Beaumesnil Manor: discover the art of booking binding
Close to Ferrière-sur-Risle, a charming village nestled among the river valley cliffs, the Château of Beaumesnil stands resplendent in its natural setting. Built at the beginning of the 17th century, this masterpiece of the Louis XIII style, surrounded by a moat, has its façade reflected off the water of the pools of the formal garden that surrounds it. 80 hectares of parkland completes the estate. In addition to the originality of its baroque style, this exceptional monument, magnificently decorated and furnished, possesses an impressive library. There is a unique exhibition dedicated to book binding.
