A site loaded with history
Argoumbat was built in the 12th century by the Argoumbals, one of
three families dominating the Lomagne at this period. Certain parts of
the walls and some details were preserved from that time.The family
mansion in its actual form was developped around 1750. Since then, it
has been the property of various aristocratic families, among them the
famous mathematician Pierre de Fermat or a candidate for some French
presidential elections. The Chateau is listed «Patrimoine de France ».

family, as a couple, with a group or travelling alone.
