12th-Centruy Château in the Limousin Rescued From Ruin

A 12th century object was saved from ruin. The object was a very old building that dates back hundreds of years. It was originally built as a hilltop defense castle. It still looks just like it did back then. It has a rich history and will be around for many more years. A lot of amazing events have taken place at the castle.

Key Takeaways:

  • Situated on a hilltop, with 360° views over the Creuse countryside, and set within its own parkland, the Chateau du Masgelier dates from circa 1174.
  • One of the oldest and most historic medieval castles in the Limousin, with a colorful history dating back to the Knights Templar, it was originally built as a hilltop defense castle and still retains its vast walled battlements.
  • The south turret of the Chateau’s tower is carved with the Fleur-de-Lis, in honor of the members of the French royal family who resided there over the centuries.

“Over the past four years, I’ve grown to realise that when you take on a hugely ambitious restoration project, in addition to having a resolute approach, your heart is required.”
