Lassay-les-châteaux, a mesmerising city

Lassay, a town full of character and history

Buildings from the 14th to the 18th century line the streets of Lassay-les-Châteaux, bearing witness to the evolution of architecture through the ages.

The Lassay Château, built in the early 15th century, remains intact. Built into the rock, it is often a surprising sight for first-time visitors. At the foot of the château, hikers can enjoy the surrounding countryside and the ruins of the Bois Thibault and Bois Frou woodlands along the trails.

Ancient streets, wooden and stone communal wash houses, the path along the river Lassay, the tawny granite mansions. A walk around the area is at once peaceful and rejuvenating. The gardens, including the superb municipal rose garden with some 4000 roses, perfume the city from June to September and will welcome you throughout the year.


Tours with theatrical scenes - an exciting treasure hunt, the festival of street arts, "Les Entrelacés,” a candlelit visit of the Château de Lassay... the tourist season is a rich and varied period!
