KMC France

In February 2007, NKT acquired the magnificent Chateau de Segrais, just outside Le Mans as the site for KMC France.

Set in 23 hectares (56 acres) including 17 hectares (42 acres) of woods and surrounded by moats, the main building is an 18th century castle that has 2500 square metres of living space.

On the ground floor beyond the reception area, there are two large rooms, which will be converted to a Temple to hold 200 people.

The main house has two large dining rooms, a professional kitchen, laundry, a gallery, and 38 large bedrooms, all en-suite.

Besides the main building there are four smaller houses with an additional 19 bedrooms and a 2000 square metre courtyard with some small dwellings, stables, a launderette, and a bakery.

Work is currently underway converting the buildings and preparing the Temple.

There are plenty of opportunities for working visits to help with the work. If you are interested, please contact admin@kadampafrance.org.
