“Montal! Montesquiou!  What a marvelous heritage!  Our ancestors have distinguished themselves throughout the history of France.”  

Like them, Victoire de Montesquiou is a woman of panache. She inherited from her ancestor Charles de Batz de Castelmore, otherwise known as d’Artagnan, a mythic Gascon figure immortalized by Alexandre Dumas in The Three Musketeers, a noble heart, courage, and loyalty. 

A partner in dreams and a partner in life, she is the woman behind the man, who instilled confidence and strength in Patrick de Montal. With enthusiasm and passion, she shares her unwavering support and fashions Arton in her image. She is the soul of Arton!

Her exquisite taste is most found in her hospitality. Reflecting back to everyone the beauty that surrounds them, she knows how to turn everyday things into an aesthetic experience. She possesses an innate elegance. Her secret: a taste for simplicity, of taking pleasure in doing things well, with an inner serenity. Her approach to the Gascon way of life praises beauty. 

Victoire de Montesquiou, talented author, has recounted her memories in the autobiography Je suis née un dimanche (I was born on a Sunday), published in 1990, and shares her singular definition of happiness in her book L’art de vivre au fil des jours (The Art of Living Day by Day), published in 1998.
