Baugé and Baugeois are between the valleys of the Loire and Loir in Anjou. Baugé is 35 km from Saumur and 40 km from Angers. The situation is ideal for exploring the Loire Valley and its castles.

Bauge-the-young is born in the eleventh century by the will of Fulk III Nerra. The Count of Anjou, whose heir founded the powerful Plantagenet dynasty, established an imposing fortress at the confluence of the altree and Couasnon on a promontory now leveled. Fourteen years after the brilliant victory of the Franco-Scottish troops on the chivalry of the Duke of Clarence, March 22, 1421, the Duchess Yolande of Aragon was forced to burn the citadel to prevent the English settled there. His son, Duke René of Anjou, heir to a ruin. In 1454, he decided to build a new castle leaning on the wall of the old wall. It gives a boost to the city, when his nephew Louis XI attached Anjou to the crown in 1471.
