The château of the Bourg Saint-Léonard and its beautiful garden in the english landscape fashion is surrounded by a 400-hectare forest. Its neoclassical architecture fits in elegantly to this magnificent green setting.
The Cromot family led a busy social life in the château of the Bourg Saint-Léonard. Among the many receptions held there, they organized a celebration in honour of Marie-Antoinette and they welcomed the poet Florian. The guided tour will take you to the rooms destined to receive fine society, the dining room, the living rooms, and you will also see furniture that lends itself to conversation.
Baron Jules-David de Cromot built this chateau in the 18th century. It is a typical example of a domain owned by a courtier in the countryside, its architecture and furniture being a perfect example of the architectural trend of the Age of Enlightenment.
Have a chat in the queen's chairs, put your bottles in the cooler, play tric-trac, sleep in the "bergères"... You will be introduced to the fancy furniture necessary to the chateau-life.
