An 18th century chateau and its outbuildings, set between meadows, forest and lake in the centre of France, near to Tronçais Forest and Moulins.
This provincial area, bordering the frontiers of the Auvergne, Berry and Burgundy regions, has a mild climate due to the effect of the westerly winds.
This chateau stands in the midst of Bourbonnais bocage countryside, near to the town of Moulins and the spa resort of Bourbon-l'Archambault.
Slip roads for the A77 motorway are some 10 km away as is a train station with 3-hour links to Paris-Bercy.
Boasting a pure Regency style, this chateau was constructed at the very beginning of the reign of Louis XV in 1730. A chestnut tree-lined driveway leads to a vast, main courtyard. The chateau, its two wings and its separate outbuildings are set out in a quadrilateral around this courtyard. The main, 2-storey building, with its slightly protruding central bay, is aligned with 18 openings. The local brick used in the construction gives the buildings a red-ochre hue, other hues forming geometric patterns, the quoins and the string courses. The top of the garden facade features a clock. The chapel, with its restored bell-tower, and the dovecote, with its polychrome bricks, close the right and left wings, their curved shapes breaking the rectilinear aspect of the property. The main building is topped with a lightwell which is visible from the outside like a belvedere and actually illuminates the upstairs vestibule. It gives the building a pyramid shape. There are six outbuildings, all separate from one another and built around the courtyard.
The polychrome brick walls and roofs of the outbuildings are in a good state of repair. They comprise vast stables and garages. Some have been converted, others await conversion. One of them has been transformed into a large function room.
Characteristic of the brick heritage in the Bourbonnais region and representative of a neo-classical decor rarely found in these lands, this chateau is listed as a French Historic Monument. Its full protection, providing all the associated advantages, including the possibility of obtaining subsidies to cover up to 85% of any works (State, Region, Department).
The chateauThis chateau is composed of a central, rectangular building with two lateral wings. The polychrome brick used for its construction enhances the facade which features numerous windows. An original clock sounds the hours. The chateau looks out over a main courtyard, delimited by its outbuildings and spanning a hectare. On the garden side, the chateau has a view of a vast, game-filled forest, with a lake, and parklands, planted with trees hundreds of years old.
The chateau long belonged to the Cadier family.
This family of Bourbon barons and officers owned mansion houses in Moulins as well as Veauce castle and its lands. In 1692, Michel-Cadier purchased Saint-Augustin-et-Veauce castle and took over the associated rights. He added a chapel in 1704, with a bell featuring the family coat-of-arms (blue background with a yellow stag’s head bearing 10 tines). His son, Gilbert demolished the feudal castle and rebuilt a Regency style chateau and hunting lodge in 1730. This chateau included 4,000 ha of forests, a mill, a tile production plant, estates and rental properties. Then, by marriage, it became the property of Count Chaillon-de-Joinville who restored and modernised it in a neo-classical style. The dining room was decorated by the famous architects, Percier and Fontaine. The Italian and landscaped style gardens were the work of landscape gardener, Lalos.
Count Chaillon-de-Joinville’s son being childless, the chateau went to his niece Marie-de-Rolland who left all her possessions to her goddaughter, Ludmila-Olivier in 1916.
In 2003, the estate was sold to a descendant of Michel-Cadier.
