A beautiful chateau with equally picturesque grounds. The mixture of architectural styles makes this not only a handsome but unique place to visit. The interior is equally intriguing.

Somehow, I felt like im a princess and the chateau was my home. It's got a lovely field and you will feel at ease here. We didn't go into the chateau not sure what it was like in there. But the surroundings was very beautiful for photo shots. Refer to photos.

This chateau was everything I hoped for set in a delightful little village. The chateau tour was great, you can buy wine in the cellar gift shop (the rose was incredible). A very cool hidden tunnel beneath the grounds.

Marqise in person was our guide. Castle is like a small city in side the walls with theater, different romms for dancing and dinner. Museum preserved rooms and nice tasting cellar.

Brissac is an interesting historic place located in a quiet Brittany town. The castle looks a bit odd, as if a newer building -whose facades look more as a palace than a castle- had been set upon a former structure, being the tallest castle in France. The ticket will set you back 5 euros if you want to see the... More
