The castle remains, in the common perception, an imposing construction, made up of specific elements such as towers, turrets and watchtowers and whose exceptional dimensions distinguish it from ordinary dwellings. It is often surrounded by a park that isolates it from view or, on the contrary, is conspicuously visible from afar and staged by a majestic gate bordered by outbuildings.
The castle, a vestige of our history and of the past of great families, is a concrete and strong element of this past life and is a witness to the know-how of our predecessors in the construction of buildings with a majestic look.
The Brittany and Pays de Loire regions are rich in these remarkable monuments from the medieval, Renaissance, 17th, 18th or 19th century and we wish to highlight their particularities. Fortresses, castles of artists or writers, family castles, or pleasure castles celebrating the sweetness of life, all fascinate us by the stories that they still have to tell us, because they are unique places constituting a framework of extraordinary life.
Less fortified than the castles, the manor, a medium-sized noble house, covered Brittany from medieval times. It was initially the place of life, work and power of an aristocratic family, then the home of notables, shipowners and merchants.
Located in the center of an agricultural estate of varying size, this stone building covered with slate is a majestic building sometimes with defensive elements and often a tower that occupies a staircase. In addition to this residence, there are outbuildings, staff quarters, dovecotes, mills, ovens, fishponds, wells….
