LE BREUIL: The Hameaux du Lac visited the Guédelon castle

As planned at the general meeting in January, the members of the Hameaux du Lac association went to visit the Guédelon castle under construction. This is the third visit in 21 years! Indeed, the first visit by the association dates back to 2003. At that time, only the foundations existed. “We could already guess the importance of the construction…” explained the president José Pérez. The day visitors expressed the wish to return 10 years later, so in 2013 all these people met again on the site. The construction had progressed a lot since the tower that was to become the master’s bedroom was built, as well as the main room. Once again the members wished to return 10 years later, but in 2023, this was forgotten by all and as one must always make one’s wishes come true, the trip was made on July 7, 2024 by 44 people of all ages. The construction progress is considerable since the main entrance is completed with its 2 towers, the decoration of the master’s bedroom is finished, the chapel is built and decorated and many other works are done… “The visit to the educational workshops is very interesting and instructive. The stonemasons, carpenters, blacksmiths, ropemakers, do not hesitate to explain their profession with passion and to answer all the questions of the public..”. In addition, luck accompanied the Brogéliens with a beautiful sunny day. On the way back, as a reward, everyone found themselves in a wine estate in Saint-Jean de Trézy for a tasting. The warm welcome from the winegrowers ended this beautiful friendly day that everyone appreciated.
