The chateau's history is rich and varied. Chateau St. Philippe was originally built as a priory by the Benedictine monks in1032-1033. Its name, St. Philippe de la Porte, literally meaning St. Philippe of the door, was condensed to its current title: St. Philippe. Since its construction, the priory was transformed into a chateau by Barron Charles-Albert Favier du Noyer in 1828. After his renovation, the chateau changed hands three times before settling into the hands of its current American owners, who have completely restored the castle, preserving its architectural integrity while bringing a modern charm to its atmosphere. Chateau St. Philippe has undergone many changes in its long history since construction began in 1032.
