It is at this point that were probably built moats which can be observed marks on the walls. The facades of the house date back to their part of the seventeenth century, following the acquisition of the castle by John Saulières, Lord of Lescure and Berneray. The buildings suffered significant work in the late nineteenth century. The eastern part of the ground floor dates from that time, and the upper part of the tower. The door "Louis XIII" of the central building is listed as historical monuments by order of 29 November 1948.
