Garden · Castle
Although this 18th century historic monument is still home to the Vendeuvre family, you are welcome to visit Chateau de Vendeuvre. This site is sure to give you a glimpse of enchanting history and culture. Inside the castle, discover life in the 18th century thanks to a series of moving subjects. In the basement, the kitchens bear witness to day-to-day life.

The orangery houses a miniature furniture museum--the world's very first collection. An exhibition of 17th to 19th century dog kennels is also present, and in the gardens, you will find unique, relaxing fountains. Don’t forget to look for the shell-lined grotto, charming pavilions, and follies as well!

  • A beautiful chateau but gardens are poorly kept and in need of a lot of work. The water features in the garden give it a unique feel it just needs better maintenance. House tour is only on ground floor but is well stocked with period furniture.
  • Must see if you are in Normandie even for the kids. They will love the "water" garden. Take 3 to 4 hours for the visit.
