Surrounded by vineyards, this castle was built between 1480 and 1495 by Christophe de Goulaine, a gentleman from the chamber of Louis XII and François I. Left over from its military vocation, it still has a machicolation tower and a castelet, with a bridge over the moat. After the 15C main building, built in tufa in the ogival style, two wings were added in the early 17C. The interior, where the kitchen and parlours can be visited, houses an exhibition on the LU biscuit factory.
