Signifying “House on the Rock” in Celt, the wooden fort was built in 923 and was transformed into a stately home over the centuries. The opulence of Château de Menthon Saint-Bernard’s interiors, its history of many generations, incredible, sleek silhouette and majestic geographic position naturally call you to enter through the gates of this magnetic fortress.
