Chateau de Montgeoffroy, Maine et Loire

(4.2/5 based on 45+ 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.

  • Liked the place which we approach little by little since the road and parking. Welcomed by the locals which explain their Castle... THE kitchen is very nice... We want to sit down!

  • The castle is still inhabited, well maintained. Surrounded by a beautiful park, it contains a nice collection of antique furniture from several eras. The Park invites to walk when the weather permits. Very good host! The third Sunday of July, a firework is fired from the lawn in front of the Castle.

  • Arrived around 12:00 visit this castle and because of the time that we were there, we were able to take advantage of the guided tour for us alone. Guide friendly and who knows his subject. Beautiful stables, beautiful kitchen from the old Castle and still in operation for owners, nice and large park with animals and games for children. Visit to the ground floor in the Castle preserved from the Revolution. Full period furniture, still serving to the family dining room. Beautiful! Recommend!

  • 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!
