OUTBUILDING OF VAULAVILLE CASTLE

Maisons Castle Rental Photos and Description

Great accommodation in a listed historical monument

In the 19th century, the owner of the Vaulaville castle decided to move in the outbuildings to leave the main house to his newly-married son. She transformed these outbuildings into a second castle and furnished the upper level of the central part to a very high standard. Later, her son's wife put a vampire statue on the façade...

It is this accommodation of 180 sqm that we offer. It has a living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, 4 bedrooms, bathroom with toilets and shower room with toilets.

Annex: utility room and play room with table tennis. Courtyard and big garden with aboveground pool, trampoline and swing.

Perfect place for families

  • 5 of 5
After a busy week in Paris, we wanted to relax and see the D-Day sites around Normandy. The spacious cottage of this 18th century chateau was the perfect spot. Our children enjoyed running all over the grounds and playing on the swings and slide. We also had nightly Ping-Pong tournaments. None of the D-Day sites were more than 30 min from the chateau.

Ms. Helen was a gracious and helpful hostess. The chateau has been in her family for generations and she is anxious to share that history while taking you on a tour of the buildings. It is a quiet, beautiful setting where our family enjoyed time together. Highly recommended for families with small or multiple children.

Amazing Experience in an Incredible setting

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of five (the youngest of whom is 7) with a visiting 70 year old father. This location was perfect for us. The castle was well-situated with an easy drive for the sights we were there to see (Normandy beaches and Bayeux). Marie-Helene was a very gracious host and was waiting on us there when we arrived. She showed us around and offered to give us a tour of the main building, which we took her up on during our second day there. She shared some of her personal family history with us,which was AMAZING, as her family was very involved in some key events in the history of France, especially WWII. It opened our eyes to the contributions of many of the French people, and this personal touch made our trip even more special. She was also very appreciative of Americans, which is always nice to hear when you are traveling in Europe!
The house itself that we stayed in (built in the early 1700's) was beautiful and well-maintained. It was a bit drafty (being a 300 year old house!) but the radiators were all new and worked great so we were never cold. The fireplace in the library (our favorite room!) was stocked with firewood and we enjoyed a fire every night. The library was full of books and had a VERY large selection of DVDs. There were also board games and kids books. Oh, and there was a ping pong table downstairs in the garage which we all had fun with. The castle's location was great and allowed us to spend a minimal amount of time in the car, but allowed us to see everything that we wanted to see in a short period of time.

All things considered, the house was in great shape, and gave a truly unique feel to our visit. Keep in mind, if you are the type that doesn't like staying in older houses and feels more comfortable in chain hotels, then this might not be for you.

Bottom line, if you want to stay in beautiful chateau with an incredible history, this is the place for you. We hope to visit again soon!

Charming Country estate

  • 4 of 5
From our arrival to Bayeux until we left we had a wonderful country home close to Normandy and all the history that surrounds it. It has all the space that families and groups could want, with a pool for use during the warmer months, a ping pong table, lots of books and movies and friendly donkeys next door that love apples!

The owner was a gracious hostess who opened her doors to the main house for a tour of the Castle that is over 300 years old, when Vaulaville Castle was THE place to be. The Chapel, frequented by the Bishop back then, had his own sleeping room complete with custom bed and furnishings. Marie Helene would love to show you the museum quality artifacts in the home and grounds.

A lovely, comfortable place to stay for travels in the area. We very much enjoyed our visit!

A Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay! The chateau is beautiful, spacious, and just a short drive from Bayeux, Caen, D-Day beaches, Grainville, German bunker sites, Mont St. Michel… Perfect for visiting Normandy and enjoying an 18th century countryside home. We were a group of 10 (children, teens, adults) and were very comfortable in the house. The library has a great collection of books/ games/DVDs; the garden, pool and ping-pong table made for relaxing summer nights; and the house was equipped with all necessary amenities. Marie and her family were great hosts: offering to show us the castle, providing suggestions on sites to visit, and eagerly offering to help with whatever was needed. We hope to return again!

Magical!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 9 stayed at Marie's house for a week. My five children (ages 5 to 15) loved this house. It was quiet and spacious making for well rested travelers. There was plenty to do including movies to watch, books and puzzles. My kids even tried to read Garfield in French! Outside they enjoyed the pool, trampoline and farm animals. One daughter cried when it was time to leave.

We cooked all of our breakfasts and most dinners on our own. Marie provided a BBQ for us to use. There is a grocery store nearby in Bayeux.

I enjoyed learning about the chateau and its history. Marie gave us a tour of the main castle. I loved hearing her stories of her family and the house.

While staying there we traveled to Bayeux which is a charming town. We also visited Mt. Ste. Michel and the D-day beaches.

I highly recommend this property for a larger group that wants independence and freedom to set their own schedule.

I'm so glad we got the chance to stay with Marie. I hope that someday I will be able to return.
