In the same way as for many castles in Sarthe the Montmirail Castle is open to visits. Our guide will carry you away throughout past eras.
Let yourself be guided on the steps of Princess of Conti, daughter of Louis XIV and Mlle de la Vallière, who restored this 15th century medieval fortress in the 18th century to convert it into an elegant dwelling including refined reception rooms with remarkable woodwork pannelings and Regency furniture.
Let yourself be narrated the attempted reconciliation meeting organised in 1169 between Henry II Plantagenêt, King of England, Louis VII The Young, King of France and Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.
The visit of the Castle starts with the two magnificent vaulted arms rooms followed by the 12 and 15th century dungeons located 15 meters underground which give evidence that justice was being held at Montmirail. Meet the Sieur de Boisvinet in his dungeon. Then on the upper level, you will be taken to the listed reception rooms named by the Princess de Conti from which you can overlook the park and beyond the countryside of the Perche Gouët
There your trip in the past will come to an end allowing you to again enjoy the unobstructed view on the old Perche-Gouët.
