4 Cultural Visits Castle

4 Cultural Visits Castle of Monte-Cristo, Ile de France Alexandre Dumas built himself his dream home at the height of his glory in 1844. He had had huge success with his books the Three Musketeers and the Count of Monte Cristo and called his very extravagant home, a castle in fact, the Chateau de Monte Cristo. His study was in the neo-gothic style Chateau d’If next door. Dumas though was a party animal and instead of writing more best sellers, he lived it up and, riddled with debt in a few short years he had to sell it for much less than it cost to build and furnish. It’s a fascinating place to visit, as he called it “an earthly paradise.” Either take the Train from Gare Saint-/Lazare or RER line A to Marly Le Roi, then bus 10 to Lesamps and a short walk. Details: Moret-sur-Loing, Seine-et-Marne Ile de France Ranked among the most beautiful villages in France, Moret-sur-Loing has oodles of charm.
