Geography

Aignerville is located in the Regional Natural Park of Marshes of Cotentin and Bessin, two kilometres north-west of Trevieres and 16 km east by north-east of Bayeux in the valley of the Aure. The commune is bisected in the northern part from west to east by Route nationale N13 Motorway (E46) which runs between Carentan and Bayeux. Aignerville village is reached by road D198 from Asnieres-en-Bessin in the north which passes through the length of the commune and the village and continues south to join the D124 on the southern border. The commune consists almost entirely of farmland with the villages of Carrefour-Berigot, La Grande Route, and Chapelle-Saint-Louis along the north of the motorway and Normanville, Hameau-Lair, La Croix-Toutin, and Aignerville to the south.The Ruisseau-de-Formigny river flows from south to north through the commune into the Aure Interieur which flows from the east forming the south-eastern border of the commune. In the south of the commune is a network of irrigation canals which is the beginning of a much larger network outside the commune.
