Chateau Marouatte


chateau marouatte

Chateau Marouatte is located in the commune of Grand Brassac 24350 France. Built on Roman foundations, it was originally a Roman guard post watching over the road below.

The castle name comes from the Latin Frankish word "Muratum" meaning wall. The castle was built between the 1200s -1400s, but the outer bailey was only constructed in 1579.

It was the seat of the Montagrier family for several centuries. Privately owned, the castle has currently 7 round towers, a tall octagonal central keep, a moat cut into the rock, battlements and other features. Laying on 110 hectars of land, the castle also features an impressive dovecote, apparently the largest in the region.

My family has owned the castle since 1992 and been renovating it in the Gothic style (Gothic revival a la Pugin and Violet le Duc)
