Château de la Placelière

La Placelière, property belonging to the city of Nantes, has perpetuated a tradition of reception, refuge and hospice during more than a century. The castle is a “Folie Nantaise” and was built in the eighteenth century by Guillaume Grou, a ship-owner from Nantes. Behind its magnificent gate, opening to the guests, the castle reveals all its majesty. The charm of the gardens, the wood and the watering places is an open invitation to go for a walk.

The vineyard is a jewel protected by high and long walls surrounding the property. The feeling of wellness, very specific to the park, is reinforced by the blooming of magnolia trees, coming from the very first trees brought back from Virginia by the navigators from Nantes.

Château de la Placelière also asserts its identity through the character of its Muscadet Sèvre et Maine and the variety of its local wines range called “Jardins de la Placelière”, gathering Chardonnay, Sauvignon as well red grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Gamay.
