Welcome

An amazing Renaissance palace on the lands of the Dukes of Burgundy.
The biggest collection of Renaissance murals in France make Ancy-le-Franc a direct contender of the Fontainebleau chateau.

The chateau is the masterpiece of the famous Italian architect Sébastiano Serlio, master of symmetry and of 16th century architecture, who was summoned to the French court by François I.

The Chateau of Ancy-le-Franc is a Renaissance jewel, set in the centre of a large park in Burgundy, on the banks of the canal and only a few hours from Paris. The immense quadrilateral, which is a classified historic monument holds a rich decor attributed to some of the most celebrated Italian, Flemish and Burgundy artists of the 16th and 17th century.
Since July 1999 a team of experts have dedicated themselves to a detailed survey of the inventory and condition of the building to prepare for an exceptional restoration, that will be worthy of the special character of the Palace of Ancy-le-Franc.
