French Castles and heritage in Anjou Loire Valley

In a region crammed with monuments, why is Anjou special? For one thing, most of its châteaux are lived-in. Serrant, Brissac, Montgeoffroy, Le Plessis-Bourré and Montreuil-Bellay, to name a few, are real homes filled with ancestral treasures.

Among other remarkable features are Europe’s largest underground castle at Brézé, and the world’s longest medieval tapestry housed in the chateau d’Angers - the Loire Valley’s largest fortress!

Religious marvels include the fine Romanesque priory at Cunault and intriguing twisted spires around Baugé. Fontevraud – France’s largest monastic city – still displays recumbent effigies of King Henry II and his son, Richard the Lionheart!

To discover which Anjou lady was “England’s happiness”, check your Shakespeare!
