History of Epoisses castle

Classified as a historical monument, the Epoisses castle is located in the center of Burgundy, in a beautiful and rich plain that bears its name. Its history dates back to the 6th century. A veritable fortress, this medieval complex which was inhabited in turn by the Queen of the Franks, the Dukes of Burgundy, the Grand Condé and the Marquise de Sévigné, preserves the memory of each century both in its architecture and in its interior decorations, such as a true witness to the history of France. Owned by the same family since 1661, the family maintains the old house by continuing the conservation of this exceptional site, opening it to visitors, which has never before been so splendid.
