After a lovely lunch at the Auberge du Vieux chateau in St Sauveur le Vicomte, a good number of Anglophones met up in slightly uncertain weather for the guided tour of the 16th and 17th century chateau at Crosville-sur-Douve.
We were shown round by the owner, Michele Lefol, who has been restoring the chateau since 1985. She was absolutely passionate about the chateau and its history, and really enthused us with her love for the place and the work she is doing.
Afterwards we enjoyed a cup of tea and fabulous cakes in the Salon de Thé. For those who were not able to be there on the day, I highly recommend a visit, – if only to the tea room!
Thanks to Jacques for his excellent translation of Michele’s words as we toured the chateau.
