The Château de Ravel is a castle situated in the commune
of Ravel, in the département of Puy-de-Dôme, France.
The castle of Revel was begun by Bernard de Revel, noted in 1171.
Purchased by Philip III of France in 1283, it was given by Philip
IV to his future chancellor, Pierre Flotte. It passed by marriage
and inheritance to the d'Estaing family, by the marriage of the
heiress Marie Comborcier du Terrail with her cousin Jean d'Estaing,
1647. The interiors were renovated in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Privately-owned, the Château de Ravel is listed as a monument
historique by the French Ministry of Culture
