Château des Montgommery
The chateau of Montgommery,
it’s quite a story …

The chateau of Ducey is located along the Selune river. Classified Historical Monument, it was built in the first twenty years of the 17th century under the reign of Henri IV, by Gabriel II of Montgommery, the son of the regicide.

Beautiful ceilings decorated with paintings, imposing fireplaces and a monumental staircase testify to an ambitious and innovative architectural project due to a powerful Protestant lord whose family has marked the history of France.
