The Château de Monte-Cristo is a writer's house museum located in the country home of the writer Alexandre Dumas, père.
The château was built in 1846 by the architect Hippolyte Durand in Port-Marly, Yvelines, France. Dumas named it after one of his most successful novels: The Count of Monte Cristo . Durand also built a writing studio on the grounds, which Dumas named the Château d'If after another setting from the same novel. In 1848, short of money, Dumas had to sell the property.
