    A new display of an outstanding collection

    The Château d’Aulteribe in Auvergne is acknowledged as one of the best and most sumptuously furnished noble residences in France. It features some superb works of art such as the portrait of Cardinal Richelieu by Philippe de Champaigne, Flemish and Aubusson tapestries, porcelain etc.

    The furniture collection includes pieces by the finest cabinet-makers of the 17th and 18th century. This tradition is kept alive at the Château d’Aulteribe today in the workshops which train cabinet-makers and restore items from the collection.

    The new display highlights the Château’s finest pieces and visitors can wander freely through the rooms for a more intimate encounter with the spirit of Aulteribe.
