Trip Planner: Europe / France / Pays de la Loire / Maine et Loire / Montreuil-Bellay / Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay
Like most French chateaux, ownership of the castle changed several times, but lucky for you it survived all the upheaval to make a premium wine. With 650 m (2,132 ft) of ramparts and 16 towers, it is one the most awe-inspiring chateaux in the region. The grounds rest beside a lake and include picture perfect medieval gardens, a fully furnished ground floor, and vaulted cellars. Understated elegance and attention to detail is evident in the furnishings. After you delight in your royal surroundings, you can top it off with a tasting of the local vines. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Montreuil-Bellay holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay reviews
Very interesting Chateau, long history and still lived in. Free wine tasting afterwards and gardens give a good view of the surrounding area more »
A fine example of a chateau's life over the centuries. Inside is guided, in French, but you can have a very good written explanation. Walking around the gardens, paths and walls is very pleasant and..... more »
I really enjoyed our visit to this Chateau. The tour is in French, but for those who don't speak French there is a booklet provided in English. Our tour guide was great - she spoke French clearly and explained everything really well. A beautiful building ..... and you get to taste and buy some wines at the end of you wish
Great guided tour in English (as well as French). Nice wine tasting to wrap it all up. Worth a visit if you are in the area
