A typical Renaissance château
Built on the left bank of the Cher, the castle consists of two towers situated at the northern entrance: one houses a chapel and the other one, a fruit room. The main building, located on the east wing, overlooks the garden and the courtyard.
At the northwest, a seigniorial dovecote, with its rotating ladder in working order, completes the whole. A hunting lodge and the servants’ quarters, that mark the southern and western limits of the courtyard, are dated early XVIth century. At the quarters ground floor, the stables could welcome up to 7 horses and the wine warehouse has been operating for 250 years.
