Built in the 17th century, it will remain the property of the family of the same name until 1983, when the municipality will acquire it.
Located on the Richard the Lionheart route, it is a must-see site due to its rich history and traces of its equestrian past. From the creation of the stud farm in the 16th century to the arrival of Annie Fratellini’s circus in the 70s, a visit rich in stories and anecdotes not to be missed! Exceptionally open to visitors.
