Open all year round
The Château de la Mogère is one of these exceptional residences in the area, particularly for its monumental expression. Built at the beginning of the 18th century, it bears witness to the enrichment of a new aristocracy in Montpellier. The notables invested in the rural countryside to build "houses in the foliage", mainly summer dwellings with sumptuous gardens and tree-lined spaces.
In 1706, Fulcran Limozin, secretary to the king and controller of the Chancellery of Montpellier, bought the agricultural estate of La Mogère to settle there. Designed by the Montpellier architect Jean Giral, the current château was built in 1715. After having belonged to a famous family of the city, the Boussairolles, the Château de la Mogère became the property of the Saportas. And it is now the Viscount Gaston de Saporta, a descendant of the 9th generation of the family, who opens its doors.
The Viscount de Saporta will be pleased to welcome you for a guided tour. The estate is open from 01/06 to 30/09 every day from 2.30 pm to 6.30 pm and from 01/10 to 31/05, weekends and public holidays in the afternoon. From the hotel, you can reach the Château de la Mogère in about 10 minutes by car or with tramway line 1 from the Gare Saint-Roch stop to Odysseum.
