Château de l’Herm

An autentic site, a marvel of flamboyant architecture

Welcome to the castle of the Harris

The Castle of the Harris , a masterpiece of flamboyant Gothic architecture built between 1500 and 1520 by Jean de Calvimont will be abandoned following numerous crimes.

Eugene Le Roy will place the decor of his novel "Jacquou Le Crunche", adapted for television by Stellio Lorenzi in 1969.

This romantic place "with open heart" is offered to you for an unforgettable discovery and will captivate you with its authenticity.

Thanks to the protection work undertaken since 2000, the castle is now protected and safeguarded. Historical and archaeological research has allowed us to understand the history and chronology of this place in its entirety.
