Overview

Courtomer Villa Rental Photos and Description

Experience the French countryside in luxury at this chateau in Normandy. The region is rich in natural beauty, from natural parks to shimmering fields of wheat, and this villa reflects that heritage, with small herd of cattle grazing on the estate’s pastures. However, one look at the villa’s beautiful, neoclassical façade and it’s clear that this is no farmhouse! Antiques and artworks abound, and some of the chateau’s architectural elements are on France’s historic register! It’s an ideal retreat for a large family or a large group of friends.

This chateau is set on 150 acres of park and farmland. A picturesque herd of Limousine cattle grazes in the pastures, and deer sometimes wander through the grounds. Other buildings on the estate include a 16th-century Protestant temple, glacière, spring house, Orangerie, farm buildings, stables, and commons.

Lower Level: This level has a billiards room with a fireplace and a billiard table. There’s also a ping pong room. Ground Floor: The property is entered via a hall that’s meticulously painted in trompe l’oeil. There are three main areas: the West and East wings and the Main block. A private area in the West Wing contains the offices of the staff and a chapel. In the West Wing, there’s a family dining room with a working fireplace, seating 10-12 at its mahogany table. The kitchen is equipped with new Siemens appliances (2 ovens, 2 refrigerators, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, and plate-warmer) and granite countertops. There are high-quality pots and pans, gourmet-quality knives and appliances (including a Cuisinart food preparer, Krups espresso-maker, toaster, juicer, mixer). Two full sets of china, wine and regular glasses, mugs, and bowls are provided, with serving platters and bowls. An adjacent pantry has a laundry facility, with a washing machine and dryer. In the Main block, there is a formal dining room, which is large enough for banquets and has tapestries, a crystal chandelier, and large French windows overlooking the countryside. In the East Wing, the "Salle de Jeux" salon is decorated with small tables, silk-upholstered armchairs, and other antique furniture, and has double doors opening onto the terrace. The grand salon has elaborate 18th-century plaster that’s listed on France’s national historic register, as well as sofas and armchairs, a grand piano, a fireplace, and a chandelier. The library has a leather sofa and chairs, an antique roll-top desk, a fireplace, and a 19th-century collection of books. Attached to the library are the Reading Room and "Fumoir”, quiet working and sitting rooms. The reading room is furnished with a desk and chair, comfortable armchairs, and floor lamp. The fumoir’s unique star-patterned parquet is listed on the national register. There’s one bedroom on this floor, a suite with a standard double bed (140 cm, comfortable for one, cozy for two) and an ensuite bathroom with a shower, sink, and toilet. There are also two guest bathrooms with a sink and toilet. First Floor: A curving staircase leads to the first floor, which has 12 bedrooms – the nicest in the chateau. All bedrooms are centrally heated with individually adjustable radiators. All are furnished with period furniture, fabric, and pictures, and wood parquet. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with an extra-wide ceramic bathtub, a detachable showerhead, sink and toilet. The first bedroom has a queen-size (160 cm) canopy bed and a decorative fireplace. The second bedroom has a standard double bed (140 cm, comfortable for one, cozy for two) and a decorative fireplace. The third, fourth, fifth, and sixth, seventh, and eighth bedrooms have twin-beds (90 cm) that can be arranged to form one king-size bed upon prior request. The ninth and tenth bedrooms have a queen-size bed (160 cm) and a decorative fireplace. The eleventh and twelfth bedrooms have single beds (90 cm) that can be joined together upon prior request. Second Floor: The second floor has three bedrooms with single beds (90 cm) and nine bedrooms with twin beds (90 cm), as well as a single room with a standard double bed (140 cm, comfortable for one, cozy for two). The first floor bedrooms have more elegant furnishings and are preferable.

Please Note: The twin-beds can be joined together for form king-size beds upon prior request. A 140 cm bed is considered narrow for two people by U.S. standards. Although this chateau has bedrooms for up to 40, it can only be rented for a maximum of 15 guests.
