541 village road, 38620 Saint-Geoire-en-Valdaine
Conference and visit to the courtyards of the 7 castles. Seven "castles" punctuate the village: the town hall (or castle of Montcla) and the castle of Longpra can be visited. The other domains are: la Lambertière, la Rochette, Clermont, Cabarot and l'Étergne.
The oldest of all the castles of Saint-Geoire is the Château-de-Clermont. It belonged to one of the first descendants of the Clermont family. There is not much left of the original castle, transformed in the 19th century by a family of industrialists from St Geoire (the Michal-Ladichère) in the neo-renaissance style. From the rue de la Rochette, you can discover the entrance and the glass roof and go down to the village by the chemin de Cabarot, leaving the wall of the property on your right.
the Château de La Rochette and its four corner towers is visible above.
The mansions of Etergne, the Domaine-de-Cabarot and the Lambertière complete the visit to the castles of the village. A walk in the form of an orientation course allows you to go around it. The map can be downloaded from this website under the walking section, but it is better to ask the shopkeepers or the town hall for the leaflet (in A2 format).
