The Centre des Monuments Nationaux – managing Château de Champs-sur-Marne among others in Île-de-France – has announced the castle is to reopen! History fans can go there from May 19, 2021 to admire Château de Champs-sur-Marne and its parks, and find out everything they need to know about the history of this place now housing the Laboratoire de recherche des Monuments historiques [the Laboratory for Historical Building Research].
Built in 1708 Charles Renouard de La Touanne and Paul Poisson de Bourvallais’s request (both of them were Louis XIV’s financial advisers), the castle displays magnificent rococo decors, as well as chinoiseries painted in the middle of the 18th century by Christophe Huet. All around, 85-hectare gardens leading to the Marne, thanks to a 900-meter path paced with thickets, pools, sculptures, and more natural and wild areas. A wonderful place visitors can discover – or rediscover.
As for health guidelines, note facemask-wearing is compulsory and booking is highly recommended. Visitors must comply with social distancing within the castle. The tour has also been adapted to the situation to prevent running into as fewer people as possible, and the number of visitors has been limited as well.
And for all those who would like to find out more about the French heritage, discover the Pass Monuments enabling you to access many sites in France and around!
