The chateau is "L" shaped and the large part has been renovated with the attic having been prepared for renovation should the new owner wish. The smaller wing of the château has been kept in it's "jus" (original state), as was the historic custom to celebrate the preparation of the hunt meal; "Repas du Chasse".

Large Hunting Parties have been organised for the Château in the past, but not currently active.
This could be reinstated if wished or this Château would make a marvellous wedding venue.
