The Castle of Châlus-Chabrol

Castle of Châlus-Chabrol Castle of Châlus-Chabrol The Castle of Châlus-Chabrol testifies to the power of its owners, who were all members of the most important families in France: the Sully, d'Albret, Borgia and, lastly, Bourbon.
The most memorable event to do with the castle remains the death of Richard the Lionheart, King of England, who besieged it in 1199.

A town soon developed behind the castle, around a priory (L'Abbeille). During the Revolution, the emigration of the Count of Bourbon in 1792 led to the estate being sequestrated and auctioned. The Count bought back some of his seized property when he returned and the castle remained in Bourbon family hands until the end of the 20th century. It included part of the living accommodation with a tower, a keep, the remains of an 11th century chapel and the main part of 17th century living accommodation.
