Chateau de Terre Neuve.
This privately owned chateau built in 1580 by Nicolas Rapin High Provost of the constables of France and companion of Henri 1V, is inhabited all year round by the descendants of d'Octave de Rochebrune and is a listed Historic Monument. The famous French writer George Simenon lived in the chateau from 1940 to 1943.

The Chateau is an architectural gem and is renowned for its monumental fireplaces decorated with alchemist's symbols. It is also noted for the stone carved coffered ceilings, its wood panelling from the Chateau de Chambord and the gold-leaf suns in Louis X1V's bedroom. Also worthy of admiration are the original paintings, furniture, collections and splendid items of clothing from the XV11 and Xv111 centuries.
