Condé-sur-Vire is a commune in the Manche department in Normandy in north-western France. On 1 January 2016, the former commune of Le Mesnil-Raoult was merged into Condé-sur-Vire.[1]


The arms of Condé-sur-Vire are blazoned :
Vert, a bend wavy (river) between an enraged bull and a milk-can argent.


Among well known people born here is Father Jean de Brébeuf, a martyr and since 1930 a Catholic saint.


In the late 1970s, arrangements were made for the twinning of Condé-sur-Vire with the Parish of Whitehill, in Hampshire, UK. For several years, parties of civic leaders and school teachers would arrive in Bordon, accompanying 70 or more school children for a week of activities.
