Chateau du Plessis-Bourré

Formerly this area was called Plessis-le-Vent. It was bought by Jean Bourré , Grand Treasurer of King Louis XI , who gave his name in 1462 …

The castle was built at the direction of Jean Bourré in just 5 years from 1468 to 1473 , a remarkable achievement for the time. Even today it remains as it was built in the fifteenth century.

The Chateau du Plessis-Bourre has the distinction of being Transition style. Indeed, it has all the characteristics of an end of the medieval fortress with its defense system.
