    • Located on the site of a former roman camp, the medieval fortress was transformed into an imposing stately home during the 17th century, as the defences were progressively replaced by classical architecture. The Chateau and the Hospice, located in the village and built by the Marquis de Hautefort at the same time as the transformation of the Chateau, reflect the rank and power of the Marquis.

      In the 19th century, the renowned landscape architect, the count de Choulot, created the French formal gardens and the English-style park wich offer a variety of countryside and village views. The formal gardens, delimited by box hedges elegantly surrounding the Chateau, complement the architecture and enhance the pleasure of the visit.

      Go off to explore the castle, at nightfall, in the company of marquess Jacques François’s sister in the 17th century. An unusual visit for all the family...
