Château d'Ancy-le-Franc

Recommended
This château on the banks of the River Armançon is one of Burgundy's finest residences. It was built for Antoine III de Clermont, Dauphiné's governor and husband of Anne-Françoise de Poitiers, in 1546, according to plans by Sebastiano Serlio. This Italian architect came to the court of François I and played a significant role in bringing the principles of Italian Renaissance architecture to France. The mural paintings have been beautifully restored.
