Château de Monte-Cristo
The Château de Monte-Cristo was thought up by Alexandre Dumas. Built between 1844 and 1846 at Port-Marly, it was built in the centre of a huge garden landscaped in the English style with a grotto, rockery and waterfalls. This elegant residence with façades covered in sculptures houses a genuine Moorish reception room, an architectural masterpiece restored owing to the patronage of King Hassan II of Morocco.
Opposite the Château of Monte-Cristo is the Château d’If, a delightful Neo-Gothic house which Dumas used as his study.
A journey in the footsteps of Alexandre Dumas!
