Pets accepted
Of the fortified sites that existed in Normandy during the Middle Ages, Crèvecoeur is a unique and perfectly preserved example of a small lord's castle. This medieval castle surrounded by water has retained its original two-part layout; on the earthen mound the residential manor is protected by fortifications, whereas the chapel and the half-timbered farm buildings are concentrated in the farm yard. Exhibitions relate the site's medieval history, the construction of half-timbered houses and the adventure of the Schlumberger brothers. Unaccompanied visit lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.

    Crèvecoeur is a unique example of a well preserved Middle Age fortified Lord’s home. Surrounded by water, the castle has maintained its original 2-part layout: the residential section is protected by a group of fortified buildings on a raised earthen mound; in the farm-yard is the chapel and the agricultural, timber-framed outbuildings. An exhibition details the medieval history of the site, the construction of the buildings and the adventures of the Schlumberger brothers.
