The history of Domaine des Escaunes
The estate was, from the beginning in the 16th century, an inn / coaching inn where Francis I and his second wife Eleonore of Austria, Catherine de Medici and the future King Henri IV, and Louis XIII, accompanied by Cardinal Richelieu, lived.
In 1564, King Charles IX spent the night in his carriage parked in the courtyard. Michel de Nostredame, better known by his Latin name of Nostradamus, was, according to the chronicle, for a few days the host of the inn.
Over the centuries, the estate has known various destinations and served as a wine farm before being lovingly restored with respect for authenticity.
