There comes a time in life when one has seen enough castles, but this castle is still well worth seeing. Its setting above the river with its dry moat is superb. The castle is sympathetically managed and is steeped in history much of it entwining...More

This is a very nice medieval Château Fort. The tour was detailed. The tapisserie of the Apocalypse was very impressing. The room where the tapisserie quite cold. Altogether the castle was amazing.

One goes here to see the Apocalypse Tapestry, which is probably too much to take in all at once, it is such a remarkable achievement. It is worthwhile to take the free guided tour of these (in French). The room where these are kept is...More

It had great view from the tower itself and best part is that you can enjoy evening till 10:30 at Angers.

9€ is the price you have to pay to have the chance to see the beautiful masterpiece located into the castle or what remained of it. Avoid the bar inside the castle. The apocalypsetapestry is breath taking for the lover of that kind of artwork.

We recently spent 2 hours here exploring the chateau, Great views of the town from the ramparts; and great to have the chance to view such a beautiful tapestry as the Apocolypse. A Petit Train also runs from outside the chateau

Our second visit, with the kids this time - everyone loved it. BUT the officious/fonctionaire type woman on the front desk would let my kids in for free as they didn't have ID with them. Cost me an extra euro 27, which was completely unnecessary...More
