The La Chalotais case: a plot in Brittany?
This castle is nicknamed "little Versailles". The man who raised it really knew Versailles, as many Breton lords at that time.
His name was Anne-Nicolas de Caradeuc, Brittany's Parliament counsellor. His son, Louis-René de Caradeuc de La Chalotais owned the castle. Louis-René was king's general procurer.
Our Regency castle, with its long fronts flanked by a detached house on one side, faces a vast formal garden.
The park was re-laid out in 1890 by French landscape gardener Edouard André: we can see Diane's border, the Emperor's roundabout, Falloux’s alley...'
