History of Château de France
Château de France was constructed on the foundations of an old manor, the attractive arched cellar of which still exists today… a mansion constructed at the end of the 17th century by the prosecutor Philippe Decoud.
From the jurisdiction of Gardère to the jurisdiction of France ?
The château has preserved the name of the former locality on which it was constructed. It is probable that the land of “de France” was previously only a part of the jurisdiction of Gardère. The actual domaine de France, was in effect, before 1681, a group of small parcels, united in the 16th century by Marseau Dubasque and Jean de Latreilles. Indeed historic records show that in 1648, husbandman, Marseau Dubasque purchased parcels of land from barrel carpenter, André Dejean.
