« It was in 1993 that we came into possession of the castle of the Servayrie. Fifteen years of restoration have been necessary for us to welcome our guests today. Fifteen years of passion, pleasure, shared by the entire family and which now allow the castle of the Servayrie to resume its place proudly in the Aveyron landscape. »
The Château de La Servayrie once depended on the co-seigneurie de Mouret, a castral ensemble that brought together, on this nipple, no less than 4 castles on this nipple.
The family of Entraygues, Lord of Servières in particular, settled there in the 12th century, joining the family of Moret who in the vicinity gave the Abbey of Conques its most remarkable Abbot: Bégon III of Moret, a family that distinguished itself in particular to the Crusades.
The King of France, through the Senechal of Alphonse de Poitiers, or Eustace de Beaumarchais occupies the Château Mage.
Some remains of these ancient castles remain, including the Tower of Reilhac, which was also Abbot of Conques. Only the Château de La Servayrie is preserved in its integrity after 15 years of restoration.
At the Château de La Servayrie, the entraygues family will succeed the family of Résigade who welcomed marguerite de Vallois, Queen of France, in 1585 when she fled from Agen to Carlat. The families of Resigade and Selve will succeed François de Laroque de Sénézergues, the first gentleman of the King's Chamber.
The entire site, both archival, monumental and archaeological, was the subject of a multidisciplinary research programme led by Toulouse Mirail University, CNRS and HADES. The result, now widely published, is the subject of numerous seminars. Madame and Monsieur FABRY will be delighted to tell you about this rich past, including the story of what this co-lordy was, a typical southern way of sharing power.
The castle today
The Château de la Servayrie, a residence of exceptionality and character, was classified in 1994 as a total Historical Monument.
This estate harmoniously combines the charm and authenticity of one of the oldest houses in the Aveyron with modern comforts, introduced after an exemplary restoration.
The quality of this restoration was rewarded in 1997 with the 1st prize "Point de Vue - Châtelains d'today" and praised by the national print and television press.
This restoration was an opportunity to introduce the marks of our time with the thirty stained glass windows created by J.D. Fleury who created at the Abbey of Conques the stained glass windows of the painter Pierre Soulages.
