We have visited the château several times, and always found something new. As a stately home, it is something like a National Trust property set in the French countryside. For those interested in 17th century military architecture, and for those who have seen Vauban's fortifications...More

We visited here late one sunny afternoon and were pleasantly surprised. The driveway to the chateau was a tree lined hill with a small car park and you then walked up to the entrance. We paid a small fee (discounted when we produced our ticket...More

We went late afternoon (arrived around 5pm) so pretty much had the place to ourselves. A magnificent chateau, especially as it's still lived in, and by direct descendants of Vauban. The furnishings, layout and displays are extraordinary and the cleanliness amazing. The written guide in...More

I think this is how the most children imagine a real castle to look. I can already recommend just to see this beautiful castle in real. Tourists can visit only a small part of the castle which is a bit of a let down since...More

The rooms available to view were very nicely restored. You do a self guided tour, with English handout which is quite interesting. We would have loved to see more of the living spaces, such as the kitchens. Lovely view from the terrace over the local...More

We were blessed with a sunny afternoon in late March to visit the "home " of Vauban. The information document in perfect English made the visit informative. The château is superbly maintained and the staff welcoming and well-informed. A definite "must" in this gorgeous part...More

Chateau de Bazoches is dripping with history. Home of Marshall Vauban, the chief military engineer to Louis XIV, it contains documents and stories related to the great man as well as the saga of the chateau itself. The grounds are beautiful and the views into...More
