This private château, inhabited by the owners today, belongs to the Marcotte de Sainte-Marie family, and has since 1900. In addition to those parts of the château classified as a historical monument since 2000, visitors can also discover a museum in the outbuildings, telling the story of local life in times gone by.
Construction of Troussay began in the mid-fifteenth century, but its first recorded owner only appears in the Renaissance, one Robert de Buggy, lord of Troussay and squire to King François I.
In 1828 the Saussaye family acquired the château. Louis de la Saussaye, a friend of Prosper Mérimée and Félix Duban, carried out extensive restoration work. The François I facade bears references to the architecture of Chambord, while the Louis XII façade is in the Renaissance style.
