Chateau du Bogard.

On Thursday we went to the Chateau du Bogard.

The Chateau goes back to the 15th Century but the present building goes back to just after the French Revolution.

We were lucky to have a lovely sunny day and to be taken round by the owner
who has lived there for over 50 years.

The well at the front of the house.

The view from the back of the manoir.

These two oak trees were planted together to mark a marriage.
Over the many years they have grown together to make one trunk.

One of a pair of door knockers.

Little secret part of the garden.

Carving above an old fireplace.

Part of the mechanism that works the spit.

Part of the buildings used for events.

Rosehips against the old walls.

The family dog who followed us everywhere.

  1. Beautiful photos Diane! This reminds me of a manoir in Ile-et-Vilaine where we were lucky enough to spend a year. You've inspired a blog post, which I've been sorely needing. I'm going on a little trip soon and if I can get pics of numbers, I'll let you know :)
