👁️ AWAKENING : Château Perché is an awakening of the senses; it's about reaching a higher consciousness of the body and mind through immersive and interactive activities, debates, exhibits and performances.
🪄 BEST HUMAN : Be the best version of Yourself 💗
Do not judge others or yourself, don’t be offensive to others beliefs or sexual orientations and keep in mind that we are all HUMAN. Respect your own and others’ consent, physical and psychological integrity.
🐚 SAFEPLACE : The "safeplace" allows you to let go, it's a place where aggressions are banned, where consent is respected and where caring for each other is the norm. Be your best Human Being of all time and at all time!
🌱 ECOLOGY : We deeply encourage everyone to "bring their own cup" to avoid single use plastic. We will offer biodegradable soap and deploy a waste management brigade to guide the public through sorting their waste and recycling it.

About the CASTLE : The original castle was built by Jean de Saillenay in 1180, on the site of a Roman outpost guarding the road between Autun and the administrative centre of Gallia Lugdunensis, now Sens. The design was a standard trapezoidal layout, with four towers and a keep surrounding an inner courtyard, upgraded in the 14th century.
It was sold to Jean de Bazoches in 1284 and successively owned by the Chastellux, Montmorillon and La Perrière families. In 1570, Jacques Le Prestre de Vauban acquired it when he married Françoise de la Perrière, an illegitimate daughter of the Count de Bazoches.
In 1675, Jacques Le Prestre's grandson, the military engineer Vauban, purchased the property from his cousin with money awarded by Louis XIV for his role in the capture of Maastricht in 1673, and it was extensively upgraded.
Today it is private property and classified as a listed Historic building.
