|The chateau of Anjony was built by Louis d'Anjony, one of Jeanne d'Arc's "compagnons" who received instructions from King Charles VIIth to propect the surrounding countryside ; Anjony keep is still here, intact and proud a very characteristic example of the small 15th century mountain fortresses. Its history was tumultuous in the 15th and 16th centuries, as a genuine vendetta existed between the Anjony family and the Tournemire family, very close neighbours and rivals. A more welcoming and more modern main building was added in the 18th century to the austere medieval construction. The visitor will see a rich interior decorated with remarkable 16th century frescoes and furniture from various periods of life in the chateau. |
The residence has been inhabited by the same family since its construction.
