Le Prieure du Chateau de Biron
The Château de Biron stands on a high point in the village of Biron . The vast fortress changed hands often between English and French, and was owned by 14 generations of the Gontaut-Biron family until the State took it over in the 20th century.
The Prieuré was a working monastery. The tower end of the building contains a large brick-lined bread oven possibly serving as the village bread-oven for a time. Ownership of the Prieuré through the centuries is difficult to trace. It probably was part of the Gontaut-Biron family holdings. The Chateau itself was in the family from the 12th to the 20th centuries.
Renovation of the Prieuré was started in the mid-1990’s and is continuing under the present owners. The Prieuré is now owned by a French/American couple who are continuing the work of the two previous owners and running it as a deluxe B&B.
