Le Château d'Origny, chambres d'hôtes et restaurant gastronomique à Ouches (42)

__L'histoire

Château d’Origny next to Roanne , in the village of OUCHES, was built at the end of the XVIth century by a certain Jean Donqui, a fabulously wealthy faïencier from Roanne who was undoubtedly at that time, the most fortunate man of the region and of Roanne.
__Peu après sa construction, Origny passa par alliance en 1690 à la famille de Luzy-Couzan, dont les armoiries ornent le fronton triangulaire de la façade orientale. Le château changeait donc de propriétaire, et ce jusqu’ à la veille de la Révolution où il fut vendu à la famille de Foudras.

__Au début du XIX ème siècle, avec l’engouement pour les eaux thermales, Théodore Louis – Auguste de Foudras qui fut entre autres vers 1850, un romancier local de talent, fit analyser les eaux minérales de plusieurs sources situées non loin de son château.
With the approval of the Academy of Medicine, their exploitation was launched and a small hydropathic establisment was even founded. This family will keep Origny till 1909, year when it was sold to the Countess of Grassin whose daughter was murdered on August 7th 1935 at the ground floor of the castle.
__Sombre affaire qui défraya la chronique de l’époque et qui reste à ce jour un mystère. La comtesse vendit en 1938 le domaine à l’évêque Marius Chalve, qui installa en 1939 une communauté de soeurs polonaise, avec l’objectif d’en faire une maison de retraite qui perdura jusqu’en 1958.
__Par la suite Origny devint la propriété de la famille Matt qui s’en sépara en 2007 en la vendant à la famille De Clippel qui a rénové le château pour y ouvrir des chambres d’Hôtes de prestige.

__La région

Château d'Origny is located in Ouches in the Loire close to Roanne.

Bordering on other regions, it offers an amazing richness of tourism, culture, oenology and culinary. It cultivates the art of «good living», elegance and festivities. This is most probably the reason why it is the mother who has raised great names, like Auguste Pralus, creator of the famous brioche «La Praluline».
