Paulhac Castle

Paulhac Castle, locally known as Château de Paulhac, lies in the village of the same name, in the Haute-Loire department in France.

The castle, built on a hill overlooking the village, was first mentioned in the 10th century. At present, it oldest part, the circular keep dates back to the 12th or 13th century. The 2 wings were constructed in the 15th century.

During the 17th and 18th centuries Paulhac Castle underwent rebuilding works. At the end of the 19th century alterations were made to improve its comfort to more modern standards by the Cassagnes de Miramon family, while accentuating its medieval character with a neo-Gothic style.

In 2013 a fire destroyed the castle. Since then it was restored to its present state.

At present Paulhac Castle is privately inhabited and can thus not be visited. A very nice castle.
