The Château de Carrouges remained in the ownership of a single family from its construction until 1936. Steeped in history, it features a superb collection of furniture from the Renaissance to the early 19th century and has retained all the charms of a family residence with portraits of the successive generations of the Le Veneur family. Carrouges is remarkable for its long, pale brick walls, steep slate roofs and granite window and door frames. It stands in 10 hectares of carefully tended grounds with gardens, flowering borders and impeccable terraces.

This French chateau has a gate house that's not only symmetrical, it's really gorgeous. You are then led to a real moat surrounding the chateau itself and the surrounding gardens are a place where you will use your camera extensively. I suggest you get the guidebook if you are fluent in French as the guided tour is conducted in French and you will learn a lot about the chateau from the guide. They have them in several languages. If you are not familiar with French get the guidebook as it make your time more enjoyable. ou will see how the generations cared for the place and added as the country and the people's taste changed with the times. Be prepared to spend several hours touring the chateau and the grounds . The guide book will also inform you how the chateau is being upgraded in the past and what the plane are for the future. We really enjoyed our time here and look forward to visa-iting again.

Standing on Hill 262 looking across the Falaise lowlands makes the atmosphere of this museum an unforgettable tribute to all who died in this dreadful battle, whatever their nationality. The madness of warfare, and we never learn.
