The only part of the chateau which dates from XIVth century is the big tower of the chateau, capped with a roof with a very steep slope during the rebuilding of the chateau. it is also the largest of the towers of bagnac which holds the original cave and bedrooms.
the current chateau it was built by the Marquis (Antony 1826-1892) and the Marchioness de Saint-Martin de Bagnac on the site of old medieval chateau of the XVth century which was destroyed during the wars of religion (late XVIth Century), also note that in this chateau was born Pierre de Bagnac in 1330, large cardinal who was celebrated in Rome. (This is still unknown as other sources say he was born in Bagnac-sur-celle in the Midi-Pyrenees, this also confirms an original chateau of at least the early part of the XIVth Century.

Before it became what it is today.
Medieval Floor Plan
These maps also show the plots in this form before its transformation in the XIVth century although Bagnac is listed as Bugnac, whether this is an error is to be confirmed.

Current day Floor Plan and the old on top of another...
If you study the floorpan in bit more scale, its almost possible to align the 2 buildings into one another maybe proving it was more than jusqt the tower dating to the XVth century...
In its day..
from what i have seen these photo dates to around 1935 or before as the roof to the main house is still there
From what i have seen these photo dates to around 1945 as the roof on the left part of the property had been replaced with a more primitive corrugated style roof but the roof window openings are still in place.
From what i have seen this photo dates to around 1950 or after, the roof on the right part of the property had been replaced with a more primitive corrugated style roof but now the roof window openings are gone.
From what i have seen this photo dates to around 1975 at this time the building would have already been abandoned for over 25 years.
Earlier Ruin Photo from after 1975 still show the Vestible (main entrance) which has now long gone.
