(4.4/5 based on 10 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: museums
Le Molay-Littry is a commune in the Calvados department in the Basse-Normandie region in northwestern France.HistoryOn January 23, 1969, Le Molay merged with the old commune of Littry to form Le Molay-Littry, which uses the old Littry INSEE code 14330.Le Molay-Littry has good travel links with neighbouring towns such as Isigny, Bayeux, St-Lo, and Balleroy, which served it well in the early 17th century. At that time, the town was a local source of coal which made the town a wealthy one. The town still has a mining museum which is open to the public.Chateau du MolayThe beautiful Chateau du Molay was built on the northwest side of town about two and a half centuries ago in 45 acres of magnificent wooded grounds.In 1758, a young Jacques-Jean le Coulteux du Molay (1740–1823), equerry to King Louis XV, and his wife Geneviéve –Sophie le Coulteux de la Noraye (painted below in 1788); built the chateau, his first large residence, in the heart of Normandy’s woodland countryside, close to Rouen, his birthplace. Jacques-Jean was a wealthy and well known Banker, who had one son (Jacques Félix Le Coulteux du Molay was born Paris 29 June 1779 and died in Dijon 1 April 1812) with Genevieve before their divorce. During their time together they also bought the famous Malmaison near Paris – some of those styles are reflected in the Chateau you now stand. Jacques-Jean later married Alexandrine Sophie Pauline Le Couteulx; the couple had three children.
