….the rebirth of a Renaissance Domain

Aiguevive (or viviers) in cÉnac-et-saint-julien

Aiguevive was first named Domaine de Viviers in 1660, and was then the property of the Labories de Campagne, the Cordis, Sieur de Vivier, and at the initiative of Antoine de Cordis, Chaplain of the King of France, who acquired it in 1612 from Jean de La Borie de Campagne. The History of the domain is originally linked to the operation of mills (wheat and walnut oil) and a deed of sale from the year 1480 allows us to date this then prosperous farm of Domme country.

The Château du Vivier is included on La Carte de BEYLLEME (Belleyme’s Map, 1762-1783) and its construction was dated mid XVIIIth century by several literary sources. The Manor was extended during the First French Empire after it was acquired by Etienne de Mouleydier, as confirmed by a very precise description of its composition and the composition of the domain’s outbuildings. In 1809, it is described as « a master house with a yard and two mills ».
