Good King René had this magnificent monument constructed in 1472; in 1985 the building was restored. The medieval monument you can admire today is mainly the work of contractors who, with simple materials, knew how to bring this magical place back to life. It has 66 apartments with kitchenettes, dining areas and bathrooms (with terraces for the apartments at garden level) and it benefits from the neighboring swimming-pool, the Val d'Arc sports complex and the municipal tennis courts just a stone's throw away.
