The Chateau de Candie is located on the heights, and overlooks the city of Chambery. In the heart of a magnificent six-hectare park with hundred-year-old trees,this authentic 14th century fortified house combines past and present. Built in the Middle Ages in the town of Chambery-le-Vieux, which is today considered the oldest village in Savoy. Perched on a hill a little out of the way, it is surrounded by a century-old forest and vineyards. The noble family of Candie, formerly named Chaffaron, were close to the House of Savoy, with whom they hunted in the woods of Candie. The family owned the farmland in the surrounding area.These were sometimes crossed by merchants crossing the Alps and pilgrims going to pray to the Virgin of Holy Shadow, protector of travelers, in the village below. From its view of the mountains, to the rustling of the water from the fountain, to the shivering of the wind in the leaves of trees, the place is conducive to relaxation. In addition to its sumptuous history and its superb setting, the castle is a family place.
