Introduction

This castle was built around 1745 by Joseph-Abel Couture for Ermond Le Prestre de Neubourg, general receiver of finances of the generality of Caen.

The decorations use garlands in high relief for the front door, the window above, the pediment and the bull's-eyes. Fire pots and carved keys are also used. To the south, the main courtyard is surrounded by outbuildings. To the east is a common long.
