Thoiry Mansion

Recommended
Built as a "solar house" by Raoul Moreau, treasurer of Henri II, this château boasts an exceptional location, looking out over the fields that stretch out before it for as far as the eye can see; it was therefore to play the part of solar instrument. Sunrise or sundown would take place within the axis of the façade. Today, the furniture of the château's different owners remains here, and there are guided tours in period costume.
