Chateau du Lude

Chateau du Lude


Situated on the crossroad of Anjou and Touraine, between Le Mans and Tours, Le Lude is the most northerly chateau of the Loire Valley.

Le Lude is one of the last important historical castles in France, still inhabited by the same family for the last 260 years.

Four in one! The Château is testimony of four centuries of French architecture. A stronghold transformed into an elegant house during the Renaissance and the 18th century.
Both adults and children alike will be enchanted by its refined interiors, but also by the gardens, the stables and the dungeon. A visit full of surprises!

The monument is located in the charming valley of le Loir. Its gardens have evolved throughout the centuries. It is a harmonious combination of French design and an English style landscape, with a rose garden, topiaries, a labyrinth and a botanical walk.
