Attraction details
Owner description: The Pagoda, built in 1775, is a Chinese curiosity of pure Louis XVI style. Virtual reconstruction images show the splendour of the Duke of Choiseul’s palace, destroyed in 1823 by the “Black Band”. Quaint Chinese garden, its oriental plants and Chinese ornaments invite to meditate. Awe-inspiring panoramic view from the top of the Pagoda, “old-fashioned” outdoor games, boat ride on the ornamental lake.

“Worthwhile if you are in the neighborhood!”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

Much better than we had anticipated! The views from the Pagode are wonderful. The movie depicting the history of "Chanteloup" is a MUST see as this will give you an overview of the scope of "what once was". There is no more Chanteloup left but the grounds are well worth a visit. As someone said "worthwhile only if you are in the neighborhood". But then the MUST sees at Chateau Chenonceau and Chateau et Parc de Langeais put you in the neighborhood!

There is a children's play area with lots of 'old time' games that were very enjoyable for this adult!

“NOT another Chateaux (and very family-friendly)”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Liked- French country house, roses, oriental garden, large shaded area with seating for lunch & many inviting areas for picnics. Unique 18th century pagoda with relevant French history, boating pond (clean), and a large open area with "old fashioned" games for the young and young-at-heart to enjoy. Also, prepared lunch in a basket available for purchase (although we did not) and the cleanest rest room facilities we haven found since arriving in France (& that includes the Louvre!).
