You're invited to the Marquis' residence

Cormatin is graced by prestigious castles; a visit of this Renaissance masterpiece is truly enchanting. The Cormatin Chateau apartments display a mix of elegance and exuberance. The 17th-century "Gilded rooms" are stunning. Castle grounds combine attractive flower beds, manicured groves, a dizzying boxwood maze and an open-air theatre; the handsome row of lime trees on Lamartine's lane offers an ideal strolling destination. Everything's sublime.

They particularly liked:

  • the view overlooking the castle from an aviary on the grounds
  • the splendour of the Louis XIII-period apartments
  • philosophising over Nietzsche's quote at the entrance to the garden: "We want to have ourselves translated into stone and plant and go for a walk in ourselves"
  • strolling on the grounds, the groves, the vegetable garden.
