Chateau Mareuil

History, Beauty, Tradition....

Our History


This 15th century castle, overlooking the Asse valley, was built to protect the local area. There was a climate of insecurity at that time, with Brigueil being on the border between Indre and Haute Vienne and the presence of marauding bands of brigands after the Hundred Years’ War. In 1494, Jean 1st de Mareuil was the owner of the castle. This lord’s coat of arms is engraved on a fireplace in the Donjon.  A font found at the site bears witness to there being a chapel at the castle, this font has been re-positioned in our elegant salon.
