Create an itinerary including Chateau du Plessis-Mace
A dream castle with a fairytale balcony to survey your parishes below, at Chateau du Plessis-Mace you become royalty. You must have a guide to visit the interior of the chateau, but this is an asset because your guide will lead you through daily life in the chateau and the history of its many occupants. A traditional medieval garden, and chapel housing one of the oldest oak platforms, complete the picture of Chateau du Plessis-Mace's notable attractions. However, you shouldn’t overlook the grandeur of the chateau’s exterior, so well-preserved that you can almost see the lords of Plessis walking out the the large, wooden doors for a walk through their beloved gardens.

The castle management is entrusted to the EPCC Anjou Theatre, who performs an entire season of modern and classic theatricals on its grounds. Use our Longuenee-en-Anjou route builder site to add Chateau du Plessis-Mace and other attractions to your Longuenee-en-Anjou vacation plans.

  • Only visited from the outside and it is still a truly amazing castle. Well planned garden and walk around. Highly recommended and we might go back to visit inside.
  • Fantastic!! I must come back and get the grande tour. It's truly beautiful and worth the visit.
