The land of Villeneuve fell in the early sixteenth century to the family of Montmorin. Gaspard de Montmorin added to the charm of the castle painted decorations which you can still see remarkable testimonies in the ceremonial room (recesses of the windows) and large stables. In 1643, Villeneuve Lembron was acquired by Isaac Dufour, treasurer of France, which also brought him to the building facilities. He transformed the courtyard aménagea a portico gallery and also decorated ceilings and fireplaces on the first floor. The chateau and its moats, the gateway to the neighboring farm, home decor and vaulted room decorated with paintings are the subject of a classification as historical monuments since 25 May 19262. Since 1937, the state owns the castle, which is managed by the Center for National Monuments and undertook major restoration work while opening it to visitors.
