Langeais in the Loire Valley

The town of Langeais is, we believe, one of pleasant surprises of the Loire Valley. It offers a chateau with a great history (and a drawbridge) our favourite bridge over the river Loire and a popular Sunday Market.

Chateau de Langeais as we see it today was constructed in the 15th century on the site of the original fortress of which only part of the keep remains.

The grounds are great for kids young and old with a great tree-house to explore as well as a kiddies play park and good views of the bridge and river Loire.

Sunday is a good day to visit as the town has a lively morning market.

The town also has a fine church that you should make a point of visiting when in the town.
