In 1850, the castle was renamed Montrose, as a reference to the colors of the hill at the time of flowering. In 1896, the property was acquired by the Charmolue family, a wealthy family who owns several castles. The castle belonged to this family until 2006, when the Bouygues brothers decided to buy it.
