Chateau de Maintenon, 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.

  • We spent a little weekend getaway in this hotel not far from Paris (barely 2 hours drive) Home Professional room perfect, clean, bright and very cosy however the dressing to detection light don't s lights not at the right time but it is order of detail. The restaurant is good, the atmosphere is very subdued... The spa is very nice and functional. Breakfast was a treat. Thanks for the attention made in addition to our request. Hope to come back very quickly.

  • Very good, a great tour as well as a garden and beautiful landscape. The price is very affordable. A place where you learn more about the history.

  • A nice Castle, in a small village, with a really interesting story! The ticket price reasonable to 5.4 euro a quiet garden that inspires us accompanied by the music of the time. A nice family walk...

  • Lovely castle. Especially from outside. It is nice to have a stroll in the direction of viaduct.
  • This place is away from the main city. The country side atmosphere is great. The receptionist at the Chateau speaks English which was very helpful. The gardens were amazing!
  • The Fantastic Noël -over 800 volunteers to bring History alive!
  • 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.
