In the heart of Normandy, embedded in gently rolling hills covered with apple orchards and blooming meadows, stand witnesses of a proud past. Norman manor houses are true architectural jewels: romantic half-timbered structures, feudal country houses and defiant noble seats of stone, wood and brick. What unites them is their expressive charm and masterly building technique. The splendid photographs included in this volume present eighty of these houses, including some in the most remote areas of the province. Even today, many of these structures continue to serve Norman families as homes, and only a few are accessible to the public. To reveal the beauty and dignity of this architecture to a broader public, Regis Faucon has captured the picturesque charm of the houses; he integrates the medieval walls with the characteristic play of colour and the forms of this unique landscape a work to look at, to enjoy and to dream about.
