Château des Rochers Sévigné

Description :

Les Rochers was the estate of the Mathefelon family from the 12th century, before being passed by marriage to the Sévi-gné family in 1410. The family rebuilt the château in the early 16th century. Between 1644 and 1690, Madame de Sévigné stayed here and refurnished the house. She gave names to the paths through the gardens and in 1689 her son commis-sioned the French Gardens from Le Nôtre. In 1715, the Nétumières family bought the estate and carried out building and restoration works. Visitor centre at the 17th century Orangerie: Exhibition about Madame de Sévigné and the Château des Rochers.
