DAY OUT

MORNING AT CHATEAU

We drove to Le château Le Rocher Portail, which is a private property and known as the Downtown Abbey of Brittany! It has been open to the public since 2017 and they are busy reconstructing the gardens with a walled garden with

vegetable plots, herbaceous borders, espalier fruit trees, and a water feature – there were also a couple of peacocks in an aviary there.

Outside this was a lovely story corner in the woods themed Alice in  Wonderland, and a little enclosure of the cutest baby long-haired New Zealand dwarf rabbits. (perhaps straight out of Alice!) They have also planted a parterre with 4 labyrinths, and other areas with colourful sculptures which will vary from time to time. An art exhibition was also on display in the refurbished stables area. It is a beautiful chateau with a chapel in good condition, a banquet hall, and all the furnishings are original, and there is a secret passage off the main bedchamber…..
