Build in 1620, for Simon II de Pouilly, Military Governor of Stenay, in his capacity as representative of the Duchy of Lorraine, build on a vantage point over the Loison valley, this is one of the biggest Renaissance castles in the Lorraine region. It is said that Louis XIV stayed here during the siege of Montmédy in 1657.
The most interesting of its architectural features are its imaginatively-carved doorways and porches and its impressive dovecote. Visitors are taken round by the castle’s caretaker, who shows them the two courtyards, the dovecote, the park and the chapel. Allow 45 mins for the visit.
