History

The Manoir de la Baronnie has been constructed at the end of the 17th century by a powerful ship-owner. This huge residence then belonged to Pierre-François Meslé de Grandclos, one of the richest trader in the region during the 18th century.
 

Requisitioned during the Revolution, this manor was about to be destroyed and stayed a couple of decennies uninhabited. Restaured by the actual owners, Benoît et Sophie Laude, La Baronnie still present wonderful attributes from glorious past times : nice woodworks (Louis XV style) and some amazing stairs classified as a treasure of the architectural patrimoine of the region.

* Les Malouinières :

The first owners were running their businesses in the old town and could quickly reach the manor by horse riding. They were then enjoying to have a rest in this peaceful place and were organizing sumptuous receptions with all important people from the region. Having a walk in the park was one the favourite leisure at that time.
