A testament to several centuries of architecture, the Montmirail Castle will first take you aback by its excellent state of upkeep, which is due to the fact that in addition to having been the dwelling of Princess of Conti and major historical figures staying there, the castle has been lived in throughout the last near-three centuries by descendants of the same family: that of the Marquis of Neuilly, to whom the Princess of Conti sold the castle in 1719.
Thus, the castle has regularly been renovated by each generation of owners who successively lived there, with each bringing their own personal touch in keeping with the fashion of their era. This blend of styles defines the castle’s originality, as do the twelfth century underground arms rooms and dungeons – remnants from the Middle Ages of yesteryear’s castles built on the original castle mound – which extend over three floors and constitute a rare feature nowadays.
