This château looks great from the outside but when you go inside, you don't see medieval rooms...you just see lots of blocks of information which could be looked up on the internet....and you see a film for 30 mns...Compared to other sites to see in...More

First of all, thank you for your comment on visiting the castle. The Château de Baugé is a 15th century castle so there are not furniture in it, we do explain this feature to all our visitors to avoid any deception. The tour included the...More

Pretty chateau with virtually nothing left of the interior fittings - however it does have a really well-done film of King Rene's life and times (don't groan...it's heaps better than many I've sat through...Chinon take note) and a well-planned exhibition of medieval history, complete with...More

We drove through Baugé on our way to Le Lude and were impressed by the chateau dominating the square (car park mainly) and vowed to return. However, when we spoke to the staff at the tourist information (located within the chateau) it seemed a lot...More

The outside looks lovely but there is little to see in the restricted parts you are allowed in. The displays are aimed at school children. We did really enjoy the apothecary and ancient hospital a few hundred metres down the road and the walk around...More

We have visited the town before and usually park in the car park next to the Chateau so we thought it was about time we checked it out. There is only the option of a guided visit and rather than wait several hours for an...More

Chateau also contains excellent tourist office with helpful staff and you can buy a combined ticket with nearby apothecary in hotel de dieu. Unfurnished with well presented audio/visuals telling history of king rene of Anjou who build this as his hunting lodge

Lovely chateau housing the tourist information office. Well worth looking around. Dominates the centre of Bauge, perfect to step inside to have a break from the heat of the day.

An imposing facade but once inside the Revolution had the furniture and there's not much to see apart from a multi-media show in the chateau roof which recounts the history of one of the former occupants. Pass unless it's raining.

Although trying hard to promote the chateau with a warm welcome and delightful tour guide, it was not a very exciting place to visit. It is really just looking at an audio-visual and learning about the history of the chateau and its occupants. The rooms...More
