Château d'Arlay

Back in the History...

Actual Castle has been erected in 1774 in place of the Minimes convent. This convent, previously built in 1650, was in a great state of decay when the Countess of Lauraguais, Princess of Isenghien and wealthy heiress of the Chalon-Arlay fortress, bought it. She decided to build a vast neo-classic -style castle, inspired by the works of Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, architect of the Royal Saltworks in Arc-et-Senans. She entrusted for this task a local architect, Rémy Léger, who kept nothing from the convent except its U shaped base and the cellars.

He added two outbuildings, one used as stables for the guests and the other one as private stables for the countess. In the location of the old cloister, he designed a courtyard, closed on three sides and opened, beyond a nice horseshoe shaped fountain, on the Romantic Garden. On the front wall of the castle, the windows are surrounded by ochre stones which are the last relics of the old Nozeroy Castle that the countess used to own. In the middle of the front wall, stands a balcony with columns providing a view on all Arlay village and Revermont mounts.
