An alliance between Middle Ages, Renaissance and Classicism

In Normandy, between Alençon and Domfront, in the vicinity of the Château de Saint-Paterne, stands the impressive Château de Carrouges, “monument national”. Built between the 14th and 17th centuries, this magnificent castle of brick and granite, successfully combines a defensive medieval architecture, the Renaissance elegance and the sobriety of the classic era. The park, with groves, terraces and perfectly kept flower-beds, features remarkable age-old iron works. The furnished apartments have kept the true charm of the beautiful mansions of the past.
