Our history

Pass through the imposing wrought iron gate and you enter the world of the Château de Cormicy…

This architectural marvel with its sober and elegant curves was rebuilt at the beginning of the 20th century. The Château overlooks a magnificent wooded park of 1 hectare which provides changing atmospheres throughout the seasons. There is no better place for a romantic stroll before the festivities.

To spend a few days at the Château de Cormicy is also to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of a warm and intimate residence. The Château is getting a new look in 2020, with a new style revisiting the past thanks to the cheerfulness of contemporary materials and colors. The mix of atmospheres between the different buildings is daring. It stands out brilliantly from the classicism of traditional castles.

The Story

The life of the castle of Cormicy is not a long quiet river. Destroyed several times, the castle was rebuilt and transformed over the centuries. Three dates are inscribed on the building. The first construction of the castle dates from the 12th century. It was destroyed and rebuilt a first time in the 17th century. The existing castle was rebuilt after the First World War in 1925.

Some remains of the first buildings still exist today, such as the 13-meter deep underground tunnels dating back to the Middle Ages. In these underground passages, several inscriptions testify to the centuries of life in these galleries.

After having been the property of the archbishopric of Rheims, the Count Guillaume de Champagne acquired it after the First World War.
