The parish of Gétigné was founded in the Middle Ages around the twelfth century. In 1409, Gétigné joined the Brittany-Poitou Marches. Its crossroads of Anjou, Brittany and Poitou contribute to the economic and military development of the parish. The two rivers Moine and Sèvre saw the development of activities related to the use of hydropower with the presence of many mills.
Since the Middle Ages, Gétigné has a church Sainte Radegonde near an abbey of the same name. The castle of La Roche is built by the lords of Clisson (including Olivier II) around the fourteenth century. The castle is bought in 1461 by Marguerite d'Orléans, wife of Richard d'Étampes for his son, the Duke of Brittany Francis II.
