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.

  • Contrary to some opinions, 'we were very well received by the lady who is at the reception and who in addition gave us a lot of explanations about the miniatures: what a wonderful collection! The discovery of the park was also much appreciated Very beautiful discovery

  • What a little gem, poorly publicised. Fabulous collection of miniature furniture. Chateau only accessible on first floor and cellar/kitchen but all info in English if required. High point, the gardens...  more »
  • A beautiful chateau but gardens are poorly kept and in need of a lot of work. The water features in the garden give it a unique feel it just needs better maintenance. House tour is only on ground floor but is well stocked with period furniture.
  • Must see if you are in Normandie even for the kids. They will love the "water" garden. Take 3 to 4 hours for the visit.
