Difficult to describe such a place: In this castle of the XIII, the time stopped. We sit there, we cook together in the kitchen tower, we breakfast on the chairs in front of the large stone fireplace.
Nature enters from everywhere through the windows and the house lives in the peaceful rhythm of ancient times.
The small castle of Cornou is a serene and unique place. Its buildings are framed by a walled courtyard and a large orchard, vegetable garden.
Through the windows, the songs of birds penetrate in all the rooms. The sun's rays project the graceful swinging of the branches on the interior walls throughout the day. Like all houses with stone walls, the house remains fresh and fragrant in summer, warm and intimate in winter.
In the maze of rooms and stairs, you will find books of arts, stories, cookbooks, pictures, many ancient toys full of poetry. And lots of little quiet corners to discuss everything and nothing and forget everything else.
