Last weekend were the 'Journées du Patrimoine' as they are called here. This is a European wide event held the third weekend in September. All over the country historical sites hold an 'open house': sites both publically and privately owned --many normally not open to the public-- open their doors. Last year we visited the Chartreuse du Liget and its chapel. You can read about that here.

Located right in the heart of the village St Cyr en Bourg, Domaine de Nerleux is run by Amélie and Régis Neau. Nerleux means black wolves in old French and these animals grace their logo.
