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.

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.

Een prachtig Chateau met vooral heel veel ruimte, zowel binnen als buiten. Heel veel te doen direct in en rond het huisje, zoals Biljart, 3 tafelvoetbaltafels, ping pong tafel, speelkamer met grote verkleedkist, 2 trampolines, tennisbaan en jeu de boules baan. Daarnaast gewoon heel veel ruimte om het Chateau heen.

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.
