THE TEMPLE DE L'aMOUR

The Château des Vaux, in Pontgouin, belongs, in the 17th century, to Charles du Roussin, escuyer and Sieur du Conté des Vaux. 

Composed of a single building, it was bought and sold several times before becoming, in 1804, the property of the Marquis d'Aligre who passed it on to his grandson, the Marquis de Pomereu d'Aligre. He decided to make it the most sumptuous residence in the region and its ninety-nine properties.

The work was completed in 1881. In the Perche, the Château des Vaux lived to the rhythm of the great hunting expeditions. The marquise arranged the park and, at the bottom of the valley, imagined a pretty brick and stone rotunda, a Temple of Love, visible from the main courtyard. The Marquis d'Aligre died in 1889. His widow kept the estate until 1926 and then put it up for sale. 

The farms were scattered at random during the auction and, in 1946, the castle was acquired by Father Duval, director of the work of the Orphans Apprentices of Auteuil, in search of a site capable of hosting the many war orphans who knocked on his door.

Currently, on the Château des Vaux site, the Fondation Apprentis Auteuil welcomes, educates, trains and accommodates young people with social, family or academic difficulties.

The Temple de l'amour

project PRESENTATION

On the edge of the forest, the Temple de l'Amour is still there, but its condition has slowly deteriorated over time. 

Today, it is in danger of falling apart. The structural and roofing work required to safeguard it amounts to more than 65 000 euros. The association "Sauvegarde Temple d'Amour", former students, and the Fondation d'Auteuil are mobilizing to save him.

From the beginning, the Temple of Love has always been a place for walking and meditation, and resonates with a special resonance in the hearts of many generations of students.

Along a busy hiking trail, it is admired by many walkers. It is characteristic of the factories that dotted the gardens and parks in the 18th and 19th centuries and is of major architectural interest.

The purpose of this project is to launch the first restoration work on the Temple of Love. 

A tarpaulin was put out of the water by a roofer to protect the building from the elements.This tarpaulin is temporary and the repair of the dome is essential.

WHAT WILL THE COLLECTION BE USED FOR?

Our overall budget is 65 000€.

This collection allows us to finance the start of the work with the removal of the dome for its reconstruction, as well as a new covering of the stones (which will be exposed by this reassembly).

A first step of 5 000€ will allow the rental of equipment adapted for this type of work at height.

A second landing of 10 000€, for the complete dismantling and protection of the building.


WHO WE ARE ?

The Association Sauvegarde du Temple de l'Amour is mainly composed of former students of the Fondation Apprentis d'Auteuil. Its president, Roger LIBEAU, who initiated the project, is a former student and former school teacher.
