Château de Bellegarde



Historic site and monument


Registered and listed sites

This 14th century château underwent extensive renovation in the early 20th century using Leo Drouyn’s plans with grounds designed by Gabriel Perdoux. Its past is closely bound to the Château de Montastruc to the north of the village of Lamonzie-Montastruc which they both tower above at the confluence between the Louyre and Caudeau. Château de Bellegarde has belonged to the same family since the mid-19th century and is home to beautiful receptions rooms, a library, dining room and more furnished entirely with several Aubusson tapestries. This is a real family home whose interiors reflect how wealthy landowners lived in the early 20th century. A walk in the grounds enables visitors to admire Bellegarde’s architecture in all its glory and enjoy panoramic views of Caudeau Valley.
