France, In the department of the Maritime Seine (76), beside the town of Cany-Barville. Situated within the greenness of the Durdent valley, the castle of Cany offers its visitors the pleausure of dicovering the
majesty of its "cour d'honneur" and its outbuildings.
The castle still recalls to memory the severe splendour of the Louis XIII era.
Constructed on the request of Pierre le Marinier by François Mansard, the uncle of the builder of Versailles,
between 1640 and 1646,this beautiful residence never since left the family.
Thanks to Armande de Becdelièvre the castle has still preserved, to a great extent, its antique furniture. She succeeded,
indeed, in saving Cany from expropriation during the tragic hours of the Revolution.
