The castle from it’s beginning through many centuries belonged to Hurault family and its descendants, except the time when Diane de Poitiers lived here, but it didn’t last long. The castle its current look got when Henry Hurault lived here. Yes, by the way, castle holders, during time from Louis XII to Henri IV, were secretaries and ministers for these kings. Henry Hurault was very jealous man and one time when he came home he caught his wife and page making love. The page was shot, but his wife had choices to take poison or saber.
After some time Henry married new wife which was opposite first wife. She was interested in furnishing new castle and she had good taste.
The castle is made from special stones, which with time becomes only brighter and this also gives to castle very good look.
