Very pretty small castle, some amazing carved stonework around the fireplaces. Basement is fascinating; sad but understandable you can’t get in the secret passageway. Evidence of cannonball attack left to see on the outside.

Chateau de Lanquais gets a star in Michelin Vert, so we drove up for a look. Its most striking aspect is external, both from the rear, where cars are parked and where the juxtaposition between the medieval fortress and renaissance chateau is most marked, and...More

We approached from the village up a wooded lane for an unplanned late morning first visit with no idea what to expect, Suddenly through the trees was the surprisingly grand chateau facade, with closed iron gates to the side. It opened at 2pm! But the...More

Nice, interesting castle to visit. I was staying in the area and this chateau was easy to find and had a nice town near it where we had lunch.

We didn’t have any city pass and we didn’t check out any other castles in the area. We used it mainly as an overnight stay and what a pleasant surprise it was!
