Chateau Durantey was once the palatial home of Marashal Bugeaud, the Duke of d’Isly, and was given to him as a token of appreciation for his dedication to France. Duke d’Isly served under Napoloen and is famed for plotting the victorious Algerian war in 1836. A host of statues and landmarks dedicated to the Duke can be found throughout France.
