The 11-bedroom ch â teau is part of an estate that includes a four-bedroom manor house, a caretaker's cottage, a pigeonnier, an old winery, two swimming pools and nearly seven hectares of land.
One night he found lodging in a log pigeonnier and the birds ignored him except when he rolled over, and then they all stirred and made watery gurgling sounds and settled back in.
Only be punctual, with me things go by the clock, my house is a pigeon-house (pigeonnier).
The _pigeonnier_ had been pulled down to make room for a shed with a steam-engine, and the whole aspect of the place was revolutionized; but the stream and water-mill (the latter a mere picturesque ruin) were still there; the stream was, however, little more than a ditch, some ten feet deep and twenty broad, with a fringe of gnarled and twisted willows and alders, many of them dead.
