Near the town of lyons-la-forêt, vascoeuil château is a centre of art and history that is renowned for its exhibits of great contemporary artists: dali, buffet, braque, cocteau, vasarely, mathieu…

The great historian jules michelet (1789-1874) stayed several times in this lovely 15th-century house with his dear friend adèle dumesnil, lady of the manor of vascoeuil. he wrote in the office at the top of the 12th-century octagonal tower: the museum dedicated to him, unique in france, was awarded the “maison des illustres” (houses of the illustrious) seal in 2012 from the french ministry of culture.
