The Château de Blancafort : the Magic of a Fortified Manor House in Berry

The Château de Blancafort : the Magic of a Fortified Manor House in Berry

Standing in the village which has borne its name since the 15th century, the château de Blancafort is one of the best-preserved properties in the whole of Berry.

Built on what was originally the site of an 11th century manor, this solid castle and the lands it dominates were initially the property of a court noble. In the heart of the « Pays-Fort », a fertile region in the administrative department of the Cher, the castle has a beautiful brick-finish and rises on the banks of the Sauldre. It sits in a park of 17 hectares enriched with a French formal garden.

Blancafort, a Fortified Castle in Berry

The property, with its Romanesque turrets and Baroque facade, came into the possession of the Parisian decorator, Alban de Montjou, through a family inheritance. He gaves the castle its present lustre, a very fine collection of period furniture, Hungarian parquet floors, Regency wood-panelling and Gobelins tapestries to finish out the historical references.
