The castle, a stronghold of Charfetain, belonged in the second half of the 17th century and most of the 18th century to the Frere family provides several aldermen in the city of Lyon. During the Revolution, the house and land were sold as national property. Currently, Charfetain more like a mansion and one can notice the entrance gate and the chapel which was attached in 1733, the parish Brussieu.
