Anne Marie Nouel de Tourville de Buzonnière, who wrote as Anne de Tourville (26 August 1910 – September 2004), was a 20th-century French woman of letters.


The daughter of Jean de Tourville and his wife Marie née Lesage de la Haye, she was born in the village of Bais, Ille-et-Vilaine, and spent her childhood in Morieux, then at Saint-Servan. Around 1966, she settled in Dinard, which she did not leave until the late 1990s to return to her native village. She lived there peacefully until her death in September 2004 in Vitré in the home of the children of friends who had helped her and her family during the Second World War.

Her novels, with rural settings such as "Jabadao", which earned her the Prix Femina, or maritime settings such as "Matelot Gaël", are set in a Brittany half real and half imagined.

Writing was not her only talent: she exhibited her miniature paintings at the Salon des artistes français.
