Château de Saint-Gervais

Asnières, France

The first record of Château de Saint-Gervais dates back to the year 1198. In 1651 Jean de Carrey, Advisor to the King in his finance chamber, acquires the titles of Lord of Saint Gervais. The destruction of the original chateau occured at the time of the Revolution (1794). In 1837 the land and property at Saint Gervais was acquired by Michel Pierre Alexis Hebert, barrister in the High Court subsequent Garde des Sceaux in the Ministry of Justice in 1847. He later became a Deputy at Pont Audemer and Chief Counsellor of the Eure region. This ancestor of our current family was responsible for building the chateau that is on site today. The current castle and other buildings were built in two phases in the 19th century. The two-storey square mansion was completed in 1840. The tower was built in 1891.

We were received very friendly. The chateau is very atmospheric and spacious. The children enjoyed themselves in the play rooms and outside on the tennis court. The kitchen is small, but was renovated and enlarged after our departure. The area is beautiful and very varied.

Juste parfait. Nous avons louer la maison plus un autre gite pour 4 jours. Nos amis ont apprécié le charme du lieu et le confort du château. Nous avons profité de la cheminée, du parc, du terrain de tennis. Les enfants ont été enchantés d'avoir un étage juste pour eux avec les baby-foot, la table de ping-pong et la salle de jeux. Bref, un super week-end pour tous. Merci. Les propriétaires ainsi que le gardien ont également été parfaits, de la disponibilité et du conseil, rien à dire, un grand merci.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
