“Rare XVIII century gem of a castle”
Reviewed 19 August 2011

Montgeoffroy was built late in the XVIIIth century for the most part (it does have some more ancient segments too).
What makes it most unusual is that it was not damaged or altered later on and that it retains virtually all of its original and custom made furnishings and decorations. It is set in a pleasant park and the visit includes the kitchen chapel and a collection of horse carriages.
It would be nice if the visit included some of the upstairs rooms which might be quite interesting too.
Altogether it is a beautiful glimpse at the period just before the Revolution.
On a practical level it would be good to have toilets accessible while waiting for the guided visit.For now you have to inquire about them right at the start of the visit or you are out of luck.
