Lying on the border of Normandy and the Maine region, Chateau of Carrouges is a picturesque chateau that acts as a summary of seven centuries of history. This destination makes an excellent scene for you to enjoy history at its finest while also delighting in a peaceful environment amidst the stresses of sightseeing. It is surrounded by water-filled moats, and apartments reside behind its sober brick and granite pink facades. Meanwhile, the style and décor of Chateau of Carrouges retain all the charm of an inhabited residence.

Don’t forget to check out the first floor with the state apartments, which are decorated in Renaissance and traditional styles. The "Louis XI room" contains a bed with fabric imitating Hungarian point stitch. The chimney breast in the antichambre d'honneur is decorated with a hunting scene. Furniture is of the Louis XIV and Restoration styles. The Salon des Portraits contains portraits of the lords and owners of Carrouges. Lastly, the main staircase, with its pink brick vaults, rests on four piles laid out in a square. To visit Chateau of Carrouges on your trip to Carrouges, use our Carrouges vacation route planner.

  • Very nice building, a magnificent architecture! The Interior is also very interesting, especially the grand staircase, which is pretty amazing. Our guide Victor bobbed like a goat, he was very friendly and seemed to love his job! Park is great, the weather was great when we went, but when weather is nice, walk there must be very nice.

  • Beautiful castle, beautiful Outlook, gardens to die for... To see it, you have to believe because it is a bit hidden in the countryside but worth a visit. Choose the guided tour through the centuries... a great time! a shop at the exit with a lot of good products, what taste after the visit

  • In addition to the classic tour, the Castle and its organization offer tours to theme and snacks or meals on reservation at proposed dates. Unfortunately, we could not try... In addition there are other sites that are worth visiting in the area...

  • It's a very beautiful castle and it has wonderful surroundings.
  • If you go to a charming Castle is well worth a visit. In principle, the building is open to the public, but quite tied to dates. However, the yard and the garden is open.
