Castle 'Chazelles' to Aveze

Body of main building of rectangular layout flanked by four angle towers, two towers arranged on the main façade are most salient laterally but they are aligned with the plane of the facade. The two pavilions of angle off-work are backed in both rounds which they completely mask the superstructures. Chapel vaulted edges on the ground floor, staircase in the centre of the main body. Masonry until the 1st floor staircase, then work. The rotating stairs of the towers are in masonry. Cellar-high under the main body half. Berries frames and cornices are andesite.

The main body of the castle is certainly built at the beginning of the 17th century; in 1691, the main door of the front facade is redone. In the 18th century, two pavilions of angle off-work are backed the 2 corner half-off-work on the main façade towers. It is probably at this time that the two towers are refurbished jagged. In 1824, right Pavilion presented a grip much larger now, without that we can specify the plan grounded. At the beginning of the 19th century, the space between the towers on the two short sides of the main body is constructed. The minor works are carried out on two square pavilions off-work: eyes-de-oxen that illuminate the attic, identical to those kept in the main body, are expanded in windows, retaining only the pediment of the primitive berries. It is probably at this time, but after 1824, that is also built the barn for horses leaned to the gable of one of the farms in the castle wall. In 1824, the cadastral map shows that 3 farms exist on the outskirts of the castle which they depend. None survives but 4 new farms are built from 1824 to 1900, in the immediate vicinity of the Castle. The castle is transformed into colony of the Comité d'Entreprise de l'Usine Palport holiday centre in Clermont-Ferrand.
