Le Château De Vianges The Château de Vianges is a registered French Monument Historique and it is one of the most ancient maisons-fortes (fortified houses) of the Côte-d'Or department.Originally built in the 11th Century, in 1305 it was officially listed as defensive military post. Today, after careful restoration, the castle displays both 17th and 18th century facades with large windows, preserved roofs and towers and a characteristic pigéonnier. There are two portals, one facing North and the other, with turrets, facing East. According to the Côte-d'Or Departmental Archives, a local family owned the Château de Vianges until the 13th Century when the Cussigny family bought the property. It was Philippe Saladin de Cussigny who transformed the property from a military structure into a stylish and elegant castle, following the Renaissance architectural taste and fashion of that time. In 1704, the castle was sold to Claude de Morey who became Marquis de Vianges in 1723 and then Governor of Vézelay.In 1755 the Marquis of Mac-Mahon, by marrying Charlotte de Morey, the young widow of the late Marquis, acquired the property for its family. The Château de Vianges remained in the hands of the Mac-Mahon, then Dukes of Magent, after the homonymous battle and victory under Napoleon III, until 1997 when it was sold to an Italian aristocratic family, who carefully restored and furnished the entire property as their French country seat.
