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. However, the castle architecture shows some Baroque influences which were probably added during the 17th Century.

Amongst the fabulous French architecture, others attractions at the Chateau:

  • The castle gardens, inspired by the Romantic period. Enjoy the Jeanne Say's waterfall, vineyards and so on.
  • The 500 year old estate vineyards and a wine cellar.

  • Private opera house, Belle Époque, born out of the ambitious dream of Lady Jeanne Say-Marquise Brissac. A talented soprano herself she hosted many concerts at the Castle’s Opera house.
