Château de Castille 6

Château de Castille 8c

The castle of Castille, sometimes called “the castle of a thousand columns” was, in the beginning, a fortified farm during the epoch of the “Grandes Compagnies.” [15th-16th century] When the Baron inherited the property, he transformed it [between 1788-1806], creating the columns, a park and gardens, one of which was a fruit garden with 300 fruit trees and a winter garden of 160 trees.

Translated from: Le Parc et les Fabriques du Château de Castille by Henry de Seguins-Cohorn
