About Adelaide de Canchy

Jean-François and Hélène de Canchy live in Paris but the family originally comes from Normandie. Château de Canchy was built in the XVIth century and belongs to the Canchy's family since 1650. In the 90's Jean-François and Hélène de Canchy decided to restore this old Henri IV Château. It has been a huge amount of work and it took a few years to complete the refurbishment. In 2011, the property has been renovated with all modern conveniences (modern bathrooms and kitchens, internet access through Wireless...). The interiors of the three houses have been tastefully and comfortably furnished.

Major event in 2014 : 70th Anniversary of D-day and the Battle of Normandy

In 2014, all eyes will be on the D-Day landings Beaches and the sites of the Battle of Normandy. The 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy will be commemorated by many Allied Heads of State and hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world from June through till the end of August.

2014 will be marked by a large number of commemorations and festivities including firework displays, parades, parachute drops, setting up of military camps, open air concerts with big bands playing and much more...In the build up to this historic event, why not go back in time and revisit the main sites of 6th June, 1944 or take a virtual tour of the key places in the Battle of Normandy?

At only 2.45 hours from Paris and 20 minutes from the medieval town of Bayeux, half way between Deauville and Le Mont Saint Michel, Château de Canchy offers the perfect opportunity to unearth Normandy's treasures.

Plunge into Normandy's history and walk in the footsteps of William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy and first Norman King of England: the town of Bayeux with its famous tapestry listed as 'Memory of the World' by UNESCO and its 11th century cathedral, the city of Caen with its fortress, abbeys and beautiful Ducal Castle. Discover Normandy's more recent history and have a tour on its landing beaches, visit the various sites and museums dedicated to the Normandy Battle with D-Day Tour. Canchy is only 10 minutes away from Omaha Beach and the impressive American Cemetery which was featured in the beginning of S. Spielberg's film 'Saving Private Ryan'.

Thanks to a rich historical past, Bayeux and the Bessin region have a fine architectural heritage: châteaux, stud farms, manor farms and abbeys. During your stay at Canchy do not miss the Juaye-Mondaye Abbey, Châteaux de Colombières and Balleroy which are just minutes away from the Château.

Children's entertainement: Zoo de Jurques is at 25 miles from Canchy. Le Labyrinthe de Bayeux is a fun, immense corn maze in Bayeux. Fantastic for adults and kids. Take younger kids to Festyland just outside Caen, where more than 30 prehistoric, Viking, William the Conqueror and pirate themed rides and attractions provide a fun introduction to the region’s history.

Sports: Bessin's tapestry of coast, forests, countryside and water provides a seemingly unlimited diversity of outdoor activities, starting with golf for which Normandy has been rewarded as a world golf destination.

Swing at Omaha Beach Golf Club, an amazing two 18 holed courses in a beautiful setting between land and sea, overlooking the D-Day's landing beaches, just 10 minutes away from Canchy Swim into the Channel, along its 60 kilometres of coastline, Bessin offers some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Normandy

Fancy a ride on the beach, in the forest or in the countryside, Normandy is the ideal destination for the practice of horse riding

Practice any watersports, from sand-yacthing to kitesurfing, catamaran to cruising yacht, dinghy to windsurfing

Go for hiking or canoeing through the Bessin and Cotentin 27 000 hectares of marshes and explore the 2 500 km of hiking trails in the Regional Parc of Bessin and Cotentin marshes.
