The Saint-Christophe mansion is lost in the wilderness. An ideal place to discover a magical world: the Holy Grail and Merlin. Several botanical gardens like no other (sacred herbs of the Middle Ages) are also to be discovered. The lair of Merlin is filled with vials and other magical products, the lair of the witch and mysterious cupboards full of secrets are presented … You may enjoy a glass hypocras at the tavern of the mansion, unless you’re tempted by some syrup coquelicot. “My grandfather was deputy mayor of Craon in 1954. He had passed down to me two cabinets, including a magical one, “says Pierre Lemonnier. In a newspaper of the time, a mysterious treasure is mentioned hidden at the foot of a tower.
