The "Little Castle", a building with original architecture since built in the medieval ramparts of the twelfth century, and modified in the fifteenth. A mansion built by General d'Orsay, which bought the castle in 1820. A billiard room, also built by General d'Orsay in 1870. An Italian-style farm, which can still visit the stables.
