Canisy is located in the Cotentin peninsula of Normandy, near D-Day invasion beaches, and Mont Saint Michel, thus not far from Brittany. This is the fantastic land of Barbey d'Aurevilly and homeland of Alexis de Tocqueville. Lost in the vast park and in its forest and farm land of 300 hectares, bordered by a romantic pond, the robust medieval tower proudly rise from n architectural ensemble humanized in the Renaissance. Canisy is a reflection of so many centuries, and been passed down in the family from generation to generation, and now to me. I became the proprietor following my father, almost thirty years ago.
With the help of my wife Marie-Christine, of some family members, and of many friends, we've worked hard to adapt the castle to today's world, to transform it into this elegant and welcoming place where so many people from all over the world love to com to be restored, to share moments of friendship, laughter, exchange of ideas, music and celebrations, and sometimes also to do some intense work in solitude.
