Pomanders, beauty spot boxes, toiletries, antique bathtubs, perfume cabinets, miniatures... The Château de Chamerolles will immerse you in the history of perfume and hygiene over the centuries, up to the rapid development of current marketing campaigns and fine-cut perfume bottles. Rising up at the heart of a green setting, its towers overlook a Renaissance garden, made up of six flower beds created in the late 16th century by Lancelot II du Lac upon returning from Italy. On the other side, opposite the lake, the Grande Halle de Chamerolles emerges behind the trees. Entirely refurbished, it is captivating for both the quality of its exhibitions and the beauty of its roof structure, considered as one of the most impressive in the region.


Visitors can access the Renaissance garden via a culvert which spans the château moat. Created by Lancelot II du Lac after a trip to Italy in the late 16th century, it now has a general layout in accordance with the canons of the era, after experiencing a long period of abandon. An 18th century drawing preserved in National Archives effectively led to the restructuring of the garden. The drawing is made up of 6 flower beds bordered on 3 sides by 2 large archways covered with honeysuckle, rose bushes, vines and hops and an avenue of arbours. Two square vegetable gardens bordered by fruit trees have also been reconstructed. Finally, a 2-hectare landscaped garden redesigned for visitors' pleasure opens up at the south wing of the château. The Grande Halle was opened in 2009.
