Cheminee is the modern French term for fireplace, although in past references it has also been defined as meaning a chimney or a fireplace surround.
The main building material was “Pierre de Chazelles” (stone of Chazelles), a fine quality golden stone, similar to high-density limestone mined in Chazelles.
It is worth noting at this point, that some of the artisans who labored on the Chateau were the ancestors of the present stone carvers of the fireplace surrounds, employed by Chazelles today.
The village of Chazelles is located in Charente, of the French region Poitou-Charentes, part of the Angouleme district, and is only 20 km from another Chateau d’Angouleme, inherited by Francis I. Francis was born near Cognac in 1494 and was Count of Angouleme.
He decided to restore the Chateau d’Angouleme also using the Chazelles stone. The major building was undertaken over many years including extensions featuring the Renaissance influences of the time.
