The castle of Louvois

the-castle-of-louvois

When the famous Louvois built the castle in 1662, this sumptuous dwelling was surrounded by a French-style park. The works were supervised by Michel Le Bouteux, a student of Le Nôtre. Between 1805 and 1812 it was destroyed except for the pavilion. It was partially rebuilt with material that had remained on the site. The hand-made iron gate at the entrance is known as one of the finest examples of old-style metal-work in France. No visit.
