Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Eure-et-Loir / Maintenon / Chateau de Maintenon
Discover the 17th century apartments of Madame de Maintenon and the lavish rooms of the Sun King Louis XIV at Chateau 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. Plan a Maintenon trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Chateau de Maintenon Reviews
Enjoyed this cute little castle and its history so visited again the next year. The building is obviously old and in need of repair, which I believe is happening now. The gArden and views from the cas... more »
Так получилось, что этот замок был первым в нашем маленьком путешествии по Франции. Приехали мы туда прямо из Парижа по пути в Шартр и первый пункт нашей поездки нас нисколько не разочаровал, скорее н... more »It so happened that this castle was the first in our little journey through France. We arrived there right from Paris on the way to Chartres and the first paragraph of our trip, we did not disappoint, rather a contrast-shaken and overwhelmed. You can slowly work around the Castle, and at the end of the Park to look at the old aqueduct. At the entrance is given a guide where the designated route, from whom you will receive the most complete view of the Castle and the Park. Highly recommend before visiting to read history, will be much more interesting.
Ce fut formidable Excellente aventure Avec sur des bénévoles Une virée dans le 17eme et 18eme siècle Que du bonheur more »It was great excellent adventure with volunteers on a trip in the 17th and 18th century that happiness
If you want to learn more about Louis 14 than just Versailles this is the place to see. Beautiful outsides with a French garden and fun animations along the year.
One of my favourite historical sites in the area. The house itself may not have much to show, but the view from the garden is simply perfect out over the water.
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 .
Beautiful grounds very interesting interior
