The Hermitage

This Norman manor out of stones and timbers was initially built in the 17th Century.

But the story has it that the king Saint Louis came to this remote place to pray when he stayed at Vernon, and that he founded a monastery here as early as 1260.

The wall enclosed garden testifies of the previous religious use of the property.

The building was in ruins when Ariane and Alain bought it a few years ago.

They have been spending their free time restoring it ever since, favouring the use of ancient or traditional materials to preserve its authenticity.
