Guided tours

Guided tours

Castle is temporarily closed to visitors due to repairs. Potential reopening during summer 2022.
Until June 30, 2022, you can visit the castle and the park only by guided tours with an online reservation.

Explore history of the Château de Meillant and the different families who lived there. Relive evolution of the different styles of architecture typical to France.  With its chapel, enter the daily life of our ancestors on a guided tour lasting between 45 to 60 minutes.

 

The layout, decoration and furniture reflect the art of living and the constant search for aesthetics desired by the successive owners of the castle. We proudly mention the great living room, a remarkable interior of almost 200 square meters.  Particularity to this room is the gallery of musicians above the large fireplace. Of special note is the unique collection of tapestries from Bruges, the guest bedroom, the dining room upholstered in Cordoba leather, the guard room which houses life-size wooden deer, bearing the arms of prestigious hosts who have crossed paths in Meillant.
