An authentic knight's guard house at Le Mur, located over the historic Roman Arch. The stone of the arch has a Knight's Templar insignia etched into stone, and an opening for pouring, hot oil or other such noxious concoctions on invading enemies!

O espaço
The Knight's Chamber was an authentic home for the Medieval Knights of Le Mur. The Village of Carentoir (Le Temple) had the largest Knights Templar Head Quarters in Brittany. Le Mur is a historic site dating from pre-Roman times. It was once a Roman Military Camp, then Breton hamlet. The Medieval buildings still exist and have been decorated to help imagine what life would have been like as a Knight of Le Mur. (Chevalier du Mur).

Le Mur' (The wall) is a privately owned estate situated on the highest peak in the surrounding countryside, and is a historic site recognized by the French Government. What was at one time a Medieval hamlet (and still exist today as the Manoir and adjacent out-buildings), was sat along-side the ancient 'Roman Road'.

Historic ruins on the site include a Roman earth berm (wall) built for observation and protection for the Roman soldiers whom utilized the site as a military camp, foundations of a Roman Temple, and a chariot drive. The remains of two medieval forts and moats have also been discovered on the property. Guests can stay at either the ancient Manoir or the 19th Century Chateau.

Located in the bucolic countryside, Le Mur is central to everything Brittany has to offer, from large Medieval towns on both the Channel and Atlantic Coasts, to lovely touristic villages just minutes away. The property can also be rented in its entirety, and can hold up to 50+ guests making it a comfortable place for corporate and family retreats. As guests of Le Mur, enjoy an afternoon picnic under the shade of the ancient Roman Arch (at one time the entry to the hamlet), hike along the numerous wooded paths, romp through fields of wild flowers to feed and play with the miniature pony and Ouessant sheep (the smallest breed of sheep in the world), read a book or simply nap under a canopy of trees in the apple, peach and pear orchards.

Ernie and Terry Monaco, the American owners of Le Mur, will be on-site to assist you with any questions on the area and to make your holiday a carefree, peaceful stay.

The estate consists of a Chateau and 13/14/15th Century Manoir (that has been renovated into 4 furnished apartments), two orchards, fields, gardens, forest, trails, a working dairy farm with cows dotting the hillsides, a Medieval Assembly/multi-purpose room (holds 50), an English library, additional medieval kitchen, a medieval dining room, and of course, the Knight's' Chamber.

Ernie and Terry Monaco, the American owners of Chateau Le Mur, have a had a long history together of joining a romantic, theatric, and creative Spirit. Married for thirty some odd years, (they have now lost count) they have lived a life of adventure traveling the world collecting interesting artifacts and experiences. Having met in Chicago while Ernie was studying Urban Planning, and Terry Graphic Design, they set out to conquer the world. After settling war refugees in Chicago, feeding the homeless in Philadelphia, renovating tumble down houses in California, they finally set out with their two kids to the tiny but wealthy nation of Qatar. While there, Ernie helped design and manage a city on water, and Terry taught at an American University, wrote and directed comedic, musical plays while at the same time together managing a Christian youth group and underground church. They have had the opportunity to travel the world and have met many precious people from all walks of life, learning along the way that life can be extremely wonderful—and at the same time very, very challenging. Therefore they have created Chateau Le Mur to be a magical, peaceful haven from the world, and invite you to come share in what they have created here. From a fairy-like castle filled with treasures collected from all over the globe to the whimsical ‘Rapunzel's Tower’, ‘The Knight’s Chambre’, ‘The Fairy Room’ and ‘The Dark Enchanted Forest’ to the fabled personages who ‘at one time lived in the Manoir’ they've created a place that calls to the child in all of us. Ernie and Terry are fortunate at present to have their daughter, Arianna, and grandson, Tristan, living with them, along with two fluffy cats, one timid scruff of a dog, a gentle miniature pony, and some teeny-tiny sheep.
