Château de Sully
Château de Sully information
This Renaissance-style château, on the outskirts of the village of Sully (15km northeast of Autun along the D973), has a beautifully furnished interior and a lovely English-style garden. It was the birthplace of Marshall MacMahon, Duke of Magenta and president of France from 1873 to 1879, whose ancestors fled Ireland several centuries ago and whose descendants still occupy the property. On Wednesday afternoons between June and September, guided visits in English can be arranged.
