Château de Maintenon, Maintenon

(4.5/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • a big thank you to the volunteers who helped us discover this castle in the evening and life from Madame de Maintenon, through scenes with realism as we thought we were invited to the salon of King Louis the 14th and we're already dreaming of returning next year... in a wonderful scenery and a magical atmosphere... and surrounded by benevolence and the niceties of the same volunteers... congratulations!

  • We were pleasantly surprised by this show, which traces the life of Madam de Maitenon through living scenes. Amazing show if possible to do night for total immersion. Everything is provided by volunteers: Kudos to them. Not to be missed. .. Remember to book as soon as possible.

  • Great evening in the castle of Maintenon. The show is very good and we are pleased by their game with the volunteers. Views of the illuminated gardens, very nice concert of a foursome, the story of Madame de Maintenon repaired us simply, but with talent. Beautiful ballet around historical figures before leaving this place magical. Only the host's review because we don't know what to do.

  • 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...
