The Renaissance castle was built around 1515 and served as a hunting and country residence for the French kings at that time.
The main building is characterised by high windows, thick walls of white tuff and a grey slate roof.
On the protected monumental fireplace there is the inscription: “Ornamentum hereditatis labor” and can be freely translated as : ” fortune is the fruit of hard work”. This aphorism seems tailor-made for us!
At the corner of the walled front garden there is a Renaissance dovecote and age-old trees such as a rare, majestic Lebanese cedar.
