Blankenfelde Manor

Blankenfelde, Latvia

The first written record of the Blankenfelde manor dates from 1689 when the owner was Ernst von Medem. The estate changed owners several times and was part of the von Hahnide family from 1840 until 1920. Between 1804 and 1805 the manor belonged to the Russian imperial house of Andreas von Königfelsile. Louis XVIII, King of France, lived in Blankenfelde manor for a while when he was in exile.

The complex structure of the manor dates from the mid 18th century, and the main building erected in 1743 has a 19th-century English-style park. There are currently ideas for the exploration of the estate in the concept of private ownership and tourism. The renovation work of the main building is now underway. Blankenfelde estate flower garden is part of the spring tulbifestivale.

Blankenfeldes muižā man patika tikai zvanu muzejs. Diemžēl, var redzēt, ka īpašumā netieka nekas daudz investēts. Bijam vienā no muižas mājām, tur ķirmji jau bija sākuši ēst grīdu :( Ir iespējams tikt pie vīna degustācija, kas man tā ne visai garšja (gaumes lieta), bet plūškoka ziedu sīrups ar piparmētru bija labs... Vasarā tur noteikti ir forši uz parku aizbraukt - tur bērniem ir vairāka atrakcijas un laukumiņi pa kuriem izskraidīties

Blankemfeldes muižas vēsture. Muižas ēkas celtas 18. gadsimta vidū, pašreizējo izskatu ieguvušas 19. gadsimta sākumā. Pirmo reizi Blankemfeldes muiža pieminēta 1462. gadā 6. martā, kad zemi Vācu ordeņa mestrs Johans fon Mengele izlēņoja Klausam fon Medemam. 1993. gadā Blankemfeldes muižu nopirka pēdējo muižas vācu īpašnieku Hānu mazmeita Adīna fon Bernevica, kurā līdz 2007. gadam ieguldīja darbu muižas atjaunošanā. Kopš 2007. gada īpašnieks ir Valdis Jākabsons.

Unfortunately an isolated location but worth a visit. Contains an excellent bell museum with a large number of different bells.

Historic Village of Olargues

Olargues is a good example of a French medieval town and rated as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It was occupied by the Romans, the Vandals and the Visigoths. At the end of the 11th century the Jaur valley came under the authority of the Château of the Viscount of Minerve. The following centuries saw a succession of wars and epidemics, and it was not until the 18th century that Olargues became re-established. This was due to the prosperity of local agriculture and artisanal industry.

The Pont du Diable, 'Devil's Bridge', is said to date back to 1202 and is reputed to be the scene of transactions between the people of Olargues and the devil. The old village is clustered around the belltower, which was formerly the main tower of the castle (Romanesque construction). The old shops have marble frontages and overhanging upper storeys. A museum of popular traditions and art is to be found in the stairs of the Commanderie.
