The Château de Brissac in the Loire Valley
157ft tall, the Château de Brissac towers as the tallest château in France. Visit its beautiful park, its wonderfully decorated rooms, and even taste some wine.
Château de Brissac: “The Giant of the Loire Valley”
157ft in height, 7 floors and 204 rooms: the Château de Brissac is truly enormous. Because of this, it is the tallest French château today.
Let the 13th Duke of Brissac guide you through the château’s rooms filled with history.
Inside, take in its enchanting decoration, featuring tapestries and gold-leafed ceilings.
A must-see: the Grand Salon and its family portraits, the salle à manger and its impressive table set, and of course the bedroom that King Louis XIII used during his visit in 1620.
The château is also home to a 200-seat Belle Epoque theatre dedicated to opera. A magnificent room built at the end of the 19th Century inspired by Jeanne Say, the Marquis’ wife.
Park and Vineyard of the Brissac estate
With its blossoming flowerbeds, take a romantic stroll through the Anglo-Chinese garden park at Château de Brissac, situated next to the Aubance River and covered by the shadows of 100 year-old trees.
Before leaving, rendez-vous in the château’s cellar for some Rosé d’Anjou wine-tasting, made from the vast 64 acre vineyards.
