Chateau de Montal, Saint-Jean-Lespinasse

Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web
Admire the unique architecture of Chateau de Montal, a masterpiece of the French Renaissance with three round towers and one square tower. Jeanne de Balsac (a woman) built the castle from 1519 to 1534. She's also responsible for restoring and furnishing the chateau in the early 20th century style. Take in the striking contrast of the light stone with the black slate roof. Walk along the garden paths lined with evergreen dwarf-hedge mazes. The site is available for event rental, so call ahead to make sure the grounds and interior will be open to the public.

  • Have a heart, like a castle, that is what you will feel if you come to visit me. Let us tell you the moving story of Jeanne, the amazing fate of this castle dismantled, this fabulous reconstruction. Jeanne and her family are still present--that's 25 years that I love this castle. Congratulations to the carried out restorations, it's beautiful. A beautiful work done by people who have a real passion. Do not hesitate, come and see it.
