Chateau Dampierre, Dampierre-en-Yvelines

2.9
#18 of 21 in Historic Sites in Yvelines
In the Vallée de Chevreuse, Chateau Dampierre is a beautiful place for you to explore history and French design of architecture and landscaping. Your experience begins on the outside. Protected behind fine-wrought iron double gates, the main block and its outbuildings, linked by balustrades, are ranged symmetrically around a dry paved and gravel paths. The park, which lost many trees in the storm of December 1999, offers a formal canal and an 18th century garden folly.

Meanwhile, the interiors are lavishly decorated and designed. The grand gallery was reconstructed for the amateur archaeologist and collector, Honoré Théodore Paul Joseph d'Albert, duc de Luynes, under the direction of antiquarian architect Félix Duban. Sculptor Pierre-Charles Simart contributed Hellenic friezes and reliefs for the project as well.

    the castle is closed to all visits. Some people even think that it is on sale, to confirm. I've seen on previous opinions that there is a great library, it is or was the truth but it was sold at auction in London. And I say to this person ever she has been open to the public

    I visited this Castle a few years ago. Living in the region, it was a great place to bring my family, my friends. Yesterday, I wanted to again visit it with a friend. What amazement when I saw the rate of the visit at 12.50 euros. So I gave up. Is what i really have a desire to share this heritage by applying such rates?

    Good table located in the beautiful grounds of the Castle but the room of the restaurant lacks a bit of heat.
