Variable openings according to the castles
The park of the Château de Sigy
The Château de Sigy was built during the Hundred Years’ War and remodelled in the 17th and 19th centuries. It is built on stilts and surrounded by wide moats over 35 metres-wide in some places.
The old Renaissance-era structure of the geometrically shaped park was a conquest of the gloomy marshlands at the bottom of the Valley of Auxence. The marsh’s shrubby vegetation was repulsed by large moats and as many flower beds.
In the 19th century, Marc de Haut, the Marquis of Sigy, did important work. He had the farmhouse rebuilt 300 meters from the castle and demolished the interior of the lower courtyard located in the enclosure.
He also undertook a transformation of the surrounding area into an English-style park. The vineyard was replanted there. The long walkway was replaced by a horseshoe-shaped walkway and many trees were planted to demarcate the meadow facing the castle. Purple beech trees, American oaks and a bald cypress continue to bear witness to this era.

Le Château de La Motte-Tilly
The guided tour of Château de La Motte-Tilly shares that it was built in the 18th century.
Classified as a Historical Monument in 1946 and serving a private residence until 1972, the chateau was bequeathed to the Centre des
Monuments Nationaux following the death of the Marquise de Maillé, the last owner, without an heir.
The condition was that it should be kept as it was and that « the visitor should feel a sense of presence ».
As you pass through the various decorated and furnished rooms and the wooded park that has witnessed the evolution of the gardens of great houses, you’ll discover the true life of the Chateau!
The Amis du Château de la Motte-Tilly association regularly hosts concerts in the Orangerie or specific rooms. See their latest news on their website.
