Château du Plessis-Bourré

Recommended
The backdrop for numerous films, on account of its wide moat, double drawbridge and towers, redolent of a bygone age. Beyond the vaulted entryway, the fortress transforms into a pleasure palace, with spacious courtyard, arcaded gallery, tower staircases and tall lucarnes of its lodgings. Inside, note the reception rooms with fine Louis XIV and Louis XV furniture, and the guardroom with its fine late-15C painted ceiling.
