Cherbourg-Octeville Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description
Romantic Chateau with swimming pool and jacuzzi
Chateau de Cource benefits from a harmonious and romantic atmosphere. The warmth of the chateau is created by its numerous wood panels, mouldings and light that streams through the large windows on each side of the property. All the reception rooms have windows at the front and back creating stunning, sun drenched rooms.
The interior of Chateau de Cource combines the elegance of the French C17th and 18th Centuries (furniture, master paintings & Aubusson carpets), and today's modern comforts (internet, wifi, satellite TV & a jacuzzi hot tub in some of the bathrooms).
