Château de Montpoupon: soak up the warmth of château life

Château de Montpoupon: soak up the warmth of château life © Château de Montpoupon

Nestled in its one-of-a-kind natural setting, Château de Montpoupon has belonged to the La Motte Saint Pierre family since 1857. Step inside and soak up the family’s memories, passions and the warmth of château life.

An audio commentary (in French) in each of the Château’s furnished rooms introduces the history of Montpoupon from Charlemagne’s day with the Poppo clan to the present day.

The visitor journey continues in the Château’s outbuildings where visitors can experience the owners’ passions with exhibitions showcasing the world of horses, hunting and related crafts; art with countless paintings, watercolours and Hermès scarves.

Last but not least, the woodland path in the grounds gives visitors the chance to unwind and take in the Domaine de Montpoupon’s leafy setting.

There are also themed guided tours (in French) available throughout the 2016 cultural season for visitors to explore rooms which aren’t open to the general public (schedule to be confirmed).

The big news for 2016 is the opening of the La Motte Saint Pierre family’s Private Apartments to the public. The three recently restored rooms enable visitors to soak up family life, relive their memories and truly understand how château life has worked since 19thcentury.
