Château de la Huardière
45600 Sully-Sur-Loire, France
The graceful Louis XVI style castle, inspired by the Petit Trianon, was built in 1920 by Pagnon, a Parisian jeweler, who drew the plans himself. The current owner fell in love with this estate and the charms of the Loire Valley. Member of several international scientific and cultural associations, patron of major cultural events and cinematographers, she sets up large-scale projects that will take place within the framework of the castle. Among other things, the Château houses the Association for Knowledge of the Arts and Heritage of the Loire, as well as the archives of the author André Malraux.
