Chateau Les Gaudras  was built in 1850 by Joseph Antoine Fernand, direct ancestor of the current owners. He was count of Majorie of Soursac, born April 18, 1818, engineer and mayor of Roiffieux, descendant of Geraud de la Majorie, lord of Durfort-Soursac knighted in 1352. This house had been  inhabited by the family of the current owners Véronique and Tanguy of Nantes until the death of their grandmother in 1984. It was bought by two successive families who loved and restored it with great taste. But Tanguy and Véronique of Nantes missed their family home. Lovers of old stones and history, they were looking for a home to accommodate their large family (4 children and many grandchildren). In 2012, after 4 years of research, it is on the Internet that they found to their surprise  "their" house that was for sale! It is with immense joy that they acquired it. They have carried out extensive work to arrange the reception area, the orangery, create 8 additional bedrooms and bathrooms in the attic.
