Nestled in the heart of the valley of la Thue, the Château de Pierrepont covers 10 hectares at 8 kilometers from the D-Day landing beaches and 15 km from Caen and Bayeux.
The Castle, built in the eighteenth century, was the home of the family of St. John de Crevecoeur, a Norman nationalized American, consul of France in New York, famous for his “Letters from an American farmer” (1792), considered as the founding text of the American literature.
Eric and Patricia Courthéoux have been lovingly renovating it for the last 25 years. They welcome you in three houses, located on the property nearby the Castle: La Ferme, Le Pressoir and La Grange.
The river winding through the park, the wood and its bicentenary trees, the pond and the marsh where birds love meeting at sunset, will all tell you about Normandy and its history.
