    Château de Brissac

    France’s tallest chateau.

    204 rooms, seven storeys and seventy-hectare grounds have earned Brissac Chateau, the tallest in France, the nickname "Giant of the Loire Valley". The imposing mediaeval structure dates back to the mid-fifteenth century and underwent extensive but incomplete renovation in the early seventeenth century, leading to the description "a new castle partially built in an old castle partially destroyed."

    The chateau was sold to René de Cossé, first lord of Brissac, in 1502 and is the home of the thirteenth Duke of Brissac today.

    Visitors come to admire the Grand Salon, Reception Hall, Louis XIII Bedchamber, Hunting Chamber, Portrait Gallery and 170-seat theatre.
