Confiscated in the 14th century by Charles V, the house was offered by the sovereign to the Church, of which it remained the property for the next four centuries. It returned to private ownership after the French Revolution and was shorthly after the witness of family arguments between the supporters of Bonaparte and those of the monarchy.

Before becoming our family home, the house returned to the church to become the bishop’s residence for almost a century, until 1992.

The quietness of the INTIMATE GARDEN and the convenience of the ON SITE PRIVATE PARKING contribute to make the house a CONFIDENTIAL ADDRESS where time seems a suspended moment.

We hope that you, like us, will be carried away by the charm of the house and its SECRET GARDEN. We have designed and renovated it to become a FAMILY HOUSE, an AUTHENTIC and SPACIOUS haven of peace, hidden in the center of a picturesque town.
