Art and history – my bliss! This weekend the privately owned 15th century, Chateau de Thard opened it’s doors as part of Les Journèes Europeènes du Patrimoine.
The heritage weekend takes place the third weekend of September across France. Each year there is a theme and this year’s was Patrimoine et citoyennetè. Public offices, monuments, historical sites, churches and chateaux open their doors to the public for a visit behind the scenes.
Chateau de Thard, a joli petit manoir, near Onlay proved to be a hidden treasure. We drove up a long drive hidden in the woods, which opened out to amazing views high above Onlay.
