A stronghold attested in 1045. A confession of 1523 by Loys Aymar de Sazilly to the Lord of Ile-Bouchard mentions a fortified castle whose construction could date back to the 12th century. No trace of the fortifications remains, except in the cellars; the moat was filled in shortly before the Revolution. The present dwelling dates in part from the 15th century; it is flanked on the east by a polygonal staircase tower whose door was remodelled in the 16th century. To the north-west, a pavilion, which is an old square tower, partly levelled,
bears a brick watchtower added later. To the south, a wing was added in the 19th century as an extension of the dwelling. A chapel in good condition is attested in the 18th century, but nothing remains of it today.
To the east, the castle's lower courtyard itself constituted a fiefdom, attested in 1502, but probably existing before then, the fiefdom of the Court.
The present dwelling is built of plastered rubble stone and has two square floors. It is flanked on the north-western corner by a pavilion bearing a brick watchtower supported by three projecting brackets and covered by a conical slate roof. To the east, the polygonal stairway tower, a half-elf made of rendered rubble stone, houses a stone spiral stairway. A second stairway leads to the basement which contains a succession of cellars and vaulted masonry passages. On its north side, the dwelling has an open gable. The slate roof ends on the south
side with a hipped roof. The adjoining south pavilion has a single square floor. It has a slate roof and also ends in a hipped roof. To the south-west of the park, a circular dovecote of plastered rubble has around 2,000 ashlar bolts separated by a floor at mid-height, covered by a flat tile roof. A tronlodytic shelter containing a chimney with a bread oven has been dug near the castle.
Within the courtyard, there is a Guest house of circa 70m2 comprising of a kitchen, shower
room with wc, lounge with stairs to the first floor offering a large double bedroom and private shower room with wc. Private enclosed garden and individual gated access.
Next to the guest lodge are the former stables, today used as a storeroom, workshop, wood store and garage with attic space above and offering the potential for further guest accommodation if required.
The original impressive pigeonnaire sits opposite the chateau, 5.8m internal diameter with a wall height of 5.6 again potential to develop further as required.
The covered pool measures 16m x 4m with depth from 1.1m to 1.7m, and the wooden stable block provides two enclosed stables and a tack room.
