A bit of history

History of the château

History of the château

The château la Redortière has been built in 1888 by François Henrotte, a banker from Paris. You can still find his inititals engraved on the front of the building. 

It was the era of the "Belle Epoque" in France. He created an estate of 200 ha around the château. Three main farms belonged to the estate : Javernac, la Redortière and Lésignac. 

The family Henrotte financed half of the construction of the church of Lésignac in 1904. They thus influenced its architecture and ornament. 

But then the first world war started. The heir of the estate, René Henrotte, is fatally injured at the age of 30 in 1918. He married Henriette Thaïs Robin in 1913 who followed him during the war. Her portait as nurs can be found in the enrty hall of the château. 

The viscountess

The viscountess

They do not have any children and she buys the estate from his family in 1929. 

Henriette marries the viscount of Touelgoët in 1940. He brought with him the figur from Brittany which is today beheaded. After the death of "Madame" in 1954 the farm of Javernac is rented to two young Dutch immigrants Jacques and Johannes Van der Velden.
