This fortress-castle was built in the 12th century and was once home to the Bishops of Angers. After changing many hands the Castle was finally bought by Daniel Duclaux, a wealthy industrialist who had a passion for all things art. He filled the castle with great works of art from across the world: literature, furniture, paintings, tapestries, earthenware, silverware, rare manuscripts and so on. In 2002 the castle along with its valuable possessions was bequeathed to the city of Angers by Daniel Duclaux’s wife Mary Dickson-Duclaux. Over 900 items, the collection includes:

  • Italian & Spanish ceramic collection.
  • Medieval tapestries and Flanders.
  • Around 60 ancient books.

Musee - Chateau De Villeveque Reviews & Ratings

  • Joli manoir du xve siècle et bien situé sur la vallée du Loir. Très belles oeuvres du Moyen âge mais hélas trop peu sont exposées par rapport à la richesse du fonds.

  • Musée à ne pas manquer, le charme du Moyen-âge, très belle expo

  • Très déçue par ce site. Heureusement, visite gratuite car nous y sommes allés lors de la nuit des musées. Visite faite en 20/25 min donc ça ne vaut pas les 4 euros demandés comme droit d'entrée habituellement...

  • Après une bonne balade à pied il est agréable de se reposer dans le parc du château

  • Promenade à faire
