Château Roudier was divided into two parts in the 19th century: one belonged to the Vacher family and the other part belonged to the Berthon family.
On the death of Jean Vacher, mayor of the commune of Montage from 1887 to 1925, Ernest Berthon bought the other part in order to unify Château Roudier. Invested in the commune of Montagne, Ernest Berthon was mayor from 1925 to 1929.
Following him, Roger CAPDEMOURLIN, his son-in-law, operated the property for around thirty years. An expert surveyor by trade, he took over from his father-in-law and became involved in property.
