Brought back to life in the late 1930's by five stone masons from the Creuse region who renovated this château to a very high standard. The granite stone work throughout the three floors is in excellent condition and the attention to detail is astounding. From the open granite fireplaces to the detail of the windows and carpentry , everything has a quality finish. Keeping much of the 15th century features of the original chateau, the tower with the three floor climb up the stone stairs, the heavy oak studded doors, to the metal figurie on the hand made windows, the window alcoves with metre thick walls, the attention to detail is wonderful, some very obvious and other gems to discover.

The extensive renovations once finished left a wonderful property with masses of potential, to be a business or a family home. In recent years the present owner, who inherited the château from his grandfather, has completely transformed one of the large stone barns into a modern four bedroom family home. Two more barns and a large hangar make up the ensemble of outbuildings, all sitting around the outside of the courtyard to the front of the château. The land is all attached and surrounds the buildings, with a tree lined drive and huge established trees all around, with views across the meadows from all directions.
