Discover the property of Château des Louteaux

The main building of this “gentilhommière” has two floors with 7 windows with a view on the semi-circular entrance court set between two octagonal pavilions, each of them caped with an imperial dome. The building is in the pure tradition of Sologne, using a setting of polychrome bricks drawing red and black diamonds on the facades. The park of the chateau is 25 Ha wide, a space big enough to offer many entertainments for young and old: you may go and see the llamas; but if you prefer to organize a hunting party in the surrounding hunts, it's possible !

North of Chézy, the Louteaux is a manor house with a hemicycle courtyard enclosed by two octagonal pavilions of two-colored bricks and imperial roofs, dating from the mid-sixteenth century. It was built at the instigation of François the Tailor, lord of the neighboring lands. François Tailleur, squire and lord of Thonin and Champagnat, took the title of lord of the Louteaux and decided, in 1663, to build in order to live there, a construction in the bourgeois style. Over the centuries, the château has often changed hands. He belonged to Sebastien Alarose de la Bresne, former treasurer of France and first public prosecutor of the commune; he was guillotined the very day of Robespierre's fall, on the 9th of Thermidor, year II, following the affair of Chevagnes, which had forced the mayors of the canton to refuse a requisition of grain. One can also remember the birth in this place, on July 30, 1813, of Jean Nicolas Henry de Chacaton, talented painter of his time. Moulins has many buildings built of brick. This material is preponderant in the 17th and 18th century. It becomes a decoration, its color varies from pink to black depending on the nature of the clay and the duration of cooking. The Louteaux are close to the town of Moulins whose history is closely linked to the one of the Dukes of Bourbon, since it becomes the capital of the Duchy in 1327. This  will last until 1523 with the defection of the Bourbon Connetable. You can feel the history of the place when the first "Bourbons" used to live there. It used to be a royal city and its architecture is based on measurement and harmony. During the  "Belle Epoque", the city of Moulins with its refined cafes and hippodrome saw Gabrielle Chanel became the famous Coco Chanel.
