The poetic place
to contemplate
and to move

The Château de Frileuse was first mentioned in the 17th century and was rebuilt in its present form around 1850 by the then lord of the castle and governor of Martinique Admiral Antoine Marie Ferdinand de Maussion de Candé (* 10th March 1801, † 21st January 1867).

Immerse yourself in history in this magnificent château in the heart of the Loire Valley and the Cheverny wine region.

Majestic windows, a magnificent terrace and a park take guests back to 1850, when the Château de Frileuse was transformed into one of the most modern castles in the area by its then owner.

Each room at the Château is individually furnished, with a mix of authentic period furniture and modern interiors. A visit to the legendary castles of the Loire and the wineries could begin right here.
