The most “urban” 


Situated right in the heart of Nantes, the Château des Ducs de Bretagne is the first emblematic monument to be discovered on this itinerary along the Châteaux of the Loire Valley. 
A famous residence of the kings of France in Brittany, the castle is remarkable for its two distinct parts: in the urban part, there is a 500-metre-long rampart walk and, in the courtyard, a 15th-century ducal palace built of tufa stone. 
This magnificent residential palace was built by Francis II, the last Duke of Brittany, and by his daughter Anne of Brittany. It bears witness of six centuries of history!
Visit both the castle and the History Museum of Nantes. Enjoy the discovery!

The Château d’Angers

Kilometer 91

To discover

To discover

The most “impregnable”
On the banks of the Maine, the 11th-century castle of Angers dominates the city centre with its 17 tours and 650 metres of length. Its white tufa stone, typical of the Anjou region, contrasts with the black schist stone originally used to construct Saint-Maurice cathedral, but requisitioned in 1230 to build the castle. 
Travel back to prehistoric times: although the castle was built in the Middle Ages, its position upstream from the Loire was coveted and occupied from Neolithic times by the Gauls, then by the Romans, who made it the centre of the ancient town. 
The castle of Angers is also a fascinating cultural venue, combining tapestry exhibitions, plays, gardens, but also the oldest portcullis in France and the Apocalypse Tapestry, listed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

Water in the moat? 
Well... no, the castle moat has never been filled with water. As for René d’Anjou, he would prefer to welcome wild animals to defend the castle (cheetahs, wolves, lions...).

The most “vertiginous” 
Further along the Loire, you finally reach the Château de Brissac.
The seven storeys of the château are sure to impress and explain its nickname of “Giant of the Loire Valley”. 
Brissac also has an astonishing history: the château has belonged to the same family since 26 May 1502, when it was bought by René de Cossé, a gentleman from Angers. Half a millennium later, the descendants still inhabit the château. 
The 70-hectare landscaped garden invites visitors to relax and meditate among the vineyards. You can even enjoy a wine tasting in the cellars and try the excellent Rosé d’Anjou! 
 

Family

Did you know ?

The Château de Brissac is said to be haunted on stormy nights. 
It is believed to be the ghost of Charlotte who occupies the premises: a fickle wife caught by her husband, Jacques de Brézé, in the bed of another man. Out of anger, the jealous husband killed the two lovers with his sword.

The most “fairy tale” 
Set in the Loire Valley and classified as a World Heritage site in 2000, the Château de Saumur is located along the historic route of the Valley of the Kings, a series of sumptuous châteaux representing France's heritage. The castle's first fortifications date back to the 10th century, and have since been home to a number of different populations: Dukes of Anjou, governors, prisoners of war and soldiers. 
It is now open to the public and has housed the collections of the Musée Municipal and the Musée du Cheval for over a century.

Continue your journey along the banks of the Vienne. The Château de Chinon stands majestically in the heart of the old town. From its rocky spur, it overlooks and offers a panoramic view of Chinon.

You are now in Villandry, at the confluence between the Loire and Cher rivers.
Visit the remarkable Renaissance château and its sumptuous gardens. After passing through various hands and losing some of its splendour, the château was bought in 1906 by the doctor Joachim Carvallo. He devoted his energy and fortune to restoring the Domaine de Villandry to its original beauty. 
The interior of the château is astonishing, but the gardens are no less beautiful. Six gardens feature distinctive styles and architecture:the Kitchen Garden, the Ornamental Garden, the Water Garden, the Sun Garden, the Maze and the Herb Garden.

What is hornbeam? 
The hornbeam is an elegant tree, ideal for regular hedges, with its dry leaves in winter and the bright green of the first leaves in spring. "Our garden is composed of 1,500 linear metres of hornbeam hedges. They delimit the spaces, form cloisters of greenery, accompany visitors on the ramps along the walls, and create our famous maze: 400 metres long alone."

The legend of the lizard
It is said that a young king followed a lizard powdered with gold and discovered a treasure under the hill, giving the site the name Montrésor. 
In fact, the land belonged to the treasurer of Tours Cathedral and was nicknamed “Mont du trésorier” (The Treasurer's Mount), which became Montrésor.

The most “sustainable”
A visit to the Château de Valençay is an opportunity to discover the Prince de Talleyrand, an influential and active lord of the 19th century. The château bears witness to a man of taste: “It is not rest that I feel the need for, but freedom. To do what one wants, to think what one pleases, to follow one's heart instead of seeking one's way: that's the true rest I need, and I have found it here” (Prince of Talleyrand).
The park and gardens of the Château de Valençay extend over 53 hectares. Discover: the French garden, the Duchess’ garden, the Ornamental garden, the Grande Perspective, the Deer Park, the Princes’ Forest... The younger ones can explore the "Grand Labyrinthe de Napoléon", where a treasure hunt is organised in the 2,000m², two-metre-high maze.

The most “fortified castle”
This ruined fortified castle lies right in the heart of Montrichard. Its 12th-century keep dominates the Cher valley and now houses two museums: the Archaeology Museum and the Ethnology Museum. 
From the Middle Ages to modern times! Visiting these museums is quite surprising: a virtual visit is now possible right inside the fortress.

The most “flowery” 
The fortress of Chaumont-sur-Loire was built around the year 1000 to guard the border between the county of Blois and the county of Anjou. 
After its destruction in 1465, the castle was rebuilt in the Renaissance style that can be admired today. 
The English-style garden 
The castle’s park was designed by Henri Duchêne, a landscape gardener inspired by the English-style gardens at the end of the 19th century. Chaumont-sur-Loire is now renowned for the International Garden Festival held every year in the botanical park. 
The Camping de mon Village of Monthou-sur-Cher is located 18 kilometres from Chaumont-sur-Loire.

The most “beautiful interior”
Owned by the same family for six centuries, the Château de Cheverny has not undergone a single transformation since it was built in the 17th century. Cheverny is probably the most sumptuously furnished and richly decorated Château of the Loire Valley to be discovered. 
To visit the château is to discover what the true French classical style is all about. 

The Château de Blois - The most “architectural”
Gothic, Renaissance, Classical - Blois boasts a wide range of architectural styles.
Charles of Orléans, Louis XII, Anne of Brittany, Francis I, Catherine de’ Medici, Henry III, Louis XII, Marie de’  Medici… These are just some of the great royal figures who have stayed at the Royal Château of Blois and influenced its history.

The most “emblematic”
A visit to the Château de Chambord is the perfect way to round off this cultural journey! 
Built in the 16th century by Francis I, Chambord impresses with its style and grandeur. The young king wanted a hunting lodge that would reflect the power of his reign, and it certainly did! Designed as a medieval fortress with decorative elements in the Italian Renaissance style, this architectural masterpiece embodies the transition between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The grounds of the château are also breathtaking. It covers more than 5,000 hectares, making it the largest walled and enclosed forest park in Europe!
