What is a listed or classified building? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this kind of protection?

At Groupe Mercure, we’re passionate about all periods of history: the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the 19th century… Our experts are committed to making the protection and preservation of our heritage a top priority, and to helping each owner renovate and maintain his or her property to add value to the family heritage, while respecting architectural rules.

Today, our châteaux open their doors to you…
