The chateau is surrounded by a deep moat. Entry was only via a draw bridge.

Under the chateau are rooms carved from the limestone rock underlying it.
An entry way into the subterranean spaces under the chateau.
A winery with casks is in the "basement."
The subterranean spaces were also used for protection from invaders — similar to the underground homes of the Troglodytes featured in the Troglodyte Village section of this album.
Vat for making wine.
