A place steeped in history, having welcomed such illustrious figures as the Marquise de Pompadour and the Duc de La Vallière, the Château de Champs-sur-Marne is today one of France's heritage gems open to the public.

In the Seine-et-Marne département, the Château de Champs-sur-Marne is less well known than Vaux-le-Vicomte or Fontainebleau. A testament to its rich history, Champs-sur-Marne is best known for its vast 85-hectare wooded park, which is open all year round! [Read more]

Built between 1703 and 1708 by Jean-Baptiste Bullet de Chamblain for financier Paul Poisson de Bourvallais, the Château de Champs-sur-Marne is a model of French classical architecture of the period. With its elegant facades, elaborate roofs and richly decorated interior, it reflects the excellence of 18th-century French taste. The château has had several owners, each adding their own personal touch to the interior decoration, resulting in a harmonious blend of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI styles.

The château's gardens are not to be outdone. Designed by the famous landscape gardener Claude Desgots, grand-nephew of Le Nôtre, they are an invitation to stroll and relax. Faithfully restored according to the original plans, they offer a diversity of landscapes, combining the geometric order of the French parterres with the freer aspect of the English gardens added in the 19th century. These green spaces are a privileged place for nature and history lovers, offering a bucolic break close to the capital.

In addition to its architecture and gardens, the Château de Champs-sur-Marne is also distinguished by its rich furnishings and numerous works of art. The Nuit des Musées is the perfect opportunity to admire period furniture, paintings and tapestries that tell the story of the daily life and aesthetic tastes of its illustrious inhabitants. The château regularly organizes temporary exhibitions, concerts and cultural events, making it a lively and animated venue all year round.
