Château de Dampierre

Local nameChâteau de Dampierre
LocationDampierre-en-Yvelines, France

The Château de Dampierre is a castle in Dampierre-en-Yvelines, in the Vallée de Chevreuse, France.

Built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in 1675–1683 for the duc de Chevreuse, Colbert's son-in-law, it is a French Baroque château of medium size. Protected behind fine wrought iron double gates, the main block and its outbuildings, linked by balustrades, are ranged symmetrically around a dry paved and gravelled cour d'honneur. Behind, the central axis is extended between the former parterres, now mown hay. The park with formally shaped water was laid out by André Le Nôtre. There are sumptuous interiors. The small scale makes it easier to compare it to the approximately contemporary Het Loo, for William III of Orange.
