The charming village of Montsoreau, listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, and its stunning white tufa stone château, magnificently dominate the Loire River. The Renaissance Château de Montsoreau, made famous by the novel "La Dame de Montsoreau" ("The Lady of Montsoreau") by Alexandre Dumas, contains an exhibition circuit about the Loire River called "Imaginaires de la Loire" ("Imaginations of the Loire").

After visiting the castle, do not miss a walk along the beautiful flower-filled narrow streets of the village.

Additional information
Montsoreau

Montsoreau is a concentrate of vitality, history and passion to discover at the rhythm of the "Light River".

Cradle of the Renaissance in the Loire Valley, with the first castle of the Loire Renaissance (XVth century), Montsoreau unfolds majestically at the edge of the water.

Small paradise preserved, the village is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, ranked among the Most Beautiful Villages of France, the "Small Towns of Character", and is in the heart of a natural park.

At the turn of the flowery lanes, we are surprised by the passage of a wooden Loire boat, by a new point of view on the castle or by the vines which dominate the landscape.

In summer, Montsoreau looks like Riviera. Its restaurants in terraces are the rendezvous of the fans of old cars and beaches of Ile au Than and the confluence of holidaymakers. Every 2nd Sunday of the month, the Montsoreau Bullets attract bargain hunters from all over the world, and fans of contemporary art gather at Montsoreau-Museum of Contemporary Art to discover the exhibition of the moment.
