Built between 1622 and 1630 by Claude Ier Gallard, the Château de Courances has undergone many changes over the centuries.
Left in a state of neglect during the 19th century, it was entirely restored in 1872 by Baron Samuel de Haber, a wealthy Swiss banker seeking a large estate. At the time, Baron Samuel de Haber added important elements, including the famous horseshoe staircase, copied from the Château de Fontainebleau, and the red bricks on all the facades, which are typical of the Louis XIII style, but were inexistent until the end of the 19th century. This is why the Château de Courances is said to be twice Louis XIII!
Today, the château is still entirely private, and is home to four generations of the Ganay family, the current owners.
