The weather has been more clement this last week, and a couple days ago I went to visit this lovely castle, near Lisieux where I had been before, but without a camera.
A small XV-XVI century castle with a moat
A beautiful place, complete with a small park
Looking over the park
This is how the checkered effect is made
All the bricks come from Pays d’Auge
And the moat wouldn’t be complete without a family of swans, would it!
She kept her foot out for the longest time… I wonder why
It’s nice to get into the castle, but except for the first room, which has some amazing frescoes, the rest of the place has been filled with all sorts of things, mostly bits left by the former owner, who left the castle and its contents to the town of Lisieux.
But the castle itself and the gardens are just beautiful.
