Allow yourself be guided in the steps of the Princess of Conti, daughter of Louis XIV and Mlle de La Vallière, who during the eighteenth century restored this fifteenth century medieval fortress and transformed it into an elegant dwelling replete with refined drawing rooms that boast remarkable woodwork and Régence furniture.
You will hear the tale of the attempted reconciliation organised in 1169 by the King of France Louis VII le Jeune, between Henri II Plantagenêt, King of England and Thomas Becket, archbishop of Canterbury.
The visit invariably begins in the two magnificent arched arms rooms, followed by the twelfth and fifteenth century dungeons located a mere fifteen metres underground, which attest to the fact that justice was served at Montmirail. Upon returning to daylight, you will visit the eighteenth century building and the heritage drawing rooms of the Princess of Conti offering large openings onto the park, where the visitors’ time travel will come to an end after enjoying a breathtaking view of old Perche-Gouët.
