Back in Time, The History Pages
Name - Chateau de la Tremblaye
Department - Deux Sevres 79
State - Chateau Ruin
It is certain that in the XIVth century, the Chateau de la Tremblaye already exists. Subsequently, this last castle is enlarged and undergoes rearrangements in the XVIth and XVIIth century.
Devastated during the French revolution, La Tremblaye becomes property of O'Riordan, An Irish family.
Since the beginning of the XXth century, the castle has been deteriorating more day by day.
Some of the still standing walls, devoured by the vegetation, threaten sooner or later to collapse,
The Manoir de La Tremblaye was built on a rectangular plan in granite protected by moats straddled by a now defunct drawbridge.
(many thanks to its current owners for letting me look around)
