This high quality gite is steeped in history and was a camp for sir Edward of Woodstock in 1369

Originally a fortress, it is located in the second precinct of the fortified part of the Chateau, dating back to the 16th century. It was then turned into a barn and has now been sympathetically restored by its owners .

The main access is through the 10 hectares of ground planted in the 17th century with rare specimen trees.
