Chateau de Montgeoffroy, Maine et Loire

4.5
#15 of 25 in Historic Sites in Maine et Loire
Castle Tourist Spot
Chateau de Montgeoffroy is a phenomenal retirement getaway; at least, that’s what Louis Georges Erasme de Contades, then governor of Alsace, thought when he rebuilt the house in 1772. The entire estate--including furnishings and outlying structures--miraculously survived the French Revolution. This allowed historian Pierre Verlet to study pre-revolutionary French life through its archives and collections. On entering the château, cross an expansive lawn where 18th-century marquis and marquises once exchanged bon mots and fan waves. The front entrance embraces you with its traditional U-shaped layout. Inside, the rooms charm with the pastel hues and gilding that signify this bygone era in French history. Make Chateau de Montgeoffroy part of your personalized Saint-Mathurin-sur-Loire itinerary using our Saint-Mathurin-sur-Loire travel itinerary planner.

  • A very pleasant surprise, it's a castle which deserves to be better known and well worth a visit. A remarkable era furniture, pieces in an exceptional condition, to see at any price the House of the priest in a remarkable condition!

  • It's a very beautiful castle, we had a visit private upstairs was great, we visited each room corners and details of parts, we were there. We were received as if we were invited as guests to the days of glory of the Castle. We recommend without hesitation the visit and the supplement to the floor.

  • Great people working there
  • Not very busy place. The parking lot is right next to the Castle, it is not necessary to worry about to enter the gate of the complex. Inside I was not but the castle is open to the public. The gardens are the place to them is only a grassed area.

  • Magnificent 18th century castle which has retained most of its original furniture. It is very rare to find a site that has been preserved during the French Revolution and still belongs to the same family for several centuries. The tours of the Castle are all guided and very interesting, you learn a lot about this period. The Park is splendid, embellished by a mini-farm that presents us with a few endearing species as llamas, kune kune pigs and a nice backyard. Castle must see!
