Château de Champs-sur-Marne
A beautiful building from the Eighteenth century, the castle is reopening its doors.
Nestled in the heart of a small town struggling to maintain its identity in the face of the nearby sprawling Marne-la-Vallée, the place remained very discrete for a long time, almost even a secret. However, its gray façade housed beautiful neoclassical rooms with pretty acoustic qualities.
A small festival of Baroque music was held there as well, with the harpsichord and instruments from that period. Then all was silent, or rather, there was a large crash followed by a long silence. Plagued by a nasty fungus, a ceiling collapsed one night in 2006. Studies followed before the restorers took action, causing for a complete rethinking of the building.
Brought back to safety standards, modernized, equipped with informative tablets, the Castle has recovered its splendor from the eighteenth century. From the rooms, walls, and painted ceilings, as well as the furniture and comfort items, you get the sense of a certain sweetness of life. The vast green park adjacent to the building shall also be rearranged, designed with the theme of the ancient games.
