Château de Montauban

Fontvieille - Cultural place

Cette demeure, décor de bon nombre de romans d'Alphonse Daudet, fut avant tout un lieu de calme et de repos pour l'auteur : “Maison bénie, que de fois je suis venu là, me reprendre à la nature, me guérir de Paris et de ses fièvres...”.

Cette superbe bâtisse, composée d'une façade monumentale du XIXe siècle accolée à un mas du XVIIIe siècle, était la demeure de la famille Ambroy qui accueillit l'auteur lors de ses séjours en Provence. Daudet y fît des passages réguliers avec son épouse Julia à partir de 1863, sur invitation de ses cousins.

Devenu centre muséal dédié à l'histoire du village, le château de Montauban présente la préfiguration d'un vaste projet culturel dans lequel s'inscrit déjà l'exposition permanente sur les découvertes archéologiques médiévales du territoire.
