From forge to manor

TARPERON etymology: tar (Celtic) water and steps (Latin) rock, balcony.

Tarperon was originally a forge where iron was wrought between 1630 and 1848. The house facing it was built by the end of the eighteenth century, a few decades before an ancestor enlarged it into a manor.

The property is in the family since 1860. The quiet and bucolic character of the area contrast with the intense activity it once knew.

The  house's decoration says a lot about the family: a great grandfather Commissioner General of the Navy brought back numerous objects from his travels to Asia, while traditional furniture and paintings from different areas sit harmoniously alongside portraits of Jean Bart, illustrious ancestor and corsair to king Louis XIV.
