Between Normandy and Anjou, the manor of Favry, lodged in a greenery background, is an elegant XV and XVI century mansion (in the process of being designated).
This tall fortified and topped with high roof manor meets architectural models of the end of the Middle Ages with million windows, arrow-slits, musket-slits, skylight with large pediment and parapets.
It is composed with a succession of square pavillons and a tower, crowned with pepperpot style slate roof. the plan is symmetrical and its establishment would date back to the XIV century with lord Guillaume of Favry's vestige in 1301.
The west facade is a perfect exemple of military architecture of a defensive, massive, strict and austere watch, contrary to the East facade, more welcoming and elegant.
The mansion has kept all its authenticity.

The professional formation followed by Chantal Mirabaud, fan of houses, gardens and the art of living, is to embellish your daily life by making it more festive. Now she opens the doors of Favry, with the joy to please you in every moment.
Come to discover this magical and exceptionnal place, restaured by the book!
