HISTORY

Château de Beaulieu is recognised for the beauty and charm of its architecture, and is designated a Monument Historique. The Château was formerly the private residence of the regional Préfet, the political chief of the department of Maine-et-Loire. Beaulieu had been built in the 18th century as the family home of the renowned royal architect Jean Drapeau. The Château stands just 200 meters from the banks of the River Loire, and is only 2 km from the lovely old town of Saumur.

From here, you can easily visit the famous treasures of the Loire Valley: the Château of Saumur, the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, the French National School of Equitation, the famous Cadre Noir, the troglodytic cave dwellings, and the wonderful towns of Angers, Chinon, Tours, the many chateaux along the Loire, and world-renowned vineyards. Saumur, the “Pearl of Anjou”, and the Loire Valley were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 2000.
