Chateau Dampierre, Dampierre-en-Yvelines

1.5
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.
