Le Chateau de la Vigne


Castle built in the late fifteenth century facing a spectacular panorama overlooking the mountains of the Cantal and Salers. Embellished in the eighteenth century, it is inhabited by its decendants and is always furnished.

Visitors especially admire the XV and XVI century murals of the Chapel and the Hall of Justice, the reception rooms with their Louis XV woodwork, the House of J. J. Rousseau, the incredible bedroom troubadour with the secret door and the ceiling painted with coats of arms.

The castle is also home to two rare exhibititions; 4000 toy cars and 750 dolls of the world

In the ancient battlements there is an exceptional and rare exhibition of 3500 model cars, scale models and antique toys in 70 display cases covering 200m2.  An ideal visit for enthusiasts, big and small, and collectors.

Under the 15th century eves of the chateau, 750 dolls coming from all 4 corners of the world have been collected over 70 years by the owner’s family, for the pleasure of our visitors. A mixture of coloured costumes and national dresses.
