Château Roudier, family history
In the 19th century, Château Roudier was divided into two parts : one part belonged to Vacher family and the other part belonged to Berthon family.
At the time of Jean Vacher’s death , who was the Major of Montagne during the period 1887 to 1925, his part was acquired by Ernest Berthon. Involved in Montagne, Ernest Bethon was the Major during 1925 to 1929.
