Discover the château de goulaine and the official museum of the lu biscuit factory on a guided tour centred on history and gourmet items.

Head to the former 17th century stables, now the Official lu Museum, and surround yourself with more than 500 works of art that will transport you to the gourmet and artistic world of the biscuit factory.

End this pleasant visit by tasting a ‘Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine-sur-lie' wine from the “Marquis de Goulaine” collection, accompanied by authentic lu ‘Véritable Petit Beurre' biscuits (optional).
