What specific architectural features does your building have ?
The oldest building, the logis-porte, was built around 1490 and is classified as a historic monument. It was probably the first chateau to be inhabited. The west wing, which dates back to the 16th century, has all the characteristics of the time: a large tower, arrow slits, a spiral staircase, a parapet walk, drawbridge hooks, Renaissance windows and stone dormers adorned with crockets. Remains of the 17th century moats (which were filled-in in the 19th century) can be found at the entrance to the chateau. The south facade was restored in a neo-renaissance style at the beginning of the 20th century.
Places you would personally recommend
The chateau of Chéronne is located in Tuffé in the Perche Sarthe. A private road connects Chéronne to the centre of Tuffé where guests can explore the church, the priory, the beautifully restored dovecote and the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Tuffé. We recommend a ride along the Transvap tourist railway on the La Chéronne steam train and the walled town of La Ferté-Bernard. The Pescheray Zoo is a paradise for all ages. The city of Le Mans is also must-see with its automobile museum and the twenty-four hour Le Mans circuit.
