Your experience

Description

Immerse yourself in Voltaire's spirit at the Château de Voltaire à Ferney, home of the famous writer for 20 years. See some of his own works, sculptures and art collections. Learn the story of this legendary man of many talents and discover a chapel, an orangery and beautiful gardens.

"Our wretched species is made so that those who walk the beaten path always throw stones at those who show a new path." - Words of wisdom from the man himself that you should consider as you make your own way through the Château de Voltaire

This is where the French writer, historian and philosopher Voltaire of the Enlightenment spent the last 20 years of his life.

Although Voltaire is best known for his literary skills, he was not afraid to get his hands dirty. Voltaire not only wrote about 6,000 letters, his Philosophical Dictionary, his treatise on tolerance, and several tragedies, but completely rebuilt the castle from 1758! He designed the site himself, transforming the whole city of Ferney in the process.

As an urban planner and patron of the arts, Voltaire's busy social and literary life was represented here by dramatic works and a host of distinguished guests from all over Europe. Don't miss the gardens, which still have original 19th century elements such as the orangery, the gatehouse and the chapel!
