Machault family became owner in 1627 and retained nearly two centuries. Castries family bought it in 1842 and it passed by marriage to the Marshal MacMahon, Duke of Magenta, president of 1873-18793. The castle was the residence of Patrice de Mac Mahon, third President of the French Republic, who died there in 1893. The estate remained the property of his descendants.
