The Chateau Built in the 13th and late 16th centuries, the Chateau de Mayragues is one of the few surviving examples of the local fortified architecture with an overhanging balcony running round the top of the building serving in ancient times as a defensive walkway. At the side there's a picturesque dovecote built on four columns and typical of the Languedoc region; the pigeon droppings were used as a fertilizer for the vines. We bought Mayragues in 1980 in a state of total ruin and have been restoring it ever since, with the help of local craftsmen and using only traditional materials. Our efforts were rewarded in 1998 with the Grand Prix of the Vieilles Maisons Françaises. Mayragues is listed as a Historic Building.
