Description

A fortified stronghold in the 13C, from 1750 to 1789 the castle was converted into the residence of Pierre-Antoine de Longpra, advisor to the Dauphiné parliament. The original moats were turned into a water feature and the defensive walls and terraces were replaced by formal flower beds. The relatively low-key outer architecture hides an interior of 18C Italian inspiration, the work of some of the leading regional craftsmen of the era.
