Derby Notarial Castle

Resorts: La Salle

Rules for visitors

Not open to visitors.


A complex of different buildings, none dating to before the 16th century, partly transformed for agricultural use.

The massive residential sector displays doors and windows with architraves with the characteristic reversed keel motif. There is an ancient external bread oven (restored in 1970).

There are no historical data, but the name seems to recall the inhabitancy of a notary. It is probably the home of the Lachenal, nobles who lived between the 13th and 16th centuries.
