Notes: The Maison forte de Chatillon is a medieval house that stands in the town of Lugrin in the Haute-Savoie region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. The fortified house belongs to the family of Châtillon Chablais, which also owns the Castle of Larringes. This family is present since 1286 in Lugrin. The house passes in 1341 to Pierre Chatillon, son of Guillaume de Chatillon. She is quoted in the text to many other times over the centuries. It consists of a main building and a secondary home, connected together by a turret in which there are spiral staircases and a round tower adjoining the secondary dwelling southwest. A wall, the base of a tower is still visible in the northeast corner, defines an interior courtyard. January 29, 1645, the cover of the round tower of the house is carried by the wind, as the banner hanging who was there and who represented the arms of Chatillon and Lugrin. It was purchased by the Gaillet family in 1858.
