Long Description:
[FR] "Le château, connu depuis 1123, subit les aléas de l'histoire (investi par les Anglais ; assiégé par les Huguenots) puis est vendu comme bien national à la Révolution. Au 19e siècle, l'architecte Boyer se voit confier les travaux de remaniement, et érige une chapelle néo-gothique, entre 1856 et 1882. Entouré d'un parc fermé par des grilles 18e, le château se compose d'un corps central à deux niveaux sous lucarnes. De part et d'autre, deux pavillons 19e sous toiture à quatre pentes. Sur l'élévation postérieure, deux tours en demi hors-oeuvre, coiffées de poivrières. A l'intérieur, deux salons ont conservé leurs boiseries 18e, ainsi que plusieurs chambres à l'étage. La chapelle s'ordonne autour d'un module carré central, entouré de quatre chapelles rectangulaires. Elle est ornée par onze vitraux réalisés en 1856 et 1882, par Lobin de Tours puis Fournier."
