Castle of Nitray

Its development is linked to the history of France since Aimery Lopin, Mayor of Tours and Master of requests of Louise de Savoie, mother of François 1st, decided the building of this castle.

Seventeen families have owned the castle since the building of the castle, in particular the family of General of Empire Jean-Jacques Liébert from 1807 to 1922.

On October 1st, 1955, the estate was sold on execution at the request of Mr. Georges-Marie Dermy who pursued Mr. Taillandier, industrial residing in Cameroon, who seems not to have paid the whole price settled in 1953. The starting price was made at 14,500,000 old French francs by public auction. As no purchaser stood, the estate was purchased on October 17th, 1955 by the family Brebart d’Halluin. Etienne d’Halluin implemented the first renovations: roof of the castle, the dovecote and the hunting lodge and then reorganized the vineyard to bring it to 15 hectares.

Since 1989, Earl Hubert de l’Espinay, son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. d’Halluin, has been pursuing the work of his father-in-law transforming the sale of wine from bulk to bottle, improving vinification and creating two other activities to improve the estate returns on income: a tourist activity and room rental activity.

Today the château de Nitray welcomes 8 000 visitors a year, including many French and foreign tourists as well as business seminars, wedding type family receptions, birthdays, family meetings, etc.


The castle of Nitray is a family house from the Renaissance. The owners will great you in this wnderful site between vineyards and the river Cher. The owner will show you his cellar and you will taste his vines.

Castle of Langeais

Plunge yourself into the daily life of a prince at the end of the Middle Ages. The credenzas and sculpted beds, trunks with elaborate locks, prestigious wall hangings from the 15th and 16th centuries, but also the refined dishes, precious tableware and reconstituted costumes put life back into the reception halls and the private rooms in the lordly residence.
Relive the event that marked the château’s history : the royal wedding of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany, portrayed by strikingly realistic wax figures.
Walk along the parapet walk with its machicolations, then visit the medieval-style gardens and the park. There you will discover the keep’s construction site as the builders of the year 1000 would have known it, the tree house and the belvedere on the Loire.
Please note : the drawbridge is one of the last to still be activated manually, at the château’s opening and closing times !
