Notes: Château de Troussay is a Loire chateau, one of the smallest, located on the French town of Cheverny in the Loir-et-Cher department in central France, Loire Valley.It is the subject of a registration as a historic monument since January 25, 2000.If the foundation stone of the mansion was laid in 1450, its current status date to the oldest parts of the Renaissance, when Robert de Bugy, salt barns officer of the region of Blois and squire of King Francis I was lord. In the seventeenth century, the area is enlarged, with common and two wings, while develops at the back, a beautiful French park. It is in 1732 that for the first time, the building changed owners: the last bridesmaid Bugy sold the castle to the family Pelluys, Blois notaries. Passing over hand in hand time and inheritances, Troussay finally arrives in 1828 in those of Louis de la Saussaye, historian of the Loire castles, member of the Institute, rector of the academies of Lyon and Poitiers. .. This great scholar, well aware of the problems of preservation and conservation of heritage through his friendship with Prosper Mérimée and Felix Duban, fully restores the area, fell, in his own words "very abandoned". After his death in 1900, the castle was sold again to the ascendants of the current owners, not wanting to get away from the Château de Cheverny, whose owners were - and still are - in the same family.
