Renovations at our château are advancing – we’re now restoring the tower!
For centuries, our magnificent tower at Château Cramirat withstood the trials of time, silently watching over the village of Sergeac. It’s a later addition to the original 12th-century Templar structure, which served as a key community landmark for ages.
Our tower stands three stories high, built from solid limestone blocks with supporting machicolations typical to this region at the time of its construction. The rounded rooftop is laid with Luze stones in the characteristic regional style, just like the chateau’s roof. Light enters through two classical stone windows and a small ornamented clerestory window at the very top.
The grand entrance is still adorned with an ancient family crest, which was deliberately sabotaged in the French revolution by peasants who effaced every class symbol. Despite this all, our tower has kept its emblem of identity, which we are now carefully exposing under the expert hand of our monument restoration specialists in collaboration with the official French ABF, DRAC, Ministry of Culture, and the Mayor of Sergeac.
