Exploring the manor houses of Calvados, in 1937 – photo post!

During 1937, just before the outbreak of  WW2, the Touring Club of France went on an expedition to see the beautiful manor houses of Calvados, in Normandy.

Happily for us they took a camera and recorded these grand old houses, including at least one that has now been lost forever.

Lets join the Club on their journey.

Chateau de St. Germain de Livet will always have a special place in our hearts, it’s the first Normandy chateau we visited.
