Castle of Louvois

Monument in Val de Livre

The castle of Louvois is located on the new town of Val de Livre, born from the recent merger of the villages of Louvois and Tauxières-Mutry, in the Marne, 23 km south of Reims.

At the heart of the famous mountain of Reims and its rich vineyards, a first castle was built in the thirteenth century, which was purchased in the seventeenth by Michel Le Tellier. Erected in marquisate, the estate surrounded by vineyards was then given to his son François Michel who had the castle rebuilt on plans Mansart, and a park and gardens on 50 hectares designed by a student of Le Nôtre. In the meantime, property of two daughters of Louis XV, Adelaide and Sophie, the estate was destroyed during the Revolution. The stones are mostly resold. Only the foundations, the entrance gate, the orangery, the ditches, and large pools (now classified) survive.

In 1826, Frédéric Gabriel Chandon de Briailles rebuilt a hunting lodge of classical architecture but the whole presents a noble aspect as a landscaped garden is also refurbished.

Home to a military hospital during the First World War, the site finds new life in 1989 when it was bought by Laurent Perrier champagne house. Part of the garden of the seventeenth century has been restored identically according to the original plans.

Reserved for receptions organized by society, the castle can not be visited. But we can admire all, from the outside, on the occasion of a hike on the mountain of Reims.
