The House known as ‘Duchess Anne’s House’ is a particularly well-preserved example of a lantern house, the lantern being the emblematic architectural principle of the town during the Renaissance.

Visitors will find the house, with its covered interior courtyard sheltering a monumental fireplace and a spiral staircase of elaborately sculpted oak, which enables movement between the rooms in the front and rear of the house's three floors.

Interesting but skip if short on time

The house exterior is really interesting and so is the interior. It can be done in 10 minutes if you are focused

This is a fascinating example of a unique style of building that we stumbled upon quite by chance. A lot of the rooms are not open to view but the main room with huge chimney and incredible carved wooden staircase was well worth the 2 euro entrance fee.

An old house dating back to 1530 and in need of restoration, only able to get to first floor due to poor structure, but interesting special staircase showing off this lantern house. Charged €2 to visit one room. Would not have bothered really as so little available to see

Like the previous contributor this attractive building captured our curiosity and we arranged a visit but the explanation and directions in French and in faltering English was too quick and hurried. We would have liked to have lingered and imagined the life of the household. This is nonetheless an impressive well preserved old house.
