New works were undertaken by Chastres family since 1950. The park has been abandoned completely refurbished in "terraced gardens to the French." Interior and exterior work was then spread over more than 15 years. The windows were reopened and some windows replaced with stained glass. It was also at this time that the delimitation of the land was carried out with the construction of a wall and a gate at the entrance of the park. Almost all stones used for buildings and walls from a nearby quarry, the Puy de Vaurs.
