Immersion in a historical château, at the heart of the National Park in the Perche

Immersion in a historical château, at the heart of the National Park in the Perche

In the landscaped Natural Park of the Perche, this 16th century castle, bordering the former Henri IV road, was the witness of historical episodes.

Crossed by the Sainte-Suzanne river, the city of Charbonnières showcases a proud white château of Troubadour architecture, a very popular Renaissance-Gothic style at the time. The legend recalls that Henri IV, recognizable thanks to his white panache, came here to hunt. Amongst its former owners, the archives also mention the names of Lafayette and the Duc de Richelieu.

The History of France, sheltered inside a château of the Perche region

Nobles of the robe or the sword lived in turn their hidden love affairs, or their moments of leisure, in this 32 hectare estate that inspired the Count of Chamois. Between Chartres and Le Mans, in the Eure-et-Loir department, it shelters stables, an orangery, a botanical hothouse and green forests.
