Villa Kerillon

A team of Belgian explorers managed to get permission to enter the villa Kerillon. This villa was one of the three houses that were used by Admiral Dönitz' staff. The Admiral himself used this "Chateau des Sardines". This name was given by the fishingboat owners that had the villas built at the end of the nineteenth century. They made much money on the sardine trade. We thank Pascal Matthieu for his permission to show the pictures of his trip.

Villa Kerillon.

Beautiful stairway.

Every coloured symbol represents an U-boat. The ones in black and white are from the 2nd U-boat Flotilla, which was stationned in Lorient.

Between the villas are several bunkers for headquarters.
