Visit of the castle by its owner who welcomed us very well. He loves his place and tells a thousand anecdotes of his family. Presence of a multitude of objects having belonged to his ancestors. Note that a wing is rented and restored by Chanel for its presentations.

Very beautiful residence, isolated in the middle of the fields !! but which has charm, and the history of the residence is interesting.... Good visit to you now!

Private 17th century chateau. Particular in the sense that this one is designed a bit like a Chartreuse with a central garden. The building is made up of several wings. A part is restored and rented by Chanel for its presentations. Very stylish. The old part of the castle is a set of rooms with a heap of family objects which sometimes clutter the rooms which loses its charm. Some lights are reviewed. But the visit remains very pleasant. Too bad the beautiful garden in front is not accessible every day!! It is independent of the castle.

Château avec une disposition italienne autour d'une cour et d'une promenade protégée. Des pièces dans leur jus. Visite intéressante un peu longuette. Mais très beau site à visiter pour encourager les propriétaires à préserver le patrimoine.

Very nice discovery. Since the place has always been in the same family, the furniture is very well furnished. The guide, who is also the owner, will make your visit wonderfully. Good visit

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
