A very Splendid Golftrip

  • 5 of 5

This superb castle has everything one requires for a perfect week. It is ideal situated, close to all the interesting places to visit yet far away from noisy traffic. In the morning you might hear just the birds . The rooms are very spacy, elegant styled and provide a kind of Comfort you seldom find even in First Class Hotels. The kitchen is spacious, well equipped and offers a table for easily eight persons. So , although there is a beautiful dining room, expect to spent more relaxing time in the Kitchen than elsewhere. Sophie and Thibault are most welcoming Hosts. If You need help, You will get. The garden is just beautiful and well kept.

We enjoyed this Chateau in May and in good weather, but this location is certainly a wonderful experience in every season.

Wonderful Christmas in Normandy

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas in Normandy and were fortunate to find this home as the perfect place for our family to reunite.My mother stumbled across the property on-line; the booking process and communication with the homeowner was very simple. We all arrived from our separate homes in the early evening to a beautifully lit and wonderfully warm Chateau. (My parents, grandmother (aged 92) sister, niece and nephew arrived from Kent, UK. My brother and family arrived from the Middle East, (via Paris) and I traveled from the US with my husband and children (via Paris). Thibault Jeanne was there to greet us and show us the ropes. The home is large with plenty of space for everyone. Each bedroom has either a connecting bathroom or it's own bathroom/shower facilities. The website does not do justice to how warm and cosy the bedrooms are. It is laid out over three/ four storeys so you will get your exercise. I think I counted 56 steps from the laundry room on the lower level to the bedrooms on the third floor (and there is another bedroom tucked in the attic). The 'back' staircase did scare me a little as we had three young children; the steps are steep and a little slippery so to be honest we never let the youngest child (20 months) out of arms reach on that staircase. The kitchen is large and well laid out with two dishwashers. Practically everything you need is there at the home. I think we had to purchase a potato masher :). We spent LOTS of time in the kitchen, preparing meals and drinking wonderful French wine. On the main level of the house is a dining room that accommodated our family well on Christmas day (8 adults and 6 children), this leads to a wonderful drawing/living room that overlooks the swimming pool, has a natural wood burning fire place and really comfortable furniture, and this in turn leads to a TV room. Never at any point did the house feel crowded with 14 people. The grounds of the home are wonderful too; although with it being December we did not use them as much as we would in the summer time. The pool area looks awesome. I like the fact it was close to the home but was also in a separate part of the garden - great for peace of mind if you have young children. (There appeared to be a pool alarm too). There is also a playroom across the courtyard from the main house.

The local area was beautiful. We did not choose this location to focus on D-Day/WWII but seeing as there are lots of historic sites close by, we did spend some time viewing them

Map

Special interest holidays:

Sailing, horseback-riding, biking, hiking, fishing, windsurfing, beach-surfing at low tide, antiquing, photography, historical sites (Bayeux, D-Day Landing Beaches; Rouen, where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake, Mont St Michel), great shopping, tennis.

SPECIAL!: There is also the possibility of booking the 19ft (4.75mt) 90hp Atlantic Rib for Excursions that last either a half (snacks and soft drinks included)or full day (secluded beach picinic + drinks included). This comfortable semi rigid boat can carry its hired driver plus 6, 8 or 10 passengers depending on the purpose of the outing. One can hire it to betake from the sea the spectacular Norman coast and its moving WWII Landing sites beaches (10). Another outing could be for those who love to fish Sea Bass (8) or, another still, would be to spend the day Deep Sea diving (5 day course and intl accreditation available) for Lobster or experiencing the sunken tanks and landing craft from a unique and moving perspective.
