General presentation

The château known as the Huguenots (Beuvreuil) dates from the 14th century.
Its name comes from the fact that there were several noble Huguenot families who lived there. It was classified by order of May 2, 1921.

* This superb Beuvreuil manor has remained "in its own juice" for more than five hundred years! It is currently under renovation.

* Entirely built in stone, leaving only a few rare bay frames in brick, the manor has a rectangular plan, confined to cylindrical corbelled towers sitting on powerful buttresses.

* The stone casement windows on the first floor, with their ogival lintels, are the first warning signs of a Renaissance that has not yet been established, the whole having retained its fortified house appearance.

In restoration - Work in progress
