The openings irregularly distributed, disfigured elements of what was possibly a gatehouse, a turret overhanging conical base, set up in the corner of the tower and the main building, reflect the successive revisions of the nineteenth and work century.

Common to the east, are complemented by a mill on the Guye.The castle is privately owned and not open to visitors.
