The origins of the castle date back to the end of the 11th century. In the 16th century, this old "strong house" was restored and embellished by Jean de Talaru. These are the arrangements that gave it the appearance we know today.
The castle consists of three superb stone farm buildings, a 4 hectare enclosed garden, two pavilions and a family chapel.
