A vast quadrilateral of about 60 metres on each side as the seat of a 17th century landed seigneury - Listed monument - Privately owned.
The seat of a landed seigneury, this vast quadrilateral of approximately 60 metres on each side dates largely from the second half of the 17th century.
Built of limestone rubble, it is bounded from the outset by a moat. Access is via a tower-porch whose gate is framed by the rebate of an old drawbridge.
The symmetry of the ensemble indicates a particular attention to detail, favouring the functionality of the farm over the pomp and circumstance.
The castle-farm of Ny marks the apogee of a typology rooted in the Middle Ages. Later, at the beginning of the 18th century, the castles were freed from their defences and moved away from the farm to become largely glazed pleasure residences, open to the gardens.
