In the XNUMXth century, the seigniorial house was fortified for defensive purposes to deal with the looters who raged in the Velay during the Hundred Years War.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, successive owners attached to this place and the beauty of the landscapes decided to transform the residence. The defensive house is transformed into a habitable and welcoming residence in the spirit of the times. Expansion of the whole, opening of windows, creation of lounges, and spacious rooms for entertaining.
A plot of 5 ha is delimited all around the castle to create a park worthy of the residence.
The Thiolent park, "green island in the middle of the fields", is in harmony with its castle and the surrounding countryside; there reigns a spirit of rigor, simplicity, beauty and hard work, without ostentation. It illustrates the family and hard-working life in the countryside, at the foot of the Devès foothills.
