Castle Bizy castle

Put up in 1741, Bizy is called "the little Versailles of Normandy"! You will see that by yourself...

Famous French notes writer Saint-Simon said the castle was raised for a "son of France"...

Duke of Penthièvre, who inherited Bizy in 1775, but also Louis XV and Louis-Philip came many times...

Baron Schickler put up the current castle in the 19th century (the former one was destroyed during the French Revolution).

From that moment, Bizy, surrounding by sumptuous stables, lively water pools, waterfalls, fountains, found second wind!
