This part of the French department of Dordogne, in the midst of a Regional Nature Park, is renowned for its unspoilt flora and fauna, where farming, grazing and market gardening have been harmoniously developed in the countryside. This did not escape the attention of Buddhist monks who settled near to the “Maison du Parc” (literally Park House) nor the Montessori School which takes pride of place in the village. The quality of the way of life, the choice of organic farming and ecology made it possible to check depopulation. Equidistant from Limoges and Périgueux, its population is even increasing. The nearby town of La-Coquille has an SNCF train station and all amenities.
This castle, constructed from local shale stone, is composed of two tall, square pavilions, the flat tile, hip roof of which is laid on a wall-walk and machicolation. Four weather vanes, one of which features fleur-de-lis with a Marquis’ crown, top the ends of the ridge. Eight chimneys join to form a single stack above the north pavilion. The windows are framed with granite and those on the first floor are topped with a shale relieving arch.
The construction of the central wing, set back in relation to the pavilions, made it possible to create numerous firing stations in the corners of each level in order to protect the drawbridge and the main doors. These are now adorned with white limestone rusticated masonry moulding representing pilasters topped with cornices, pediments and finials.
Although on the outskirts of the village, this property appears to be completely isolated once inside the gates. The many architectural features on the facade and the outstanding romantic ruins, surrounding the paved courtyard, captivate visitors, caught up in the great history of France, between defence and splendour, between daydreaming and reality. It would be ideal for numerous projects: breathing new life back into the ruins, the moats and the outbuildings, exploring the passageways and the underground rooms enhanced with fireplaces below the courtyard or, simply, converting the south pavilion in order to increase the accommodation capacity. The house, comparable to that of a large family home, would lend itself to a bed & breakfast activity. The additional purchase of an adjoining plot of land would mean that the original entrance could be restored.
