A super lovely place to end our holiday!

We stayed at the Chateau for two nights in September of 2018 and the experience was lovely. La Pommeraye is a beautiful French Manor house, out in the Swiss Normandy countryside. The decoration of the house was stunning with art work comfort. The owner was a great host and you got a feeling of being his guest instead of being in a hotel. Very recommended, peaceful luxury, you will not regret it!

We stayed at this exquisite property for three nights. The accommodations and the architecture were exquisite; the service was impeccable, and the food warranted the highest Michelin rating. Proprietor and gourmand chef, Alexandre Boudnikoff, made our time there one of the best experiences we have ever had anywhere in the world and we would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a refined experience in a serene country setting.

Stunning location, beautifully restored chateau. We had the most marvellous stay in sumptuous rooms. The immaculate accommodation was matched by the friendly welcome. Highly recommended. Already planning a return visit.

We had a wonderful stay at Chateau de la Pommeraye. The chateau is beautifully renovated and decorated - it is clear a lot of love has been put into it. The bathtub in our room was enormous and the perfect way to end a long day touring Mont St. Michel and Granville. Alexandre recommended great restaurants and the breakfasts were delicious, but our favorite meal was the late dinner Alexandre made us after we were delayed due to traffic on our way from Paris to the chateau. Highly recommend.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
