Château de Maintenon, Maintenon
(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Château de Maintenon and discover more family-friendly attractions in Maintenon using our Maintenon itinerary builder.

  • This small castle is these gardens are worth visiting. The tour is interesting (with a guide or audio guide), and the ride in the lovely gardens (great view: on the castle on the one hand, on the aqueduct on the other). I highly recommend!

  • 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.
  • Beautiful! Small music in the gardens, superb. Visit!

  • Beautiful French garden. The castle is under renovation. The Interior is a bit disappointing... Some parts are not time, as the walls of staircases that give on the 1st floor... pity...
