The Château de Touffou is a castle, converted into a mansion, in the commune of Bonnes in the Vienne département, near Poitiers, France.The château was constructed over several centuries. The Medieval Wing includes Romanesque and gothic elements (keep).The main difference between these two epochs in castle construction is that in the Middle Ages, a castle was built for defense. In the Renaissance however, a castle was a home for nobles.
Today, the Medieval Wing is used to accommodate large business meetings and seminars, and the Renaissance Wing is the private residence of the castle proprietor.The castle has been privately owned throughout its existence. It passed from the Oger family (1127-1280) to the Montléon family (1280-1519) and eventually to the Chasteigner family (1519-1821).
