  • Beautiful Chateau my favourite part was the opera house and listening to Anne Boleyn. This is a little gem and is definitely worth a visit. The wines were also good I just wish we were not cycling.....  more

  • It was a very powerful overwhelming chateau inside with wood beamed ceilings throughout the chateau. The beamed ceilings have detailed mini-scenes on them with other painted and gold accents on them. The husband's bedroom was one that shouldn't be missed. It was quite impressive and more than most of the other chateaus I have visited. The wife's bedroom was very nicely done. The theme throughout was with animal antlers and animal heads on the walls. The kitchen was great to see, too! The grounds looking from the windows was pretty to see and photograph. There were very wonderful pieces of furniture with inlays and all. The tapestries were worth seeing. They even have a wine cellar where you can sample their wines for free and purchase bottles of you would like to. Many people were doing just that! Plus they have a room for staged performances to take place with theater seating and all! I definitely would recommend visiting this chateau. It has a lot to offer visitors to experience!
  • You are assured a great day out at the Chateau Brissac. The Family have been here since 1502 and still occupy the upper levels. The period furniture fills every room and the cellars are used to store wine, which can be tasted before purchase. Amongst the features are stables, a mosoleum and a vineyard. Free parking is only 200m from the entrance gate. Adult tariff is €11
