The interior visit of
In 1741 Alexandre
de Vendeuvre, descendant of one of the oldest Norman
families, related to the Counts of Flanders, began to
build a typical countryside home. For his summer
residence he called on the services of the well-known
architect Jacques-François Blondel.
The restraint of the overall style is
relieved by the balance and harmony of the mouldings and
sculptures. Blondel paid particular attention to the
highly sophisticated interior circulation and decoration.
Classed as a Historic Monument both for its exterior and
interior, Vendeuvre is the prototype of
an aristocratic norman countryside residence of
the 18th century.
