Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Eure-et-Loir / Maintenon / Château de Maintenon
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.

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.

This is a beautiful castle, a smaller scaled castle than the big name ones which makes the visit very intimate....
