Château des Rochers-Sévigné

Vitré, France

Les Rochers was the estate of the Mathefelon family from the 12th century, before being passed by marriage to the Sévigné family in 1410. The family rebuilt the château in the early 16th century. Between 1644 and 1690, Madame de Sévigné stayed here and refurnished the house. She gave names to the paths through the gardens and in 1689 her son commis-sioned the French Gardens from Le Nôtre. In 1715, the Nétumières family bought the estate and carried out building and restoration works. Today there is a visitor centre at the 17th century Orangerie and exhibition about Madame de Sévigné and the Château des Rochers.

Dommage pour le praticien en pente.

Je n'ai pas joué au golf, j'ai juste pris un café avec des amis à la terrasse du club à l'occasion d'une reconnaissance de randonnée autour des étangs. Le cadre est magnifique, et l'accueil du personnel de l'établissement ainsi que des clients présents a été très sympathique.

Lieu Magnifique. Golf au pied du château de madame de sevigné. Vous êtes accueilli par une équipe souriante et passionné.

J'y joue depuis plus de 10 ans et c'est toujours un réel plaisir d'y revenir , persuadé que faire la route depuis Rennes se justifie pleinement. Superbe parcours, tournant autour du château de Madame de Sévigné, technique mais abordable, avec très souvent une sensation d'être seul au monde,permettant de profiter pleinement de l'instant. L'accueil y est simple et agréable dans une ancienne écurie donnant énormément de cachet à l'ensemble. Très beau practice le long d'une muraille du château. N'ayant pas déjeuné au restaurant depuis très longtemps, je me garde de donner un avis.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
