Alexandre Dumas 2

In the grounds of the Chateau Monte Cristo there is a second smaller castle, which Dumas used as his writing studio. He named this building Chateau d’If, after the prison from which the Count of Monte Cristo escapes in the novel. The titles of Dumas’ novels are engraved on the outside of the building, and you can peer inside to see the room where he worked.

The two castles are set in a one hectare landscaped garden, which maintains the fantasy aspect of the castles by having a grotto, ornamental rocks and a waterfall.
