Château de Coppet
The Château de Coppet is the stately, elegant former home of the celebrated intellectual Mme Germaine de Staël and her father, Jacques Necker who was the Director of Finance to Louis XVI. Guided visits of the chateau are given from Easter to end of October. In the winter there is a skating rink and a Christmas market is held in late November. Other events like concerts, plays and a garden show take place throughout the year.
