A 16th century Seigneurial manor housein a Normandy Valley in the Auge region
Broglie, EURE lower-normandy 27270 FR


150 km from Paris, in a valley that borders the French departments of Eure, Calvados and Orne. The subprefecture of Bernay with its French SNCF train station is 20 minutes away. All local shops are 4 km away. Access to the A28 motorway is 10 minutes away.
Situated above the north bank of the Charentonne, along a country lane that winds its way through meadows.


Entrance gates open on to 2,000 m² of land. On the left is a manor house, opposite which is a guest house and a building currently used as a study and a garage. The grounds are planted with trees and flower beds; a low stone wall delimits a terrace and a paved alleyway leads to the entrance. On a lower level is a meadow running alongside the river. The view over the surrounding countryside is omnipresent throughout the property.

The Commandery

Its name comes from the fact that in the 18th century a “planche” (plank), an old French word for a bridge, made it possible to cross the river “à pied sec” (with dry feet) and therefore to collect a tax. A plaque in one of the fireplaces indicates its construction date: 1583. Built on lower sections of flint and brick, the upper sections feature half-timbering. The Pays d’Auge being the only region where wooden constructions were given a noble appearance. Never having had to play a defensive role, its windows are sufficiently large as to let in copious amounts of light. The gable roof is covered with flat local tiles. Slightly offset and projecting vertically on the front facade, a square extension supported on wooden pillars that span the full height of the ground floor, has a gable roof enhanced by a finial. The roof has two small roof dormers that are in line with the windows on the lower levels.
The rear facade features a projection that contains the kitchen.
This manor house spans a floor surface area of approx. 220 m².

Our opinion

A very private setting for this residence with its reasonably sized living rooms and garden. With a most pleasant, relaxing view over the Normandy countryside, the manor house and its outbuildings are in a very good state of repair and have been immaculately kept by their various owners. It is a site with a wealth of old and contemporary history.
