Château - Villers-la-Faye
Heritage from Villers-la-Faye
The 15th-century-castle of Villers-la-Faye was protected by moats which are now filled, and it had 4 circular towers. Only one remains. In the wonderful courtyard, there is a well surrounded by a paving « en hérisson » (stones raised verticaly) to keep feets dry. An half-timbered galery offers a comfortable passage. Originally, it was made with uncovered bricks. That was a sign of richness (because the material wasn’t local).
In the south-east corner of the property, an original tree « Fatsia Japonica », late blosoming (black berries in winter). Its dark green leaves are very lobed. This aralia, well known to be an interior plant is here in ground in a protected place.
