Ruins of a bygone era...

Ruins of a bygone era...
The ruines of "BOIS-FROU", stand alone among the meadows that once were sumptuous gardens, now they open the doors of imagination to restore a disappeared mansion...

The origins of this castle date back to the 14th century, then transformed into a Renaissance style castle after the 100 Years War. At this time it was decorated with beautiful water gardens.

During works in 1966, two sarcophagi are discovered, one of which contains an embalmed heart!

Ich denke in Frankreich gäbe es viel zu entdecken, wenn da nicht die Sprachbarriere wäre.

Danke Jens,oh ja, hier gibt es in jeder Region für jeden etwas : entweder die weltbekannten Orte, oder kleine Sehenswürdigkeiten wie diese, über das ganze Land verstreut. Übrigens, man braucht nicht viel Französich-Kenntnisse, wenn man nur zum besuchen, entdecken und fotografieren rüber kommt. In den grösseren Hotels kann jeder englisch, und ansonsten kann man sich leicht "durch wurschteln"....

amazing history, why was destroyed (second WW?)
6 months ago.
Christa1004 club has replied to Mario Vargas club
Thanks Mario, oh no, it's a long time already, I think it was since the 17th century that the castle slowly decayed. Why exactly I don't know. Anyway, it's a pity, but I suppose it was too expensive to keep it in good condition...

Tu connais sûrement, Thierry, un des trois châteaux à Lassay. Et le cadrage - oui, en effet, j'ai "coupé" la ferme sur la gauche ;-)

J'adore les vieilles pierres, elles ont une histoire, voire même un mystère comme ce coeur embaumé qui a été retrouvé. Peut-être saurons nous un jour à qui il appartenait ! Certainement quelqu'un d'important de la haute noblesse ou une personne royale ???
Dur de rester enfermée, mais je l'étais déjà l'année dernière, alors je suis habituée !!! LOL !
Bonne journée à toi et reste prudente, Christa !! Bisous !

Christa1004 club has replied to Marie-claire Gallet club
Merci Marie-Claire. Moi aussi, j'adore ces vieilles pierres qui pourraient raconter plein d'histoires. En ce qui concerne le coeur embaumé, je crois que l'on a jamais su à qui il appartenait, le mystère reste entier !
Actuellement, c'est vraiment la chance d'avoir une maison en pleine campagne avec un grand jardin, le travail ne manque pas (hier j'ai passé la tondeuse). Je pense bien à toi, prends soin de toi. Grosses bises.

Christa1004 club has replied to Peter Castell club
Thanks Peter, that would be really great. I do not know if it is possible, because today the ruins and the meadows are part of a farm. They allow people to visit, but normally there are cows grazing between the ruins...

Hi Christa

A very nice picture, but rather sad that I won't be able to visit there for a while now.
It would have been so nice!

Best Wishes, and a nice weekend - but stay safe!!

Thanks Carol, I think so too. I have already searched if I could not find a picture of this castle in its heyday, but unfortunately not! Keep well.
