Overview

Broglie Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10 / 11. The 15th Century Manor house is set in a 6 acre clearing of the Broglie forest, and provides lovely secluded location. There is a beautifully landscaped garden, lawns, a large swimming pool with an adjoining poolhouse, and a paddock. lt is maintained to a high standard. There are 5 main bedrooms, and the possibility of an additional bed in the study off the main bedroom. The pool house has an additional twin bedroom at moderate additional cost.

This Norman Manor has been a family home for 3 generations and has original features dating back to the 15th century. It enjoys a peaceful setting in a very private location in the Broglie forest. It was restored to a high standard, with modern interior fittings, but in harmony with the original traditional timber beams, and its brick and flint construction.

The fittings are in the French country house style with fabrics on the bedroom walls chosen by the owners, who are also decoration consultants. The mature gardens are carefully landscaped, and the extensive lawns stretch to the edge of the forest. A particular feature is the large 13x6m pool, set away from the house, behind hedges surrounded by flowerbeds. Next to it is a thatched and half timbered pool house, with flowering climbers, a bar, leisure area, and a spare bedroom

A grocer, baker and butcher and newsagent is in the period village of Broglie (7km). Bernay has a wider range of shops and supermarkets as well (13km)

Further Details:

Bernay has an excellent Saturday morning market, and an attractive period town centre, with a number of traditional grocery and antique shops. It also has supermarkets and a few restaurants. Broglie is smaller: a period town with some good shops, (baker, grocer and butcher) Neubourg (25 minutes by car) has an even more important and lively market on Wednesdays.

Norman specialities centre round the sea, apples, dairy produce and game. Fresh fish is available in all markets and the larger towns, and the local lobster is a particular treat. Normandy is famous for its apples: 'Tarte fine aux pommes', and 'Tarte Tatin' are particular favorites, both may be prepared with Calvados, which, when properly matured, is a very fine apple brandy. Dairy products, such as butter, cream and cheese, are well known in the region, typified by such names as Livarot, Pont l'Eveque and Camembert, which when made and matured from unpasteurized milk take on a delicate and subtle flavour.

For sightseeing the well preserved Norman abbey of Le Bec Hellouin (whose abbots were sometimes appointed to the Archbishopric of Canterbury) is one hour away, and well worth the journey. Rouen is a large town with an old city centre, cathedral, cafes and restaurants: all well worth a visit. It is in the Seine valley over which Norman and French dynasties fought in the Middle Ages. The area is now more tranquil, and provides delightful excursions.

Further west and north are other historic locations such as Bayeux with its famous tapestry, and the mediaeval town of Caen.

Booking Notes:

A 30% deposit for the rental costs secures the reservation. The balance is due 6 weeks before the arrival date, together with a returnable deposit of £700. Normally a reservation is held firm for a few days from the date that a booking is made by telephone or email - to allow time to make a telegraphic transfer. It is sternly recommended that insurance be taken out to include 'no show' in the event of a non trivial emergency.

The property was as described. I felt I was sharing a piece of French history. We went as a family of 8 and had more than enough room in the house and the grounds were superb for games. Cycling/walking from here was an ideal way to see the local countryside. The weather was cool in the evening but with the big open fireplace was a delight to sit and be together.

The only negative was that the pool not being heated was too cold for the softer ones in the family to swim.

I will go again.
