The Château of Saint-Saturnin
The difficulties suffered after the French Revolution, the lack of maintenance, and then the abandonment of the château from 1970 to 1987 made it necessary to carry out major cleaning, refurbishment and restoration work. The new owners have taken on this task with the financial support of regional institutions. The château has been occupied by its current owners since 2007.
Our activities enable us to finance the maintenance of the buildings and gardens. However, the restoration work requires specific funding which is provided by the owners, grants and sponsorship.
THE HISTORY OF THE CHÂTEAU
Huge windows were added to the outer rampart in the 16th century, and the subsequent dismantling of the fortifications that protected the entrance to the château eventually opened up the main courtyard to offer a view of the village's Romanesque church.
