Château d’Asnières en Bessin
Located in a small Bessin village of 65 inhabitants, the Château d’Asnières en Bessin dates back from 1673. It is in a park of 2 ha surrounded by moats, woods and meadows. We welcome you to this place high in history whose architecture of the time has been preserved.
The first castle was built in the 13th century by the Lord of Asnières, Robert de Bricourt, then Alix d’Asnières married Roger Bacon, who in 1356 became Bacon de Breuil. Hottot de Beaumont was also Lord of Asnieres by his marriage with Jeanne du Hommet, 3rd daughter of the constable Jordan of Hommet. Very little documentation exists of this time, but we know that the first castle was destroyed (probably during the Battle of Formigny in 1450). The reconstruction of the castle was done in 1673 by the family Le Patou, who was also rehabilitator of the chapel of Asnières, very close to the castle. The property was remodelled in the 18th century (1783) when Louise the Patou gave her hand and the lordship of Asnières to the Bailli de Cerisy, Auguste de Baudre, provost and general captain of the Coast Guard of the bastion of Grandcamp, the last Ségneur d Asnieres was Emile de Baudre married to Jeanne du Fayel, daughter of Vicomte de la Villernoy. The property was later bought at the end of the 19th century by Arthur Le Duc, bronze sculptor. He was mayor of the village from 1893 to 1918. His workshops were located on the property’s farm, which requires renovation. During the Second World War the castle was owned by the Brunville family. It was occupied by German officers, probably from the 352nd Infantry Division.
