When you have steeped yourself in the charm of this environment you can proceed to the Portal that leads to the interior courtyard. There you will discover the memorable harmonious architecture of this place.
In the main building which is over 260 feet long there are six large rooms in succession, each with a different style and furnishings depending on the period of its decorating, re-furbishing or restoration.
From the east to the west you will find in succession
- The old stables with their vaulted ceiling that in the 17th century adjoined the north wall.
- the old pool room from the same period
- The grand living room which was entirely re-modeled in the 20th century in classical Italian style. Several portraits of former owners hang there, including ones of the Marquis and Marquise de Nadaillac with their children around them.
- The small library which was transformed in the 19th century and decorated with wood carved by the owner of that time, Stephanie de Virieu.
- The tiled Guard Room has a French ceiling and an imposing stone fireplace from the beginning of the 16th century. Above its mantle is the coat of arms of Poudenas.
- The dining room is decorated in 18th century style and has a parquet floor similar to the ones in Versailles.
