Arnaud Digard came to the chateau on the occasion of a photo shoot and discovered by chance in the attic a trunk bearing the same name as him which could have belonged to one of his ancestors. The château de Canisy gave it to him so he could convey the old trunk to his family.
Not very far from Canisy, the British painter David Hockney settled in a timbered house from a small Norman village. For more informations about his life and his coup de foudre for Normandy, you can read this article : https://www.parismatch.com/Culture/Art/David-Hockney-au-pays-de-Monet-1653284
We were pleased to welcome our first electric car in Canisy, a Tesla. Good news for other electric car owners : In Canisy, just near the Château, in front of the Church, you can find an electric battery charger to charge up your electric car.
The Chateau de Canisy is a remarkable national historic building in the middle of an 800-acre (300 hectares) park with ponds, forests and land. It has been in the same family for a thousand years.
