Open every day of the year ! The medieval fortress dominates the village with its austere facade. But don't be daunted: the open drawbridge is an invitation to enter into the refined lodgings of a great lord. It is the most fully furnished castle of...more

Lots to see and experience in this old French Castle. Some rooms are made up with models so you can see what things really looked like in the past.

One our favorite chateaux. The display depicting Charles VIII’s wedding to Anne of Bretagne was so lifelike and told the story well. The art and floor tiles are amazing. We ran out of time to fully explore the grounds behind the fortress, but enjoyed what...More

The castle is a fortress, well maintained and interesting. The show of dueling with the sword is to be seen. The view of the Loire Valley is splendid. But the price of entry remains high.

The pretty town of Langeais is dominated by the chateau which, due to ongoing cleaning in parts, looks almost new. It was built mainly as a domestic residence rather than as a defence. However the drawbridge does function and rooms contain furniture such as beds,...More
