What specific architectural features does your building have ?
The Manoir de Vacheresses has all the attributes of the seigneuries that were built towards the end of the Middle Ages. Built on a rectangular plot, the main house (which has an impressive spiral staircase) is surrounded by agricultural outbuildings on its grounds. The porch at the entrance is guarded by two towers on either side (conical on the outside with cut sections on the inside) though they have a more decorative than military feel. If there were any doubt, the dovecote, the woods, the warren, the orchard, the pastureland and the stream all testify to this being a seigniorial site.
Places you would personally recommend
The Ferme du Bois Richeux, which is one of the oldest in France, is a must-see – it has a Medieval garden and was once owned by Madame de Maintenon. Closer by is Chrysalide in Chartres, a florist that we often work with.
