We hope that you will join us in celebrating the restoration of this impressive historic private château, one of the most beautiful châteaux in Ardèche. Built between 1728-1740 on the site of a 12th-century fortifications, the château has remained largely intact. It is marked by duel influences: that of the bastides of Aix and that of “folies” of Ile-de-France. It organizes a celebrated classical music festival in July and has an important impact on local tourism for a region that is devoid of major tourist attractions.
Restoration project: roof and its 18th-century wooden support beams and the ceiling at the top of the grand staircase that suffers from major water infiltrations
Ceremony begins at 4 pm followed by a private visit.
