Originally built by the counts of Anjou in the 11th century, this magnificent castle today is the property of the Duke of Brissac – the Cossé-Brissac family. At seven storeys the castle is the tallest in Loire valley and therefore nicknamed the ‘Giant of the Loire valley’.The castle structure as seen today was rebuilt in the 15th Century by Pierre de Brézé, the wealthy Chief Minister of King Charles VII of France.
