castle des reaux

The influence of the old fortified castle appears on the general plan of the building: it is situated on an island totally surrounded by a large water ditch which served for security reinforcement.
The present castle was built on the site of the old fortified castle by Jean Briconnet. In 1650, the castle was sold to the writer and poet Tallemant des Reaux for whom the castle became home and his family name was attributed to the castle since the 30 of July 1653 by a royal charter of the king.
