Presentation

The House was built in the 13th century for Guillaume de Hastentot, Henri III Plantagenet's constable, to protect the setting up of the Antonin Friars. It is a real fortified house which still has its impressive buttresses and the remains of a watch tower.
An integral part of the commander's residence, it was used as a hospital until the 18th century before the Malta Order acquired it.
Sold as « national property » during the revolution, it underwent major transformations during the 19th century and stayed in the same family until the mid-20th century.
Home of the writer Roger Boussinot for fifteen years or so ( author among others of 'Marie-Jeanne des Bernis ' and 'Des enfants dans les arbres'), it was bought in 2004 by a painter and decorator who, after important restoration work, added numerous frescoes and décor inside.
