Some history Discover its medieval past
The Maison Dauphin welcomes you to come and take some time-out at a confidential address in the heart of the medieval village of Le Crozet.
A few words about our house in which you will have a pleasant stay we hope.
Full of character and dating back to the early sixteenth century, it is located right in the heart of the village.
It is named after a prelate of Pope Leo XIII, Mgr. Dauphin, born here on 10 November 1806 and who died in Clamart in 1879. He is buried in the church which he had built on the ruins of the fortified castle. Formerly, before the fifteenth century, it was a butchers’ market. This illustrates how prosperous the village was at that period. It is a fine example of the architecture that flourished during the reign of Louis XII, with its granite and yellow limestone façade that lights up like a flame as the sun sets in summer.
