Château de Sully
Château de Sully Review
"The Fontainebleau of Burgundy" was how Madame de Sévigné described this turreted Renaissance château, proclaiming the inner court, whose Italianate design was inspired by Sebastiano Serlio, as the latest in chic. The building is magnificent, landmarked by four lantern-top corner towers that loom over a romantic moat filled with the waters of the River Drée. Originally constructed by the de Rabutin family and once owned by Gaspard de Saulx-Tavannes—an instigator of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, August 24, 1572, in which mobs attacked Huguenots in and around Paris—the château was partly reconstructed in elegant Régence style in the 18th century. Maurice de MacMahon, the Irish-origin president of France from 1873 to 1879, was born here in 1808.
