The Château de Huisseau-sur-Mauves

Originally a simple wooden fort, the château of Huisseau-sur-Mauves was replaced around the 10th century by a fortified castle around which were grouped the dwellings which constitute the embryo of the current village. The land of Huisseau has never left the line of its founders since 1160.

Today, this preserved estate, which has remained little known, opens its courtyard and gardens to visitors. The opportunity for a timeless walk, between greenery and old stones, to discover a long history and the people who wrote it.

From the harshness of feudal times to the sweetness of life in the countryside under the Ancien Régime, or the dark hours of the 1870 war, all eras have left their mark there, and history (the big one and the small one) mixed with family memories.

Yann and Catherine de Robien, who, more than ever anxious to preserve and share this beautiful heritage of which they are guardians, have undertaken major restoration work on the facades and roofs of the venerable residence, in order to make it discover in the heart summer, courtyard side and garden side…
