The present-day Château de La Motte-Tilly was built in the 18th century by the Abbot Joseph Terray, the future Controller General of Finances of Louis XV, as a summer resort, a place for holidays and rest!

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 (only in French).

To experience an unforgettable moment, it is entirely possible to privatize the castle to organize your events or book a personalized visit.
