A history of welcome
Built at the beginning of the 17th century by the Counts of Anglure, the Chateau was a staging post for French monarchs whilst on progress to their eastern dominions.
Louis XIV, the Sun King, was astonished by the sparkling fountains you will see in the miniature lakes in the grounds of the Chateau.
The unfortunate Louis XVI also stayed here, the country seat of his First Gentleman of the Bedchamber, Claude de Chamilly, during his flight to Varennes in 1791.
Following the French Revolution, Etoges passed into the hands of the wife of Marshal Lannes who played hostess to the Court of the Emperor Napoleon.
Today, the family that has owned Etoges for over a century is delighted to continue the Chateau’s tradition of offering a royal welcome to honoured guests.
The village of Etoges, in past times an important posting-house, lies on the main road from Paris to Strasbourg. The tombs of the Lords of Etoges are to be found in the 12th century church, which was completed together with a fine Renaissance portal in the 15th and 16th centuries.
