Chateaux in Maine-et-Loire

Maine-et-Loire boasts some of France's most visited castles.  This is probably due to the variety of castles on offer here.

You'll find Renaissance gems such as Chateau de Serrant, chocolate-box wonders such as Chateau de Brissac and medieval fortresses such as Chateau de Plessis-Bourre and the 13th century Chateau d'Angers.

Lesser well known castles include the imposing Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay and the military style fortress of Montsoreau which has been recently renovated.
