The chateau had not been maintained for very many years and the last renovations, at the beginning of the 20th century, had been undertaken with quite inappropriate materials (cement render etc.) had actually been damaging to the building. Unnoticed, water had been flowing into the chateau from a number of different points – as much through the walls as through the roof – and this had caused terrible damage.
Between May 2015 and December 2016 no less than 50 local businesses and 120 individuals worked on the restoration of the domain.
The facades, the roof and the interior decorations were worked on by specialists in the restoration of historical monuments who had frequently worked at the Chateaus of Chambord and of Blois.
As the chateau is listed in the inventory of historical monuments, the local curator was closely involved in all the various choices and observed the smooth-running of the project.
