Genius loci


In 1929, Charles and Fern Bedaux decided to renovate the castle apartments and hunting lodge for their comfort and that of their guests. Each of the eight rooms of the castle had its own bathroom, decorated with blue and green glass mosaics designed by Novello, from Tours, introducing a stunning Art Deco style.

This remarkably beautiful and refined setting was equipped with the best technology, sinks, faucets, bathtubs and heated towel rail imported from Canada by the company Crane. Each bathroom also featured an “ultra-modern” American system allowing guest to fill and drain the bathtubs in 30 seconds. Fern Bedaux’s bathroom was the most beautiful and spacious of the eight bathrooms installed at the time.
