Built in 1247 by Montassin de Goalard, the Abbot of Condom, it became the Bishops of Condom’s country residence in the sixteenth century.

At around this period the chateau suffered badly from the ravages of war and pillaging and had to be rebuilt in the sixteenth century with its later facade dating from the eighteenth century. At the time of the Revolution, it was bought by the Bishops’ steward whose descendants are still the owners today. Henri Faget and his wife produce an Armagnac which has brought renown to this ancestral home, considerably restoring its former glory. Surrounded by more than thirty hectares of vines, it is also one of the most important producers of fine Côtes de Gascogne wines.

The Chateau welcomes over 40 000 visitors a year.
