    Jourde-Castori Travels.

    by belgianchocolate Updated Aug 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing:
    There are two floors in the castle.
    The upper floor is used as a sort of exhibit
    of the people who lived here.
    One can see letters , pictures , and stuff they
    used during their lifetime.

    The ground floor is left as if they still lived there.
    It shows the paintings of the lady of the house.
    The furniture they collected from there travels
    but also valueable pieces from different countries.

    Fondest memory:
    Paul et Hélène travel round the world.
    In 1930 they discover the animal deer forest
    of the Maharadja de Kutch.
    That inspired them.
    They decided to create a little paradise for
    animals round their castle in France.
    The animals had to life in semi-freedom.
    That was their spirit. (and I hope they
    maintain this philosophy)


    One of the nicest things you can see during the
    guided tour is this travel equipment.
    No , they most definitely were not
    backpackers. An impressive suit case
    with a beautifull dress of Hélène.

    Were they VT'rs before the internet was there?

    H?l?ne Jourde-Castori

    by belgianchocolate Updated Aug 5, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing:
    One of the nicest things we did was taking
    the guided tour at the castle.
    There were only 3 of us that were interested
    so plenty of attention from the very friendly
    lady that guided us around.

    The nice thing about the castle is that it isn't
    filled by a conservator or curator that bought
    furniture and paintings at one or another auction.
    It is filled with the memories of
    the habitants of the castle.
    So it also tells you the story about the
    foundation of the zoo.

    In the picture you can see H?l?ne Jourde.
    The last lady who lived here.
    She was a painter and you can admire her
    paintings . She even made it to the
    Metropolitan museum in New York.
    She died in 1988.

    Fondest memory:
    The castle can only be visited in July and August
    and you'll have to pay 3 euro's extra with
    the entrance fee from the zoo.

    The weather?

    Favorite thing:
    The weather seems to be very important
    to everybode. And certainly for this area it
    is because there is little or few activities
    that are inside.

    Muzillac it the town near 'Le guerno' and they are
    so nice to put up this meteo-page for us.

    Have a look here!

    Fondest memory:
    We had excellent weather...
    Blue skies , happy cows ,
    people in a good mood...lol
