Lassay les Châteaux - a delightful village

The village of Lassay les Châteaux is found amidst the beautiful and gentle landscapes of the Mayenne, in the Pays de la Loire region of north-western France. It is a place where the pace of life runs with the seasons, according more to tradition and the old rural ways than trying to keep time with modern society. It is this charm, coupled with a gorgeous setting on the edge of a lake which reflects the turreted splendour of a beautiful chateau, which keeps the visitors coming back for more, and brings newcomers set on discovering this little jewel for the first time.

Three chateaux

Lassay les Châteaux, as its name implies, is a town that boasts multiple chateaux. Sadly, two of these are in ruins, but the one that is intact is a superb example of 15th century grand architecture from the region. Open to the public, the chateau is truly worth seeing, and creates a marvellous atmosphere in the village it overlooks.

High days and holidays

Lassay is a market village, and on market day (Wednesday) the place assumes an air of excitement and vigour that contrasts with its tranquil approach to life for most of the week! The other times of the year when the village kicks up its heels and celebrates in imitable French fashion are the fête days. There are various festivals held in and around the village, and two of the most notable are the Bastille Day celebrations, which are really unmissable, and the quaintly named Three Elephants Music Festival held in July each year.

Shopping and services

Whether you are planning to stay for a day or forever, it is important to know whether or not the village offers shops and other services. The good news is that, for a small village community, Lassay les Châteaux is really well equipped with plenty of local shops and all the necessary services to hand. There are larger towns easily accessible too, so you will lack for nothing here, with superstores available at Mayenne and Le Ferté Macé.

And for fun...

The village offers a couple of good restaurants, and a friendly bar as well, making lunchtimes and evenings a pleasant and sociable occasion should you so wish. It's not the place to seek nightclubs and theme parks, but there are lots of pleasant activities available to you around Lassay les Châteaux.

Activities on offer

The area is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse-riders, who appreciate that the slower way to see the area is the best and most enjoyable. You miss too much when you whiz by in a car! Lassay has its own swimming pool, and there are lakes and rivers in the locality where you can swim, fish, canoe and even sail.
