Privileges tour


With Melaine du Merle, discover the stories which made History !


Far from an academic guided tour, we propose a new discover time with the Director of the castle.

He is very keen to show you the underside, in this way you can discover backrooms, usually not allowed to visit (like the kitchen or the washerwoman’s bedroom), which give you a broadest vision of what could be the life at the castle during those last 600 years.


Trained to manage an historical monument ant not to show around it, he brings a different eye on the castle and its history.


The end of the tour is marked by a talk around a glass of Crémant de Loire.


Record on TripAdvisor :


« My kids, my wife and I had booked for the privileges tour with Mr. du Merle, Director of the castle, who gave us his knowledge and his passion. A tour well adapted for children with interactions, activation of the drawbridge, and conclusion with champagne in the kitchen of the castle. First castle in a succession of visits on five days, the bar was high with this nice experience. That’s worth to going out of your way to see. »
