A descendant of an old Caen family the poet François de Malherbe (1555 – 1628) is thought to have been born in this house.  Rebuilt in 1582 in Place “Belle Croix”, by his father, who was on the Caen Presidial, it has been magnificently restored.
As in the day of the father of French poetry, along with the coat of arms of the Malherbes’ ancestors and allies, it represents two sumptuous attic windows engraved with Latin inscriptions.
