La Motte-Feuilly

La Motte-Feuilly is a very small town (commune) not far from La Châtre.
Only between 33 (2007) and 42 inhabitants (according to recent sources).

In spite of this one have a castle, a church, a horse riding school, a 'Mairie' and even historical connections to the mighty ruler César Borgia.
Borgia married Charlotte d'Albret, 'dame de Chalus' who, as one of her marital 'gifts', got this small town given to her by Borgia.
She is burried in the church where one find her effigy.
