The Château d'Apremont is a ruined 16th century château in the commune of Apremont in the Vendée département of France.[1]

It was constructed on a promontory overlooking the valley of the Vie. Portions of it are believed to date from the 13th century.[citation needed] The two extant towers were built by Philippe Chabot de Brion in the first half of the 16th century.[citation needed]

This château is one of approximately 300 châteaux of the Loire Valley tour.[citation needed]

The Château d'Apremont is the property of the commune. It has been listed since 1926 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.[1]
