Le Chateau was built in 1720, during France’s early Regency Period. The most notorious individual within these four walls was, of course, the Marquis de Sade. It was here, in 1772, that the Marquis organized the very first Theatre Festival in France. The plays in which he personally performed were shown in both Mazan and Lacoste castles. During the revolution, Sade was declared persona non grata in Mazan, the family archives were destroyed and the Château was damaged.

After the Revolution, the Chateau remained Sade’s family property until 1850. It has then been a Residence and later the Chateau played host to a religious school. In 1923, It became Mazan’s old people’s house which finally closed in 1999. In early 2001, the Château was bought by Madame Lhermie, who after a year and half of renovation work, turned it into a real “Hôtel de Charme”.
