Petit Futé's opinion on CHATEAU DE CHAMEROLLES

Plate millesim 2022

This splendid 16th century castle, with round towers and pointed roofs, is one of the most visited in the department. Built by Lancelot du Lac (first of the name, named after the legendary knight of the Round Table), companion of Louis XII and governor of Orléans, the castle became a Protestant fiefdom through the family's alliance with Louise de Coligny, hence the transformation of the chapel into a temple. The last owners donated the castle to the City of Paris, which bequeathed it to the Loiret department in 1987. Ancestral techniques were used for the complete restoration of the building. Now called the "Château des Parfums", it presents the history of hygiene and scents from the 16th century to the present day. On the scent panels, simply press a button and bring your nose close to discover unusual scents and olfactory tastes of each era, including the very famous Eau de la Reine de Hongrie. The charming Renaissance garden offers a pleasant place of relaxation and discovery for children and adults alike, thanks to its beautiful flower beds, furniture and labyrinth. New: with the Géomotifs application, it is possible to discover the small hidden details of the castle. For each shape found, explanations are given on the meaning of the motif. During the school holidays, creative workshops and special game books are offered to children. Don't miss "The Secret Word" in the summer, which is very popular with families.

Très joli château et jardins
Joli château à taille humaine et très agréable jardin. Ici on entre dans le parcours des parfums. De beaux papiers peints et tentures bien restaurées permettent d'imaginer ce que pouvait être la vie de l'époque. Des meubles intéressants qui retracent la vie au fil des années.
Le jardin est joli et paisible. La visite est intéressante loin de la foule et parking gratuit à proximité.

Petit château situé dans le Loiret et magnifique jardin (fleurs et potagers). On appelle également cet endroit "le château des parfums". Visité guidée, très bien expliqué et guide à disposition.
