In the 16th century, this manor-house, today a garden of ruins classified as a historical monument, is the stronghold of Agrippa d'Aubigné, grandfather of the Marquise de Maintenon, great poet of the baroque period and squire of the future Henri IV who passes there in 1576 the happiest days of his life. In fact, the Allée du Roy, an alley of lime trees three times centenary, bears this name in memory of his stay.
Located on the left bank of the Sèvre, on a terrace set on piles out of the floods, below the Gaulish road known as de Magné, close to a ford, the former castel serving as foregroundpost at Coudray-Salbart was transformed from 1596 to 1613 into a pleasure castle by Agrippa d'Aubigné.

Guided visit of 1h30 by the Friends of the castle of Mursay for groups by appointment (common and surroundings of the castle).
Free visit of the outsiders all year round.
