Chateau de Voltaire, Ferney-Voltaire
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Philosopher Voltaire personally oversaw the construction of every Doric column and Corinthian pilaster at Chateau de Voltaire. Apparently he liked it well enough to purchase the entire domain of Ferney, now a bustling market town. After Voltaire's death, Catherine the Great of Russia purchased much of his writing. Stop by the castle's library to catch a glimpse of the shelves that once held these works. Access is by guided tour only; most are in French, so check the website for the English-language tour schedule. It's strongly recommended to reserve in advance.

purtroppo il castello è in restauro da tempo e resterà chiuso ancora fino all'anno prossimo. Interessante comunque girare per il giardino e leggere i commenti alla vita di Voltaire in questo paesino.Unfortunately the castle is being restored for some time and will be closed again until next year. Interesting nonetheless turn for the garden and read the comments to the life of Voltaire in this village.show original
The chateau is closed for restoration for 3 years. The website says nothing about this. I called the chateau to set up a tour and was given this information...after I bought tickets to Geneva just to see the chateau.
