, great atmosphere. Small village but very quaint square with several cafes and shops. Lovely Chateau. Did not see the other smaller, older chateaus. Well worth a visit.

lassay les chateaux is a charming small town with lovely quiet spaces like the rose garden next to the car park with easy access, we also discovered a very interesting herb garden down by the chateaux lake.
The chateaux itself is smaller than some but makes up for in charm, with a helpful guide printed in english for those like me that need it.
Well worth the visit.

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.
