Beaurieux Castle

Beaurieux Castle, locally known as Château de Beaurieux, lies in the center of the village with the same name, in the Nord department in France.

I think Beaurieux Castle dates back to the 16th century. The seigniory first belonged to the d'Avesnes family. Later it passed to Guillaume, Count de Fauquembergue, and around 1620 to Jean de Robaulx, Governor of Beaumont. Jean was made a Lord in 1631 by the Spanish Crown. Beaurieux Castle stayed in the hands of the Robaulx family until 1974.

The castle was partially destroyed under Louis XIV of France but rebuilt between 1668 and 1671 when it recieved its present appearance; an L-shaped building with a square tower in its corner. The roof was renewed at the end of the 19th century.

At present Beaurieux Castle is a private residence and can not be visited. A quiet village castle.
