The Château de Montpoupon is a castle in the commune of Céré-la-Ronde in the Indre-et-Loire département of France.[1] It is situated to the east of Tours, 10 km south of Montrichard in a picturesque valley in the heart of a forest.


Originally a mediaeval fortress, the castle was altered by the lords of Prie and Buzançais. The postern was constructed in the 16th century.

Since the middle of 19th century, the castle has belonged to the Motte Saint Pierre family. It houses one of three French museums dedicated to hunting with dogs.

It has been listed since 1930 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.[1]
