We recently received about 200 guests in one weekend for a great wedding party. Thanks to the nice weather, the guests dined outside and danced until the late hours.
A yoga club from Lyon rented the castle in January for a one-week yoga workshop. Their main requirement was: the castle must be warm. Thanks to our loyal boiler they enjoyed a wonderful week with exercises, health food and rest.
Château de Bussolles is hidden in a wooded area, about 6 km. from the town of Lapalisse. At the front of the castle you overlook the Têche Valley, with the characteristic white Charolaise cows and the occasional deer family passing through.
The estate also used to include the Chapelle de Bussolles, located a few hundred meters from the castle. The chapel is quite dilapidated but still serves occasionally communions, etc. Inscriptions can be seen that the chapel was built around the year 1507 and there are several memorial stones and inscriptions on tombstones of the former inhabitants of the castle (the chapel stands on private property).
At about 300 meters from the castle lies Moulin de Bussolles with an idyllic waterfall. This water mill with outbuildings used to be part of Château de Bussolles. These days it is in private hands.
