THE RESIDENCES of Mme de Pompadour


The Auvilliers Castle (map)

It is situated south of Artenay on the road to Menars.
For this reason Madame de Pompadour acquires the castle in March 1761.

Two round towers, with simple decorations, border the main part. This is but an intermediary stage.

In the bedrooms we can see modern furniture made of mahogany wood and a decoration that follows the Indian style.
Madame de Pompadour leaves the castle in 1763, still keeping the usufruct.
