in the Franche Comté-Burgundy region
More than a place:…. a history, a dream and a way of living
But possibly slightly bonkers,
Began one day to restore this ancient 18th century mansion.
He did it alone,
By the spirit of Sophie Monnier,
The mistress of the famous French writer,
meticulously decorated bedrooms furnished with elegant fabrics; a park with more than two hundred old fashioned rose bushes and carefully pruned box shrubs; centuries old trees, and a river running through the midst of the scene,……all these combine to lift you out of the present into a world of contemplation of life`s abiding values.
