An authentic knight's guard house at Le Mur, located over the historic Roman Arch. The stone of the arch has a Knight's Templar insignia etched into stone, and an opening for pouring, hot oil or other such noxious concoctions on invading enemies!

Помещението
The Knight's Chamber was an authentic home for the Medieval Knights of Le Mur. The Village of Carentoir (Le Temple) had the largest Knights Templar Head Quarters in Brittany. Le Mur is a historic site dating from pre-Roman times. It was once a Roman Military Camp, then Breton hamlet. The Medieval buildings still exist and have been decorated to help imagine what life would have been like as a Knight of Le Mur. (Chevalier du Mur).

Le Mur' (The wall) is a privately owned estate situated on the highest peak in the surrounding countryside, and is a historic site recognized by the French Government. What was at one time a Medieval hamlet (and still exist today as the Manoir and adjacent out-buildings), was sat along-side the ancient 'Roman Road'.

Historic ruins on the site include a Roman earth berm (wall) built for observation and protection for the Roman soldiers whom utilized the site as a military camp, foundations of a Roman Temple, and a chariot drive. The remains of two medieval forts and moats have also been discovered on the property. Guests can stay at either the ancient Manoir or the 19th Century Chateau.

Located in the bucolic countryside, Le Mur is central to everything Brittany has to offer, from large Medieval towns on both the Channel and Atlantic Coasts, to lovely touristic villages just minutes away. The property can also be rented in its entirety, and can hold up to 50+ guests making it a comfortable place for corporate and family retreats. As guests of Le Mur, enjoy an afternoon picnic under the shade of the ancient Roman Arch (at one time the entry to the hamlet), hike along the numerous wooded paths, romp through fields of wild flowers to feed and play with the miniature pony and Ouessant sheep (the smallest breed of sheep in the world), read a book or simply nap under a canopy of trees in the apple, peach and pear orchards.

Ernie and Terry Monaco, the American owners of Le Mur, will be on-site to assist you with any questions on the area and to make your holiday a carefree, peaceful stay.

The estate consists of a Chateau and 13/14/15th Century Manoir (that has been renovated into 4 furnished apartments), two orchards, fields, gardens, forest, trails, a working dairy farm with cows dotting the hillsides, a Medieval Assembly/multi-purpose room (holds 50), an English library, additional medieval kitchen, a medieval dining room, and of course, the Knight's' Chamber.

Достъп на гостите
The Knight's Chamber has been re-created to reflect what it would be like to stay in a Knight's dwelling in the middle ages. We have installed electric lights for safety, but be aware, the space is not heated. For the comfort of our guests, the knights chamber includes two (sheeted) single and very comfortable beds with bed pillows, and Reindeer and Sheep pelts as very warm bed coverings. There is a rustic table for 6 where you can play chess and board games. The Knight's Chamber holds many books (in English and French) about knights. We ask that you please be careful with the artifacts and costumes so others can enjoy them after you leave.Guests will be given access to a full bathroom with shower, the 'Medieval' kitchen (fully equipped with modern appliances) and the Hunter's Lodge/Dining Room located in an adjacent building in the Manoir where you find numerous board games and access the internet. Manoir du Mus is located on 181 acres of forests, fields and meadows. Remains of a Medieval fort, towers and moats are in the
'Dark Enchanted Forest'. Many trails abound within the forest, including one that was an ancient chariot drive.

Други неща за отбелязване
Situated on the highest hill in the surrounding countryside (a great military advantage when under Roman rule) the views are extraordinary. There is complete and total privacy, and yet the property is located at the center of everything wonderful Brittany has to offer. The owners like to think of Chateau Le Mur and Manoir du Mur as a piece of history that they are temporary caretakers of. They have been fortunate to have spent a lot of time traveling the globe purchasing items with the Chateau and Manoir always in mind. They have literally sent crate-fulls of furniture and artifacts to France from various places they have visited, that have a medieval yet whimsical feel, and in keeping with the themes of the romantic Chateau Le Mur and the medieval Manoir du Mur. We ask when visiting that you please be careful with the Medieval artifacts! Additionally, If a larger group of knights want to stay together at the historic Manoir du Mur, please contact to make arrangements.

Ernie and Terry Monaco, the American owners of Chateau Le Mur, have a had a long history together of joining a romantic, theatric, and creative Spirit. Married for thirty some odd years, (they have now lost count) they have lived a life of adventure traveling the world collecting interesting artifacts and experiences. Having met in Chicago while Ernie was studying Urban Planning, and Terry Graphic Design, they set out to conquer the world. After settling war refugees in Chicago, feeding the homeless in Philadelphia, renovating tumble down houses in California, they finally set out with their two kids to the tiny but wealthy nation of Qatar. While there, Ernie helped design and manage a city on water, and Terry taught at an American University, wrote and directed comedic, musical plays while at the same time together managing a Christian youth group and underground church. They have had the opportunity to travel the world and have met many precious people from all walks of life, learning along the way that life can be extremely wonderful—and at the same time very, very challenging. Therefore they have created Chateau Le Mur to be a magical, peaceful haven from the world, and invite you to come share in what they have created here. From a fairy-like castle filled with treasures collected from all over the globe to the whimsical ‘Rapunzel's Tower’, ‘The Knight’s Chambre’, ‘The Fairy Room’ and ‘The Dark Enchanted Forest’ to the fabled personages who ‘at one time lived in the Manoir’ they've created a place that calls to the child in all of us. Ernie and Terry are fortunate at present to have their daughter, Arianna, and grandson, Tristan, living with them, along with two fluffy cats, one timid scruff of a dog, a gentle miniature pony, and some teeny-tiny sheep.
