Rendez-vous at the Château of Oiron Château d'Oiron 79100 Oiron fr

This unique château houses a marvellous collection of art and curiosities

Discover Oiron Chateau, built from the 16th century onwards on the border of the Poitou and the Loire Valley regions, and its contemporary collection of Curios & Mirabilia, freely inspired by the idea of a cabinet of curiosities in reference to the fabulous art collection of Claude Gouffier, Grand Squire to Henri II.  The sumptuous decorations and an exceptional gallery of Renaissance paintings in the style of the Fontainebleau school are complemented by fine, carved and painted panelling.

The Château d'Oiron is now home to Curios and Mirabilia, a remarkable collection of contemporary art and curiosities.
