Château de la Ballue

Bazouges-la-Pérouse, France

The current Château de la Ballue was built by Gilles de Ruellan in 1620 and renovated in 1705. In the 19th century there was a glass factory. The highlight of any stay at the castle will be tea and a guided tour of those magnificent gardens.

Superior place. Finally a place that respects itself AND its customers. Best value for money I had in a long time. Totally recommended.

We could have wept when we departed this beautiful home. We stayed in the Perse bedroom suite which was perfection with fabric walls, the most comfortable bed and a generous bath. The gardens are astonishing, the swimming pool was heaven. It was so peaceful. Bird song lulled me to sleep on the sun lounger. Victor and Tio, sons of the owners where so very charming. So kind, so helpful, so exceptional. The breakfast (made and served by the very lovely Marie) included pastries of a standard we have never tasted on our many visits to France. This is an exceptional establishment. Did we mention tea and cake in the orangery when we arrive? You will have missed something extraordinary if you do not visit this place. Cannot recommend more highly. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

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.
