    A 13th-century fortified manor, the Château de Germolles became the favourite residence, in the 14th-century, of Marguerite of Flanders and Philip the Bold, the first Duke of Burgundy during the Valois dynasty.

The castle grounds were planted according to the romantic 19th-century English style.
