Château de Brou was built in the second half of the 17th century by Paul-Esprit Feydeau, the Royal intendant. Important changes were made in the 18th century including the removal of a monumental staircase in the hall to allow to give more room to the bedrooms on the 1st floor. Instead, two staircases were built on the north side at each corner of the two wings of the castle. The dovecote is probably the oldest building on the property. Built in 1545, it stands on a circular basement with a central pillar. In 1844 the estate was sold due the Feydeau family had no descendants. It was acquired by Charles-Floréal Thiébaut. Since then, Château de Brou has remained in the possession of the same family.

Perfect for a weekend with friends, the setting in the middle of the forest is perfect and the managers of the place very friendly and accommodating.

Nothing to see. We wonder why we call it a castle ...

I contacted the castle for my future wedding. Too bad it is closed because of a work duration 2 years.

Jusqu en 1976 j àchetais du lait de vaches de leur ferme. Cela durai depuis longtemps. Les habitants des cités pendant la guerre s y approvisionnaient

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
