Chateau de Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas' House, Le Port-Marly

4.2
#3 of 17 in Museums in Yvelines
History Museum Museum
Built in 1846 by the architect Hippolyte Durand, Chateau de Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas' House is the country house of the writer Alexandre Dumas, père. Dumas named the chateau after one of his most successful novels: The Count of Monte Cristo. During your visit, you can see sculptures on either side of the building, and unique items decorate the interior. The writer had portraits of historic playwrights placed above each ground floor window, but pride of place goes to Dumas himself, who still greets you from above the entrance. Durand’s writing studio is also on the grounds.

The entire property is operated as a public historic museum memorializing Dumas, père. See Chateau de Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas' House and all Le Port-Marly has to offer by arranging your trip with our Le Port-Marly itinerary planner.
