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

Manoir de Grandchamp sur la Vie

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.

The tour!


Le manoir de Tordouet


Le Manoir du Lieu-Binet


Le Manoir Conti near Honfleur, destroyed by fire in 1999


Chateau de Glatigny on the Touques river


Ancien couvert des Dominicaines de L’Isle


Manoir du Desert near Honfleur is open for September heritage days


At least one of these is now a bed and breakfast!


Possibly the only rather a dull viewpoint of stunning Manoir de Coupesarte


Le Manoir de Bellou


Manoir de Coudemone, Manoir Mesnil-Mauger and Manoir du Bais


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