Photographer's Note

The construction of the château began in the 12th and ended roughly in the 18th century. In the early 16th century it was purchased by Louis XII's treasurer Jean Cottereau, who transformed the château-fort into a country house. In the 17th century it was rebuilt for Madame de Maintenon, who purchased the estate in 1675.

L'histoire du château de Maintenon remonte au Moyen Age, comme en témoigne sa tour carrée du XIIème siècle. Parmi ses propriétaires, figure Françoise d'Aubigné, future marquise de Maintenon, qui a acheté le domaine en 1674.
