AN HISTORIC SETTING
In 1631, a congregation of Benedictine monks from Sainte Maure moved to Pontlevoy. They rebuilt the abbey and constructed a chapel, as well as a school that eventually became Louis XVI's royal military academy. To finance these ventures, the monks farmed much land in the region. One of these farms, Le Petit Bouc, situated at Thésée la Romaine, got its name from the goats that the monks raised there. All their estates, including le Bouc, were seized by the State during the French Révolution and thereafter sold by the authorities.
It is only at the beginning of the 1990's that the present owners bought the house,being smitten with the charm of the area. If the name Le Bouc remains unchanged, the land around the house was henceforth planted with the Gamay and Sauvignon grapes that the region is famous for. The house and outbuildings (including Le Petit Bouc), which had been abandoned in 1950, were carefully restored by your hosts Guy and Popsy.
