Steeped in history, with its foundations dating back to the 13th Century, the Chateau de Cardou is listed by the “Historical Residences of Character.” It has had several rebuilds - most dramatically in the 15th century as military architecture evolved in line with the development of armaments. It was also rebuilt later in the 18th and 19th centuries, which has contributed to its unique charm and character.
The Chateau de Cardou has been part of the existing owners' family for 271 years and was originally a wedding present from Joseph de Beaudet and his wife Catherine de Montalembert to their daughter Suzanne de Beaudet when she married Etienne-Jacques of Saint-Exupery in 1734. The owners restored one of the original wings in 2001 and this is the part of the chateau available to rent.
