Château de Montgoger

Château de Montgoger

At the heart of the Loire Valley, 30 minutes from Tours, is the impressive estate of Château de Montgoger.  On 8 acres, beside a vast forest, stand two significant structures.  It is the contrast of these two structures that tells the colourful story of Montgoger. It is a history that stretches back 850 years. One is the ruin of the chateau, made thus after a devastating fire in 1943 which rendered the historic chateau unliveable. This was the second time a fire had taken the chateau as the ancient castle had burned down in 1885!  The 18th century orangerie is an elegant conversion that accommodates 30 and hosts receptions up to 100 people. Holidays in the chateau can be as slow or active as you choose. Cycling, hiking, walking, exploring historic castles and wine tasting are all possible in this rich region.

Discover the property of Château de Montgoger

The chateau is set in a 17-hectare park with centuries-old trees for a complete privacy. The property boasts private access to the adjoining 400-hectare forest, opening up many possibilities for long walks. The historical château was destroyed during a fire in the late nineteenth century. The stone ruins, overgrown with plants now, are a romantic relic quietly overlooking the lawn. As a result of the devastating fire in the 19th century, the orangery was adapted for residential use. It is now the main house of the property. It measures 1,200 m², of which 1,000 m² are available for rent. There is also a swimming pool just a few steps down from a beautiful stone terrace.

Despite the greenery that has overtaken the turreted towers and the castle walls, a rich and long history unfolded here, mixing royal visits and hunting receptions, feats of arms and dramatic events. With a past extending its roots more than 850 years back, a succession of famous names in the History of Touraine (lords of Sainte-Maure to the Dukes of Choiseul through the Marquis of Beauvau), with lords places a captain of Du Guesclin and a steward of Finance, a bishop, a minister of Louis XV and an ambassador of France – but also the assassination of the Duke of Guise – not to mention the passages of Joan of Arc, Louis XI and Henry IV. The sumptuous castle was burned down in 1882. The Orangerie, built in 1768, was enlarged with a neo-Louis XV style extension between its two square pavilions and again in 1884 at its rear facade an additional wing in an Anglo Norman style. In the late 19th century the chateau underwent a partial renovation. During the Second World War it was occupied by the Germans and unfortunately, taken again by fire in 1943.
