The Thillombois Castle
Situated in the center of the Meuse departement, 25 minutes away from Bar-le-Duc and Verdun, the castle of Thillombois from medieval times was completely transformed in the XIXth century by an illustrious family, Nettancourt-Vaubécourt.
In 1961, the property was bought by the Municipality of Mantes-la-Ville. The castle becomes then a place of reception for summer camps. This declining activity, Mantes-la-Ville decides to rent it at the association "Connaissance de la Meuse" for a period of thirty years.
Supported by public authorities and sponsors, without forgetting the important part of the voluntary work, the association undertook important works of restoration to protect the castle and made a real place of life and a touristico-cultural pole.
