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!

  • Beautiful little castle and gardens but PLEASE FREE the poor pheasants and peacoks kept in tiny cages !!!!! This is animal cruelty to me, the birds look so depressed. This is a very negative point...

  • Great afternoon, well worth the money. Loved the water gardens, but not as much as my 22 month old grandson, who had a fantastic time dashing INTO all the fountains 😂😂😂. Came home soaked but loved every second, much to tge amusement of the lady on reception. The miniatures are remarkable, such fantastic workmanship. Would definately recommend a visit
  • Great garden and walking around with full of beautiful scenery to visit with friends and family.
