The history of La Menaudière, is one that crosses the ages, beginning in the XVth century of this famous region.
Since then three main families have owned the château de La Ménaudière: the Brissonet, the Caillat and the Ferrière families.
The Brissonet family owned it from 1460 for 200 years. This family has some famous members such as Jean Brissonet, first mayor of Tours and Catherine Brissonet who was involved in initiating the construction of the Château de Chenonceau.
During the sixties, the château was bought by a company that invested substantial amounts of money to renovate the château turning it into a 3 star hotel.
In 2009, Mickael Marchand, current owner of the château bought it. Mickael has always been a stone and history lover. While the idea of running the chateau as a hotel was intriguing he wanted to rediscover the historical life of the chateau as a family home. Renting his home to other families keeps the story of the chateau alive by sharing the spirit of the property.

Je n’en reviens toujours pas : notre événement s’est non seulement bien déroulé mais je dois reconnaître en plus qu’aucune ombre n’est venue noircir le séjour. Outre le temps estival que nous avons eu, nous permettant de profiter pleinement des activités extérieures et de la cour pour y déjeuner, nous avons tous aimé passionnément notre séjour à La Ménaudière. Le site impressionne par la taille de son parc, le château par son architecture et son volume, ses dépendances, les activités qu’il propose. Il est pratique pour les traiteurs qui peuvent se rapprocher de la cuisine et des salles de restauration. La cuisine est aussi très spacieuse ce qui, pour quelqu’un qui comme moi qui aime cuisiner, est un vrai plaisir (préparation des petits déjeuners et des buffets du midi). Le contact avec les personnes sur place, notamment Mme Chaize, s’est bien déroulé aussi. Elle a été à l’écoute lorsque j’avais des questions et notre arrivée / notre départ se sont passés dans les meilleures conditions. Le problème de ce genre de séjour c’est que nous mettons 6 mois à le concevoir, à l’imaginer, et un jour on se réveille et c’était déjà hier. Heureusement nos photos nous permettent d’en profiter sans modération.
