Chateau de Montgeoffroy, Maine et Loire

Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Nice to see, many original features and fully furnished. The guided tour in French took a little long. You see but a number of rooms, wonder how the rest is.
