We took the guided tour in group of ten visitors and the tour was conducted in French, which we did not speak. However, the pleasant guide was well-conversant in English and readily answered the questions we put to her. The tour itself was well worth it and we enjoyed strolling in the well-tended to gardens leading down to the river.

Very interesting place. Took a French language tour as English ones don't start until May. However, English language notes are provided, so they provided (for me)the missing 50%. Guide had English parents, was very good and provided details in English. Wine tasting afterwards and couldn't help buying some.

We did the last tour of the day with an English guide and loved the experience. The chateau itself and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. We also did a wine tasting post tour.

A beautiful chateau with wonderful gardens and views. Admission included a guided tour which we were given in English with another English couple. Superb!

A lovely castle in a beautiful little town! A great castle to visit which provides a guided tour of the castle and the grounds! Possible to do some wine tasting afterwards! Lovely town to visit :)

We only had time for the wine tasting. The tour was 1hour and we didn't have time. Good value tour with guide if you go. Lovely building and gardens. We went on a wet day so didn't do the garden which was a cheaper rate.

A really picturesque château in the little village of Montreuil-Bellay. We were able to look around many rooms inside of the Château, and the views of the surrounding region from here are spectacular. The admission fee was reasonable, and included a free wine tasting session after which was really nice. You then have the opportunity, if you wish, to purchase... More

You can only visit the chateau by guided tour, which is only in french. There are not that many rooms, but they are extensively decorated. I read that they have tours in English, but apparently only on special occasions so we understood nothing the guide said. Most of the garden you can only look at from a distance, but since... More

We missed the English tour, and had to take a French one - fine for me, but not for the rest of the party. The guide was very informative, and in each room there was plenty of time to look at everything once she'd finished speaking, but she spoke for a long time which didn't go down well with the...
