Saturday, April 14
Appointment is given not far from the hotel where we will spend the two days. Patrick has found a parking lot for us where anyone can have a picnic.
The afternoon is devoted to the visit of Orléans. We reach a tramway park to go to the city centre. 5 guides await us to show us around Orléans.
From the Place du Martroi where the statue of Joan of Arc on horseback stands to the Cathedral of Sainte-Croix, passing by the renaissance district, well restored, the afternoon is a beautiful journey of health. We will also have the privilege of descending under the Matroi Square through a little-known passage of the Orleans themselves, in order to discover the remains of the medieval enclosure of the old town.
Proud of its past and dynamic by its projects and ambitions, the town hall has been committed in recent years to a policy of promoting its heritage.
Sunday, April 15
This year, the general assembly takes place on Sunday morning. While the men attend the assessment and prospects of the association, the women and children take the road to the Château de Chamerolles. Built at the dawn of the Renaissance by Lancelot 1st of the Lake, according to the plans of a medieval fortress, Chamerolles stands its towers in the heart of a land of ponds, in the heart of Beauce and Gâtine.
In the 17th century, it was a major centre of Protestantism, before being converted to a more residential vocation. Owned by the Loiret County Council since 1987, Chamerolles and its Renaissance garden, which had fallen into a slow abandonment, have been completely restored.
Through an exhibition, it is an opportunity to discover the organ with its scents, which brings together some 270 bottles of various essences, the combination of which will give birth to a new perfume.
Everyone will meet around 1pm for the lunch that will close this stay.
