History of the monument

A poetic château. Cassandre, the daughter of the first owner, was the inspiration for Ronsard’s famous "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose ...", whilst her niece Diane was the muse of the young Agrippa d’Aubigné. One of the direct descendants of Cassandre’s daughter was Alfred de Musset. One of the last owners, Albert Stapfer, was the first French translator of the German poet Goethe.  
The Talcy Conference. The Catherine de' Medici and Charles IX rooms were where the Talcy Conference, the last meeting between Catholics and Protestants, took place in 1562.
