This 15th century fortified house was embellished with Renaissance galleries and living quarters in the 17th century. Count Roger Bussy de Rabutin, author of the scandalous Histoire Amoureuse des Gaules and exiled by King Louis XIV, expressed his resentment against the king and his nostalgia for his former life on the walls of his residence. He assembled a sublime collection of portraits in the reception room, an abridged version of ancient and modern history embellished with his biting commentary. Vast formal French gardens provide a stunning environment in which to appreciate the property.
