This beautiful chateau is situated in a green valley within walking distance of an ancient village. A long drive takes you up to the charming, fully restored manor house that can sleep up to 30 guests.

Hello Karine Francois! I want to say thank you for such a wonderful summer. Everyone said that I seemed like a different person when I got back and indeed I did feel 100% better than at the end of last term. I hope it doesn't wear off too quickly! Everything was just perfect, including the weather.

The perfect vacation spot

  • Submitted: Jul 15, 2013

While searching for the perfect place in Normandy to house our family and extended family for a week, we found 16th C Normandy Chateau. We were delighted to learn the Chateau had ample space to house our entire multi-generational group of 24 at a reasonable rate. Upon arrival we found the Chateau to be comfortable and roomy and the grounds perfect for children to play and explore. The set up of the rooms was ideal for privacy for each family. The two sets of grandparents each took a first floor en-suite, teenagers took the third floor connecting rooms and parents with smaller children had plenty of space in the apartments in the chateau.

The location of 16th C Normandy Chateau is perfect, located at the end of a quiet lane and yet very near the small village of Brix for the very essential French baked goods. The purpose of our trip was to provide our grandchildren an opportunity to see the D-Day beaches and to learn the history of that historic time. 16th C Normandy Chateau is within easy traveling distance to all of the major D-Day sights. We also traveled to other beaches and towns and other major attractions easily from this location. Karin, an owner/manager of the property, assisted us daily. Karin helped us arrange the catering of our evening meals, gave us hints on best places to visit and shop and provided us with everything we needed to make this the perfect family vacation.

The local village was once the feudal domain of the Bruces, ancestors of Scotland's famous King Robert the Bruce. Within a short distance of the chateau you will find ancient villages, chateaux, manors, churches and abbeys. Normandy has a rich history and is proud of its cultural heritage from the Romans, Celts, Vikings and Normans. The chateau is close to beautiful sandy beaches (20 minutes), a wide choice of restaurants (5 minutes), a children’s animal park (15 minutes), the traditional French markets with fresh local produce (10 minutes), La maison du biscuit hyper markets/shopping area (10 minutes), Mont St. Michel (1.5 hour), D-Day landing beaches (30 minutes), the Bayeux Tapestry (1 hour), Sea life Cherbourg (10 minutes). We can provide you with Calvados from the local farmer and wine tasting if it's of interest. There is a restaurant 2km away for simple, good value French food. We recommend the local markets on Monday morning in Bricquebec (7 km) and Friday morning in Valognes
