Chateau du Jonquay is located near a small town ( approx 5 - 10 min walk thru country lanes )
The local village has a beautiful old church and delicious Boulangerie that can arrange delivery of freshly baked croissants and baguettes to your front door every morning!
It is only a short drive , approx 5 mins , to another local town Bourg -Achard.
This town has 2 supermarkets, fabulous butcher and charcuterie, 2 more Boulangeries, fruit shop , Bank and Post Office. There is a market here once a week.
It also has a magnificent michelin rated restaurant and 2 bars.
In the Chateau is a book we have collated of things to do and see in the area , including good restaurants.
Gleaming white walls, pastel shutters, soaring roofs and a tree-lined courtyard — it could have tumbled out of a romantic French novel. Inside is no less alluring. The graceful 17th-century Empire manor house, in a secluded corner of Normandy, occupies three floors and has two sitting rooms, three bathrooms and a library. Rooms are decorated throughout with a deft lightness of touch in classic French style, while the dining room with its Asian flourishes combines the funky with the formal — great for lunches that stretch past sunset. Château boutiquery continues in seven spacious bedrooms, their period design augmented by contemporary touches. Outside, a sunbed beside the (unfenced) pool is the perfect viewing place for five acres of gardens, French and formal. The village of Bourg Achard, some 4km away across the fields, supplies the essentials of French life — bread, wine, cuisine, culture; the cycling is easy and bikes are provided. There are markets aplenty, and mediaeval Rouen, where the pro-English bishop somewhat unhelpfully burnt Joan of Arc, is an easy drive.
Chateau Du Jonquay was among one of my best for beautiful memories. I took my children and grandchildren for a two week adventure spending the best with them in this beautiful, quiet, perfect country french setting. Cows, working farms, beautiful quiet and well stocked villages and beauty abound. The best quote came from my three year old grandson two days after returning to the U.S. while having breakfast." Daddy, I wish we were having breakfast at the Chateau". What more could anyone say. It was the best and we hope to make a return visit for yet, another memorial breakfast. Thank you Jane and Stephen for allowing us to share your fabulous home.
We rented both the Chateau and le Petit Jonquay as well. We had a large group staying in Normandy for the World Equestrian Games. The location provided easy access to both venues of the competition. It was the perfect size for our group and we enjoyed the patio outside Le Petit Jonquay in particular. The house was comfortable and well furnished. The town of Bourg-Achard is charmingly delightful. I would recommend the Chateau to anyone wanting to see Normandy.
Chateau Jonquay played host to our wonderful family holiday. Set in a very peaceful rural area, we all had a great time. Owners were v helpful with lots of recommendations etc. Super-comfy beds, linen etc. There are a few things that maybe need updating (outside furniture, oven) and a few things I may have done a bit differently (comfier / less formal sitting room, vacuum the pool before arrival) but none of this matters when you have a wonderful family and can spend a whole week in their company.
Set in the gorgeous Normandy countryside, Chateau du Jonquay is utterly charming. We loved it's authenticity and extraordinary decor (wait till you see the bedrooms!). The Chateau was perfectly prepared with lots of information on where to visit. Honfleur, Monet's Garden and Deauville were my favourites plus Rouen is brilliant for shopping. And local L'Amandier Restaurant is a treat not to be missed. Staying here really was the highlight of our trip and we definitely plan to be back. We had a great holiday.
We celebrated my 85th Birthday at the beautiful Chateau du Jonquay in Normandy. There was ample room for all 14 members of my Family. The Furnishings are beautiful, the beds comfortable and room at the tables, both indoor and outside, for all. We loved the Pool and the ample shade and lounges. While there we visited Honfleur, Monet's Gardens and some of the charming small towns just a few miles away.. The Family loves to cook and the nearby town of Bourg Achard supplied wonderful breads and fresh produce. This is a perfect place for a large group of Family or Friends that would enjoy having Cows for Neighbors !! We did.
Our group had a wonderful stay at this lovely empire chateau. The setting is right in the heart of the Normandy countryside - huge skies and gorgeous sunsets. Close to a nice working town, you can provision yourself handsomely from the excellent little shops there - the boulangerie is terrific and we found the local people to be unfailingly charming and helpful.
Inside, the chateau made for excellent group living with comfortable beds all in large rooms. We enjoyed the library especially with its collection of some engaging and special books. There is a great dining room where we ate some sumptuous meals made with delicious local produce. The fine weather meant we also spent some quality time by the pool. We had some great days out tracing "Les Boucles" - the twists and turns of the Seine nearby. We enjoyed some excellent restaurants in the area and a special mention must go out to L'Amandier which was one of several great recommendations from the owners who left a very comprehensive guide - no detail too small !
You can stay put in some considerable comfort or take days out - none of the main Normandy visitor attractions are too far away and that includes the beach. If you need to get a family group together in a civilised, convivial, relaxing and stylish way, then I seriously recommend this wonderful place.
Conveniently located one hour to Paris via A13. Between historic Rouen and luxurious beaches of Deauville. Convenient to all Normandy attractions,: DDay Beaches, Monet's gardens, Champs de Bataille golf and chateau, Mont St Michel, Bayeux tapestry etc. Local french villages with daily markets, monasteries, garden tours and museums. Farming countryside for quiet walks, biking, cafés and friendly locals. Near multiple Michelin recognized restaurants.
