Chateau du Grand-Lucé, located an hour by train outside of Paris, was originally built in 1764 for Baron Jacques Pineau de Viennay III. The Chateau is respected as an excellent example of French Neoclassical architecture. In 2003, American interior designer Timothy Corrigan bought the Chateau and began restoring it - all 45,000 sq ft of it! Today it is a hotel within the Pilot Hotels portfolio.
In August 2018, the former stables were re-introduced as the Ballroom, "layered in antique crystal, gold gilt, and custom Pierre Frey velvet — set against the honest backdrop of what was a simply elegant utilitarian structure in 1764."
