A property in perfect condition, in the same family since more than 60 years, today in search of a successor interested in the conservation of the place and / or the continuation of the tourist activity surrounding the house and its history .

The present castle was erected at the end of the 15th century and finished at the beginning of the 16th century. Completely made of brick, it originally had to include a quadrangular plan confined by towers and an imposing quadrangular dungeon still in elevation and symbol of the seigniorial power of the owner.
After many changes in the 17th and 19th, the castle today unveils a plan in "U" housing a beautiful courtyard with a gallery open on the east side overlooking the park's bridle path and two pavilions Louis XIII at the entrance.
The building offers more than 2000m ² habitable on several levels and with cellars under a part. The whole is connected by 3 stairs including a beautiful wooden spiral staircase in the dungeon.
The facades of the castle are pierced with large openings (works of the 17th) thus offering great interior brightness.
On the ground floor, a superb reception including a large entrance, a large living room, a small lounge in a tower, a large dining room, a library and a smoking room. The rooms are set on beautiful wooden floors and are decorated with warm regency wood paneling, beautiful fireplaces and French ceilings.
Exceptionally, the walls of the dining room are adorned with 16th century Cordoba leather, completely authentic and in good condition.
Upstairs, 5 large bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and small kitchen.
On the second, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
The Donjon offers 4 levels: kitchen and office on the ground floor, guard room, bedroom with bathroom, and various homes of servants on old tiles.
Large attics above the whole. And large cellars under the main part including a superb ice room in one of the towers.
The outbuildings are numerous and in perfect state of maintenance:
