Where is the grave of Louis de Funès?

The grave of Louis de Funès is in the cemetery of Le Cellier, a small village in the Loire-Atlantique department of France's Pays de la Loire region.
Louis de Funès, who had a particular affection for this region, lived in the nearby Château de Clermont.
It's a rather discreet and peaceful place, reflecting the actor's simplicity and humility, far removed from the exuberance of his on-screen characters.

Fun trail for children

Younger visitors can embark on a playful adventure along the route, dotted with games designed around the actor's cinematic works, inspired by the creations of Stephan Zimmerli, a versatile artist and member of the group Moriarty.
