About ten years after the end of WW II I was invited back to Paris for a Medals Presentation and the person presenting the medals was a woman, and a leader of the largest Resistance group during the war and was the mother of Jacque Forcade, the owners of this beautiful estate.. Over 500 of her followers were arrested by the Gestapo and executed. She was truly a heroine and was caught twice but escaped both times. There is a lot of history to be found here. Due to this trip I came to know her son, Jacque, and we have visited this beautiful estate several times since.
These were the most memorable of all our trips. English is spoken here and the hospitality is outstanding. The Manoir was built in the fourteenth century and the amenities have been brought up to date. Every aspect of the property is truly outstanding. We will never forget these beauthful surroundings nor our host and hostess.
I am 93 years of age and my wife and I are dreaming of returning for another visit.
