A 13th century Dauphine castle, registered on the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments, the Château Teyssier de Savy sits in 7-hectares where the sunlight plays with the shade of century-old lime trees.
An architectural heritage consisting of a group of buildings harmoniously distributed around a courtyard that create a picturesque silhouette above the old village of Saint Chef. A fine and inspirational chapel, bathed in the light that filters through the 1869 stained glass is perfect for meditation. There are numerous links with the abbey. Visits to the park, the architectural ensemble, the inner courtyard, and the chapel, harmoniously distributed around an inner courtyard. Architecture from the 11th to the 17th century. The chapel is a jewel richly decorated with murals and stained glass windows, dating from 1869.

Burned as an act of revenge in 1403, the Old Castle was restored. Today only the big round 11th century tower and the Tour du Poulet remain from the original period.

This castle belonged to the family of Jacques Joffrey, the squire of Chevalier Bayard. The building has changed and expanded over the centuries. With its rough stone walls, high roofs, various Romanesque towers, the Château de Saint-Chef, more commonly known as Château Teyssier de Savy, creates a picturesque silhouette in the old medieval village. It sits in a rural setting of 6.8 hectares where the sunlight plays with the shade of century-old lime trees.
