Situated in the townland of Vieux Pont en Auge (literally, Old Bridge in Auge), the Manoir du Lieu Rocher is situated in peaceful countryside, within easy reach of the Flowery Coast, the landing beaches and sites of the 1944 Battle of Normandy, as well as castles and monuments that are testaments to its rich history.
This is a superb Manor dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. A listed monument, the Manor nestles within its own grounds and looks south-west across the beautiful Oudon valley. It provides sophisticated comfort in a protected environment.
A little history about The Vieux-Pont Barony
Vieux-Pont is thought to have belonged to an old Frankish domain, as indicated by a 10th century inscription engraved on the base of the Church steeple, also a listed monument and situated just a stone’s throw from the Manor.
The Barony of Vieux-Pont and its lords have seen rich hours over the centuries, notably at the time of the conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy. William of Vieux Pont, present at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, was given the English counties of Cumberland, Northumberland, Westmorland, Durham and Harington (Norfolk) by William the Conqueror.
