This room is named after the Marquis Melchior de Vogüé, the grandfather of the current owner, Count Béraud de Vogüé. After converting the whole of the first floor into apartments, he settled into this room and his, born Geneviève Brincard, used the adjoining bedroom.

In 1930, he also restored the frescos in the Chapel.

In 1955, he abandoned all family and professional activities in order to enter religious life. His wife did likewise. He was ordained a priest in 1961 at the Monastère de La Pierre Qui Vire. His wife, who became a Benedictine nun at the Monastère de Limon, is buried at his side at La Pierre Qui Vire.

His son, Count Antoine de Vogüé, took over at La Verrerie.

He was closely involved in the economic and cultural development of the region. In addition to his many political duties – he was, among others, mayor, departmental councillor and president of a number of unions – and his contributions to local tourism (including the Route Jacques Cœur and Noirlac), he opened the first-floor rooms of the north wing to the public. These were rooms that had been built in 1890 by his grandfather, Marquis Louis de Vogüé.

If you wish, you can visit them on a guided tour.

His wife, Countess Antoine de Vogüé, after having founded the Auberge ‘La Maison d’Hélène’ in the grounds of the Château in 1979, opened the first guest rooms in 1982.

In 1993, their son, together with his wife, born Diane Paul Boncour, took over at La Verrerie. Count and Countess Antoine de Vogüé settled into the Gros Chêne, a former land manager’s house located in the grounds of the Château. The Countess now lives there alone, since the death of her husband in 1998.

We wish you an enjoyable stay and will do our utmost to ensure that you will have fond memories of the Château de La Verrerie.
