A visit to Argouges manor along the Calvados coast

Nestled in the Normandy countryside, Argouges manor is a beautiful example of medieval architecture located in the middle of the French department of Calvados.

Surrounded by untouched forest in the Calvados department, this medieval building, which features in a book by Gustave Flaubert, is located on the outskirts of the village of Vaux-sur-Aure, not far from Bayeux and the Normandy beaches. It is surrounded by a moat, which makes it even more peaceful, and can only be accessed via a double arch bridge and an ornate gate.

Argouges, a famous manor in Calvados

Featuring a main courtyard, this harmonious architectural complex is a listed historical monument. Its imposing façade includes Renaissance-style towers with mullioned windows supported by ornate lintels. In a sign of its illustrious past as a home for lords and ladies during the time of Louis XIII, the manor also includes several stunning outbuildings.
