Located in the municipality of Ally, 10 kilometres from Mauriac and 17 kilometres from Salers, La Vigne Castle, with its French formal garden and panoramic views of the Mounts of Cantal, welcomes you for a guided tour or a stay in one of its guest rooms.
With its flagstone roofs, this beautiful 15th-century Auvergne building, featuring pepper box turrets and a wall walk on machicolations, is a superb example of medieval architecture.
The main staircase, made of volcanic tuff, leads to the castle's main rooms: the Courtroom with its 16th-century murals; the Troubadour room with its caisson ceiling, colourful stained glass windows and secret door; drawing room with wood panelling from the 18th century; dining room with its majestic dresser standing 5 metres tall; and Gothic chapel with its 15th-century paintings.
Youngsters are sure to love the unusual collection of 4,000 miniature cars and vintage toys, another of 1,000 dolls, and one of over 150 model aeroplanes.
