submit to reddit


Château du Plessis-Bourré is a Château of the Loire Valley in France, situated in the commune of Écuillé in the Maine-et-Loire department. Built in less than 5 years from 1468 to 1472 by Finance Minister Jean Bourré, an advisor to King Louis XI.

It was acquired by Reille-Soult de Dalmatie family in 1911 and classified as a Monument historique in 1931. It was managed by Bruno & Antoinette de Ferrieres de Sauvebeuf from 1978 until January 2009.

Le Plessis-Bourré until 2009 remained one of the few french castles inhabited by its owner. With the retirement of Bruno & Antoinette, Aymeric d'Anthenaise took over helped by Jean-Francois Reille-Soult Dalmatie.

It is open for visits to the public.
