The armours Room and the cabinet are decorated with a painted wood paneling, dating back to the 17th century. This unique decors require urgent restorations !
On the paintings, we can see the influence of the Renaissance period : foliage patterns, medallions with landscapes, weapons, masks, allegories.... Mannerist overtones can be identified : profusion and accumulation of patterns, theatrical accommodations.
These decors have never been presented to the public, nor have they been restored.
Restoration works will be planned regarding the following needs :
- The wooden panels and the paint layers must be strengthened
- Some wooden panels must be treated against parasites
- The painted decors have to be cleaned
- Paint flakes have to be fixed
- Areas of paint loss will be repainted
As these decors have never been studied, you will help science to gain ground by participating to this operation.
The restoration program will give us the opportunity to study pigments, and paint layers stratigraphy.
The results of this study will permit to know more about these decors, to restore them better and to preserve them better.
The stables take place in the north part of the barnyard and they were built aginst the castle surrounding wall.
In the 16th century, the building lost its wooden frame and its roofing because of a fire.
Nowadays, the masonry needs to be strengthened. The wooden frame and the roofing should be rebuilt.
The Renaissance staircase is dating back to the 17th century when the south dwellings were decorated. Time and weather have damaged the masonry. Now, its structure threaten to fall into decay and the balusters are deteriorationg.

The all staircase will be cleaned by brushing.
