A frame of dream

Although the Chateau's address is 'Rue de la Gare'(Station Road), it's a long time since any trains have passed through ! Now peace and tranquillity is the order of the day.

Architecture buffs will be keen to admire the building. If the roadside aspect may seem a little austere, the façade overlooking the grounds is magnificent. Typical of the 19th century, the Chateau was built at the beginning, in 1812. The main body of the building is embellished with four Corinthian columns which frame three French windows on the ground floor and three windows with balconies on the first floor. These columns support a triangular pediment in the Greek style. In the centre is a clock and on each side reliefs depicting the abundance of the orchards. To the right and left ends of the building stand, we can see two wings projecting a little whith angles in bossage. The roofs are independent of the central body.

Nature lovers will enjoy the 125 acres of grounds and orchards where fruits are grown organically. During different seasons, along the rural tracks, you can enjoy strawberries, raspberries, cherries or apples. Roedeer and squirrels venture close to the Chateau, much to the delight of guests, who, with a little luck, may see them from their rooms.

History enthusiasts can visit two most interesting towns just 12 miles away from Saulty - Doullens and Arras (whose squares are spectacularly lit up at night), and our village is also just 3 miles from what the front line Great War. A British military WW1 cemetery nearby attests to the proximity of the conflicts at that time. The major battlefields of the Somme and the various British, Canadian and Australian Great War memorials are also nearby.
