Notes: Manoir de Bréhet is a noble house located in the municipality of La Turballe, in the French department of Loire-Atlantique. The Lordship of Bréhet falls under the old regime of the Seneschal of Guérande, with right of low justice and average justice. She has eyes in the salt marshes of Guérande and a mill within the barony of Campzillon. The architecture of the house allows the date of the seventeenth century. The historian Fernand Guériff gives the following description: "a main building flanked by two identical houses, all rooms overlooking the south, while a long corridor to the north served the ground floor as upstairs . Skylights pavilions, with their rounded pediments, are much of that time - two skylights are found in the northern façade. As for those of the south facade, they were rebuilt and the roof following a fire late nineteenth century in the fashionable style of the time. The lintel of the door, with two completely erased faces, does not seem to come from the original construction. A beautiful well octagonal granite adorns the yard: it carries on one side a mutilated escutcheon on which we think we recognize the cross and the star of the attic of the shield."
