You'll love ! 

  • Jeanne's house
  • a recreation of the church
  • the French garden 

On the road frontage, stop to look at some beautiful mullioned windows.

In the (French) garden you can still see  the stages of construction of the house and the well and the pigeon loft, the prerogative of all noble houses.

In the octagonal tower  connecting the two wings of the house there is a superb spiral stairway in dressed stone welcoming you to your visit.
