Rebuilt in the 15th century by Louis XI, the castle of Langeais is one of the oldest Loire Valley chateaux. Its architecture illustrates the transition between two styles: visible from the town, the drawbridge, towers and machicolations evoke a medieval fortress, with the defensive requirements of the time. On the park side, the castle presents the codes of the Renaissance, with openings to the outside and symmetrical lines.
During the visit, each room in the Château de Langeais reveals sculpted furniture, rich hangings and tapestries, but also art objects that recall the life of the great lords. They can be seen in the bedrooms and the wedding hall. This one reconstitutes the secret marriage of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany. Decisive, it marks the attachment of the duchy of Brittany to the crown of France.
In the heart of the park, the remains of an ancient keep built by Foulques Nerra bring us back to the history of the Middle Ages. The garden also houses a gigantic tree house, a belvedere to admire the Loire and the pretty Langeais bridge, as well as children's games.
Property of the Institute of France, the castle of Langeais offers throughout the year animations for young and old.
In everyone's opinion, an unmissable visit on the itinerary of the Loire by bike, between Tours and Chinon (Indre-et-Loire).
