The Château d'Augerville is a historic château, situated in the commune of Augerville-la-Rivière, Loiret, France. It is a monument historique, a national heritage site of France.
EarlyThe site is first mentioned during the twelfth century as Augerville, then a hamlet, in a charter from 1119. From 1207 onwards, Augerville was a stronghold for Philip Augerville and his son Louis. There they built a château fort flanked by a pigeonnier. Louis Augerville died in 1248 without an heir, so the estate went to brothers Pierre and Dreux de Beaumont.
During the Hundred Years War, the son of Pierre de Beaumont, Jean de Beaumont, sided with the English. He was sentenced to death by the provost of Paris and was executed on September 6, 1367. His property was confiscated, but later returned to his widow, Jeanne de Courtenay. She died without any children, so a nearby branch of the family took Augerville in 1403, in the person of another Jean de Beaumont. At his death, his brother Pierre de Beaumont inherited the castle, but had to flee an English occupation. His lands were redistributed by the occupying English to French supporters of Henry VI of England.
The château fort was a ruin by the time it was purchased by Jacques Cœur, a merchant and major financier of King Charles VII, in 1452. Cœur had little time to enjoy the property, as he was put on trial for royal embezzlement and sentenced to exile, where he died in 1456. All of his property was confiscated by the crown.

  • We traveled to France for the Ryder Cup tournament, and stayed at a hotel in Paris during the four days of the tournament. After the hustle and bustle of the city, and crowds at tournament, we wanted something quiet, in a country setting,yet not too far from Paris. We would be flying out of Paris at the end of the trip and wanted to spend maximum time relaxing, minimum time driving. We were very happy with everything at Chaateau d'Augerville - the accommodation (suite room) and beautiful setting in this historic chateau set in the wooded property. Very peaceful. We enjoyed the golfing, the spa (hydrotherapy facility was excellent), the gastronomic restaurant, and the lovely breakfast buffet. The whole experience was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. It was a good value for the money, especially after having been in Paris central where hotels are quite expensive. Special recognition to Faris who checked us in on arrival and looked after us, helping with arrangements, etc. He made us feel especially welcome. Had we gone to Chateau d'Augerville first, we probably would have made it our home base for the entire time, and just taken a couple day trips into Paris. If I were to make one small recommendation, the shower needs a place to set soap or shampoo bottles. Without a ledge or shelf the only option is to place items on the floor, which tended to fill up with standing water very quickly. But that was just a small thing. Otherwise the bathroom was beautiful and very comfortable.
