Could this be your chance to take part in a piece of history that has been the home to so many families over a period of nearly one thousand years? The original chateau was demolished in the 1740’s to make way for a new one unfortunately this second one succumbed to the revolution in 1793.

There is a connection to the Lafayette family. Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roche Gilbert du Motier Marquis de Lafayette, in the United States often known simply as Lafayette, was a French aristocrat and military officer who fought in the American Revolutionary War. He died May 20th 1834 and is buried in Picpus Cemetery, Paris which is in the 8th arrondissement.
The Manoir was built after this period so dates from the early 1740’s and used much of the original materials from the demolished chateau but the chateau’s tunnels although blocked now still exist under the former site. One tunnel is supposed to be two kilometres long that leads to another former chateau but who knows, this has to be disproven.
The hunting lodge dates back to 1858
The most recent history of the ‘Le Marques’ surrounds World War II when it was occupied by the Germans as a victualling centre for the area. Field Marshall Rommel held dinner parties here during his six months in the area. The living room of the main house was the scene for the wedding feast in Brittany’s most famous film “Pecheurs d’Islande” (Iceland Fishermen) based on Pierre Loti’s greatest novel according to critics.
