The Château de Clermont, built between 1643 and 1649, is located in the commune of Le Cellier, 27 kilometres from Nantes in France. It was owned by the Maupassant family before becoming the property of the actor Louis de Funès.
The appearance of the château has remained broadly the same since its construction at the time of the regency of Anne of Austria during the minority of Louis XIV. Its southern aspect, which overlooks the River Loire offers a panoramic view over the Pays des Mauges and the Pays de Retz. The northern aspect has a shaded avenue perpendicular to the Paris-Nantes road framed by the original wings of the château. It is surrounded by 3 hectares of parkland and a vineyard of 17 hectares . Louis de Funès had a rose garden planted, but nothing remains of it today.
