Description

Visit the castle and its amazing exhibitions...The “studiolo » is a very rare discovery. Panorama of the Cantal Mountains, Still occupied by the descendants of the original builders,

Originally a Merovingian castrum, then a medieval fortress rebuilt in the 15th century by the Lords of Scorailles facing the panorama of the Cantal Mountains, La Vigne consists of a central building and towers topped by a covered way including machicolations. The park is an example of gardens “à la française”. Still furnished and occupied by the descendants of the original builders, La Vigne will give you a lively account of the rich past in the Upper Auvergne.
Rich interiors: gothic frescos (chapel), Renaissance style (studiolo), panellings from the Louis XV epoch, neogothic decoration in the troubadour’s bedroom and big staircase of honor.
The “studiolo » is a very rare discovery. In the 16th century, the archives room was transformed into a meditation and curiosity cabinet.
During the visit, you will admire a superb exhibition of 4500 miniature cars relating the fascinating story of the motor car and old toys including plane models and 1100 dolls from the different parts of the world.
