Located in the heart of the valley Juine, Méréville appears as an oasis of greenery in the Beauce plain.

Historic Village:

Put the edge of the plateau Beauceron, a large area of nearly 3000 hectares, combines Méréville plains between high culture and the lush valley. She suffered a turbulent history since the Roman occupation in the 4th century.

Its castle destroyed, rebuilt, razed, rebuilt, was also the eighteenth century a stay during which peace, Arts and Letters have flourished. This domain bought on the eve of the Revolution by the wealthy financier Jean-Joseph de Laborde was beautifully transformed. The expanded park became a romantic garden style, designed by the architect François-Joseph Bélanger and directed by the painter Hubert Robert. Planted with a variety of botanical species, reported its shipments by La Perouse, he was regarded by his contemporaries as the finest and most accomplished romantic gardens with its many factories and artificial caves.
