La Roche-Guyon castle

La Roche-Guyon


Leaned since the Middle Ages in the cliff of chalk, this former fortress metamorphosed in the course of the centuries.

Overhanging the village of Roche-Guyon, built in a meander of the Seine on the border of Normandy, the castle belongs to the family of La Rochefoucauld. Completely reconstructed, enlarged and embellished in the XVIIIth century, the castle, leaned in the cliff is connected with the medieval donjon which dominates him by an underground passage dug in the rock. Famous for his history, general Rommel had established his districts during the Second World War there.

His magnificent kitchen garden of 3 hectares, carefully restored according to the original plans of the XVIIIth century produced by vegetables and on-the-spot sold biological fruits.

First troglodytic spaces in the experimental kitchen garden of the Lights, the lounges of splendor in bunkers fitted out by Rommel, the castle proposes to his visitors a strange journey in the time as Edgar p. Jacobs had imagined him with the chronoscaphe of the famous "Devilish trap" situated exactly in Roche-Guyon.
