Château de Lantheuil - Creully sur Seulles

Chateau Louis XIII (17th century) built for Turgot and still belonging to the same family. Of sober and majestic construction it is nestled in the hollow of a wooded valley, it is reached by a long avenue of beeches tricentenaires. The plane trees surrounding the moat were planted at the construction of the castle and have never been cut, they are classified historical monuments. The Turgots gave France many servants of the state including Anne Robert Jacques Turgot, Marquis de l'Aulne. He was appointed in 1774 Controller General of Finance by King Louis XVI. A great economist and friend of philosophers, he leaves a considerable work and is considered as one of the main founders of the modern economy. The castle contains many souvenirs, paintings and period furniture as well as beautiful collections of the old regime, the Empire, until the 2nd World War. The castle was occupied by a contingent of 400 Germans. The visit is very rich in historical anecdotes.

The French gardens date from the end of the 18th century. They are arranged south of the castle along a Louis XIV balustrade. On the facade of the castle, we can see a sundial and a meridian dating from 1765, one giving the time and the other the month, seasons and signs of the zodiac. To the north, west of the avenue of honor, restitution and embellishment of the Italian garden is planned.
