The castle of the Plessis-Bourré greeted several shootings of movies and TV films, among which we mainly retain :


. Peau d’Âne (Donkey Skin) by Jacques Demy

. Le Bossu (On Guard) by Philippe de Broca

. Fanfan la Tulipe, by Gérard Krawczyk

. La Princesse de Montpensier (The Princess of Montpensier), by Bertrand Tavernier


The Plessis offers classic or unusual settings :


. two drawbridges in working order

. moat filled of water

. a wall walk

. prisons

. XVth century outsides

. XVth to XIXth century insides

. a woody and pastoral environment

. a lot of premises for technical and management, along with ”off-camera” spaces allowing the assembly of marquees (dressing rooms, food service, etc)
