About the House

According to the history, the residence has been built in 1474 by René of Anjou. René, called « the good king », was duke of Anjou, count of Provence, duke of Bar, Lorraine, king of Naples, Sicile and Jerusalem.

This house has been called chapter house, or the castle, or the king René’s house, and also Ollivier’s house, name of the first owner of the house, Pierre Ollivier, tax prosecutor between 1474 and 1490.

Before the French Revolution, the coat of arms of the Jeanne de Laval’s family (second wife of the king) appeared in the house.

Revised and extended in the 18th century, this is the place where the « famous » Auberge du Roi René has been developped.

The house is today a guest house where we will welcome you with pleasure.
