OVERVIEW

The history of the Château is a long and storied one. The original Baron de Vézins was Hardy de la Porte, who earned the title as a reward for his participation in the first Crusade. It was his family that built the predecessor to the current Château, a redstone fort, on this site between 1200 and 1400. Any peace was short-lived, and, in the century that followed, the Château was likely under the control of the English, during the Hundred Years’ War.

During the time of the Reformation in the 16th Century, the family married into a high-ranking Protestant line. This would, however, lead to trouble for them in the ensuing century. Around 1600, Louis XIII, a staunch Catholic, ordered that Baron renounce his faith, his fortress be destroyed, and his family be killed. Luckily, the children managed to escape to Switzerland and returned to reclaim their land and titles 20 years later

After sitting in disrepair for many years, the Château was finally brought back to its former glory in the mid-19th Century by the Baron at the time. It is during this period that the grand central entry hall – the rotunda – was added. It was also when the park was transformed by the famous landscape architect Andre Leroy into the English-style garden, including the planting of rare American trees such as the sequoia.

The splendour unfortunately was not to last, and, by 1929, the last Baron died after losing most of the family fortune playing cards. The surrounding properties were disposed of bit by bit and the house ultimately lay abandoned until 2006. In 2007 was bought by the Deschamps and Rozon families, who began a process of extensive renovation. The result of these can be seen today across the house and gardens, now restored to pristine period conditions.

ACCCOMMODATION

The Château sleeps 17 in total, with seven double rooms and three single beds (suitable for children). There are five bathrooms, four of which are en suite. It has been renovated to be completely child-friendly. This includes planning the rooms so that the children’s area can be self-contained and children can be entertained on the top floor, giving adults the space to relax below.

During the summer season, the house is rented out on an exclusive basis, which makes it perfect for families or groups of friends who want to have the luxury experience of a lifetime.

There is a heated swimming pool, 7 seater jacuzzi and a brand new sauna.  There are bikes, table tennis and plenty of games to entertain everyonje as well as a yoga and dance studio and a well-equipped gym with showers.
