Reopening of the Champs-sur-Marne Castle

An icon of French elegance, the Champs-sur-Marne Castle testifies for the marvellous taste of the Enlightenment century. It’s a must!

From Saturday 29 June 2013 to Thursday 25 May 2017

Château et domaine national de Champs

Closed since 2006, the Champs-sur-Marne Castle changed its looks and is ready for visits! This great and elegant construction dates back to the 18th century and is due to the architects Pierre Bullet and Jean-Baptiste Bullet of Chamblain. Built for two bankers, it welcomes especially the Marquise of Pompadour, who will stay here for two years.

After having had many owners, the domain was purchased at the end of the 19th century by the Count Louis Cahen d’Anvers – art collector and banker – who offers it an expensive restoration in the spirit of the 18th century.

The itinerary testifies for the new art of living appeared during this period. Bathrooms, wardrobes and dining-rooms are created, offering a sense of unprecedented comfort.

While walking along the Castle, sumptuous settings succeed one after another. Chinese salons, grand salon, smoking room, boudoir or rooms, decorated with furniture signed by renowned cabinetmakers, can be discovered before entering the park, which combines French gardens and English gardens with style and refinement.
