Located between Bayeux and Caen, 15 kilometers from the sea, this 19th century castle is nestled in the heart of a charming village in the Bessin region. It offers a living space of 466 m2 and all the current comfort. The park of 7000 m2 shelters several outbuildings.

Built around 1870, the castle stands out with its neogothic architecture. High stone walls and a large portal barely hide its richly worked façade. Many elements seem to testify to an esoteric construction - a symbolic account of the search for the philosopher's stone. The monumental stone staircase, the stained glass windows, the woodwork, the parquet floors and the period fireplaces give charm and authenticity to this singular residence.

The castle benefits from all the modern comfort. The roof, the windows and the heating system are recent. The high ceiling of about 3 meters makes it an easy to heat house. The numerous windows bring clarity and light. Several rooms have a triple aspect. The layout is rational and balanced.

On the first floor, the entrance hall with its stone staircase distributes, on the one hand, a reception room and a living room, and on the other hand, a dining room, a kitchen and an office-library.

The second floor includes six bedrooms, a bathroom with bath and shower, and a separate toilet.

On the second floor, which is partially attic, there are seven rooms of various sizes as well as a shower room and a bathroom.

The basement (or garden level) was used by a previous owner as a restaurant. It consists of an entrance on the same level as the garden, connected to the first floor by a stone staircase, four rooms, a kitchen opening onto the garden and a checkroom with toilet.

The park is planted with majestic trees: sophora, pine, white chestnut, purple beech... A circular driveway leads around the house and to the outbuildings: an orangery with an adjoining chapel, a vast garage and a pavilion.

Thanks to its location and size, this chateau is suitable for multiple uses, such as a large family home, a luxurious guest house, a reception area, or for the exercise of a professional activity. It is ideally located to enjoy the charm of Bayeux, the activities of Caen or the pleasures of the sea.
