History

The castle of Ambrus is located in the region dear to King Henry IV whose mother was originally from. Since the thirteenth century, in 1259, Ambrus belonged at that time to four co-lords. With the exception of the Hundred Year War, the building does not seem to have suffered from the events of regional history. A square keep dominates all the buildings where elements of the old medieval fortifications, towers, archers, watchtowers are found. Buildings rest on either side of the central tower and are welded to the west facade by a long two-level room forming two large galleries. The commons determine with the surrounding walls a square courtyard whose access is defended, to the west, by a châtelet of entrance with bretèche. An L-shaped dwelling was built to the north of the tower with a corner tower and an enclosure in the 15th century. The entrance, to the northwest can date from the late sixteenth century. In the eighteenth century, a house with agricultural outbuildings closed the courtyard. Ambrus belongs today to the family of Baron d'Arthuys, who renovated it lovingly. It is in perfect condition, and offers a space of exceptional relaxation.
