An unspoilt, authentic, medieval to renaissance castle above a river valley with 25 ha, court and outbuildings

High on 25 ha of forest and meadows is this rare and authentic stronghold of the past Comptes de Marqueyssac and home to the present family for 450 years. The main structure and roof are in good condition having been recently reviewed and restored yet maintaining a traditional mellow, aged patina dripping in history.

The castle is situated just beyond a hamlet that bears its name in a parish famous for its castles and has views over a valley, two other castles, an ancient riverside village (with its castle), the confluence of two rivers, water meadows and forested hills
