It was admitted to the list of historical monuments from 1930.The Château des Réaux belonged in the sixteenth century, to Amaury Peau, then Jeanne de Montejean, Countess of Sancerre, Antoine de Breuil and from 1455 Gilles de Brye. After going to ruin in the fifteenth century, it was purchased by Jean Briçonnet, first mayor of Tours. The ancient medieval fortress remained only the general building installation: an island surrounded on all sides by a large ditch full of water that had to ensure safety. The present castle was built on the site of the old castle by Jean Briçonnet, son of William Briçonnet, lord of the region then appointed Plessis-Rideau.
