Chateau Arcine 1

The Chateau d’Arcine is a private family estate located in Saint-Pierre-en-Faucigny in southeastern France, just a few kilometres from the Swiss city of Geneva. The castle was built high above town and offers an outstanding view on the mountains and the valley, and sits on a property that covers an area of 5ha 42 (13.4 acres).

Also known as the Château de Rumilly-sous-Cornillon, parts of this castle date back to the 11th century and for most of the Middle Ages it was owned by the Counts of Geneva. In 1411 the castle was sold to Duke Amadeus VIII of Savoy, and the site has remained in private hands over the centuries.
