Chateau de Montgeoffroy, Maine et Loire
(4.1/5 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.

  • The castle is located near the town of Angers and is despite the revolution since the construction of family-owned. It can be visited only with leadership. The guide was in French with English additions, but there was a fairly extensive portfolio with information on german. The decor is original and this gives quite good insight in the time. A part cannot be visited because it is used by the family. The Park is nothing special, the highlights are a few llamas and other animals.

  • 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!
