If you are in the "Geese Square," [previous tip], then you are right next to Manor de Gisson.
The Manor was built in the 13th century, and is built in two different architectural styles. There are two buildings, that are joined together by a staircase in the hexagon tower!
Have a look inside and out of this building.
Outside, I loved the Tower, the windows, and the very old doorway with a key.
The inside has nice antique furniture, dating back to the Middle Ages and the 17th century. There are displays, torture implement's, huge fireplaces, wood panelling and more!

OPEN....All year round, usually between 10 -5pm and 10-6pm, but check the website, as the times vary with the time of year.

ADMISSION IN 2011....Adults...7euro

We had been to Le Maison Forte de Reignac so this entitled us to 10% discount here.
