Château of Rochambeau

Family owned since 1516. During the 18th century, Maréchal de Rochambeau, hero of the American War of Independence, modified the 16th century manor house, enlarging it in the style of his time. The chapel and the hemicycle were rebuilt in the mid 19th century following collapse of the hillside.
Description
The original site was built at the end of the 11th century, and another was certainly built on the banks of the Loir river in the 16th century. The Maréchal de Rochambeau, who made a name for himself in the American War of Indépendance, enlarged this structure and tranformed it in the 18th style. All commons are troglodytic. Following the collapse of the hill in 1841, neoclassical hemicycle was build with a chapel centered.
