Les Jardins Suspendus de Marqueyssac

Part Three

This section is on the Château, aviary and gift shop.

The Château was built in the 17th century by Bertrand Vernet de Marqueyssac, counsellor to Louis XIV. It has been under restoration since 1996. Although there is a great deal of work to do and much of the interior cannot be seen, the rooms available are very beautiful and so is the outside, and therefore along with everything else it is still worth a visit.

This is the view of the impressive Château that you get when you first enter the estate

The bedroom is gorgeous, “Can I have a bedroom like this one Paul?”

I would love this dinning room too.

I really must return to the gift shop for one or two of these gorgeous antique style jars.
