A lovely chateau to visit, with beautiful grounds. Well worth it. We were able to walk around the open parts of the chateau, whilst reading a written guide in English. The grounds were very well kept and it was extremely peaceful during our visit. A lovely place for a long or short walk.

Brissac bills itself as the region's tallest castle, which is a strange claim to fame, luckily, the castle is also grand, situated on a great domain and is well presented. As a private castle that is still used as the family home, the decoration is quite different compared to the castles managed by the State. It has a more homely feel - while still clearly being a castle. We appreciated the little excentricities of the family over the generations : from the private theatre, to the complete bound collection of Paris Match magazines and the hunting room covered in antlers. The grounds are lovely and we had a lovely walk through them. The visit ends with a wine tasting, which is probably more enjoyable when not limited by Covid protocols. But at least it was safe. A very nice little visit.

This place certainly has the wow factor from the outside and was a fabulous introduction the the chateaux of the Loire. There is not a vast amount to see inside but plenty to keep us occupied for an hour or so. We liked the fact that the family still live there even though that meant much of it is closed off. Due to Covid there are no guided tours but this wasn't a problem. We wanted a 'taste' rather than hours inside on a sunny day so it was ideal for us. The grounds are extensive and natural rather than formal but provided a very pleasant walk and fine views of the chateau. Wine tasting in the cellar was a bonus! Good value at €25 for a family of 4. You are not allowed to picnic in the grounds but there are tables on thee terrace near the car-park and can leave/return if you wish.

This château is a must-visit, when you are in the Loire valley. The giant of the Loire is its nickname. It is possible to visit just the parc grounds (paid) or both the château and parc. I would recommend the second option which gives you more value for money. You can visit the ground, first and second floor, as well as the cellars. You can also taste and buy locally produced rosé and cabernet; both are reasonably priced, so you can have a taste of your holiday back home.

This is a striking chateau to visit. It's easy to reach and parking is available about 50m from the entrance. You can visit two main floors plus the basement and there's a little wine sampling by the shop. The grounds are very large. It's a pleasant visit, probably just the right scale for teens who need their culture in bite-sized chunks! The local village has some nice bars and restaurants and is very pretty too.
