Château de Maintenon, Maintenon

#1 of 22 in Things to do in Eure-et-Loir
Castle Tourist Spot
Discover the 17th century apartments of Madame de Maintenon and the lavish rooms of the Sun King Louis XIV at Château de Maintenon. The main architectural features include the 13th-century keep, the bridge across the moat, and the corps de logis flanked by two round towers. Stroll to the far end of the formal French gardens to view the Vauban aqueduct built in 1685 to supply the fountains at the Palace of Versailles. The haphazard and varied heights of the towers, spires, and steeples create an emblematic character reminiscent of an old town or abbey.

  • Passionate about the time of Louis XIV, it is naturally that I wanted to visited the Château de Maintenon. I have not been disappointed! It's a beautiful castle, tracing the history of Madame de Maintenon and the Noailles later. Special mention to the "King Louis XIV Salon" formerly "Room of the King," which is just gorgeous! We continued the tour in the garden directed by ours, which is just beautiful, until the aqueduct! A very informative visit in a beautiful setting!

  • This is a beautiful castle, a smaller scaled castle than the big name ones which makes the visit very intimate....
  • Amazing place you can visit everywhere. My favorite spot the garden lovely. We went on Sunday they had a small tent inside selling crepes for 1euro really good, outdoor music. It was really nice spend a day there ... I will like to go back in summer .
  • Awesome place, April tulips are beautiful
  • Not too bad a place to visit. The Chateau is in a good state of repair and the grounds are excellent. It would have got one star more if it was slightly larger or slightly cheaper.
  • Mantenon Castle, reachable by car, really nice place when I visited cerano of figures that entertained visitors in the various areas of the Castle, dressed as a time. Stately gardens with roses in bloom. Beautiful, beautiful! To visit
