CASTLE

Château de Champs-sur-Marne

31 rue de Paris - 77420 Champs-sur-Marne 77 - Seine-et-Marne
Just 18 km East of Paris, at the heart of an 85 hectare park, is the Château de Champs-sur-Marne. Built in the 18th century, its illustrious occupants included the Dukes of La Vallière, the Duke of Lévis and the Marquise de Pompadour. In 1895, Louis Cahen d'Anvers, a great collector interested in the 18th century, asked the architect Destailleur to restore the chateau and called on Henri Duchêne for the park.
After 6 years of work to restore the decor and the collections, the chateau is once again open to the public this summer. The Chinese room, the smoking room, the monochrome boudoir ... each room is rich in furniture and decoration and can be discovered during a tour with the assistance of a tablet-pc.
The Château de Champs, a symbol of French elegance, set in a marvellous green environment, with harmoniously decorated rooms and collections designed by the most renowned craftsmen of the 18th century, displays an 'art de vivre', with pleasure and delight, where visitors are welcomed as special guests.
Amoung the guests, 80 film crews have discovered the exceptional decor of the chateau and its park. Among the films set here include: Swann in Love directed by Volker Schlöndorff (1984), Colonel Chabert by Yves Angelo (1994), L’Allée du Roi by Nina Companeez (1995), Ridicule by Patrice Leconte (1996), The Last Mitterrand by Robert Guédiguian (2004), Marie-Antoinette by Sofia Coppola (2006), and Jeanne Poisson, marquise de Pompadour by Robin Davis (2006).
