One of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”
Take a stroll along the rampart walk. The sun lights up the restored facades and ramparts of Sainte-Suzanne.
At the foot of the village, the rolling countryside drifts into the distance, inviting you for a leafy walk – and we’ll do that shortly.
A tale of two Williams in Sainte Suzanne!
The first William is no stranger to our history textbooks – William the Conqueror once tried to subdue Sainte-Suzanne. Pugnacious fighter though he was, he had to give up trying to bring down the ancient fortress. Find out more about the town that resisted the conqueror of nations, eloquently told at the Musée de l’Auditoire.
The second William is less well known. Guillaume Fouquet de la Varenne was Lord of Sainte-Suzanne at the beginning of the 17th century. He built the Renaissance château, a jewel of classical architecture.
