We are an English family bought part of the medieval fort of Leynhac and also the old schoolhouse in the pretty village of Leynhac. Follow the adventures of our renovation as our discoveries uncover some of the history of this magnificent building.
The fort of Leynhac experienced the Hundred Years War, the wars of religion and was always a refuge for the inhabitants of Leynhac who had to defend it. The keep was demolished shortly before the Revolution and its stones were used to build other dwellings, notably Cayla, a large house nearby. The metal portcullis was sold by the municipality sometime after 1789.
