We spent the prior week in Paris where we had a great time. We never expected to top our Paris experience. Our arrival to the chateau transported us to a magical place. The pavilion was perfectly kept,decorated with period items and fully updated with modern conveniences.The property manager,Danielle ,was informative, gracious,and accommodating. the chateau is in close proximity to the landing beaches of the 2nd WW and Mont st. Michelle.

The nearby towns are very graphic and we intend to return to the chateau to see them in their spring and or summer colors.

We miss it already.

Endroit très charmant, appartement de toute beauté.

  • 5 of 5

Appartement superbement meublé, décoré avec un goût remarquable ; parfaitement équipé. L'accueil est irréprochable à tous points de vue. La campagne environnante, très jolie ; on va à la mer à pieds en longeant des champs de navets, de laitues, de choux… jusque sur la plage. L'endroit est vraiment attachant. Séjour calme et reposant. (Ravitaillement aisé, à moins de dix minutes de voiture.) On en deviendra facilement inconditionnel.

Séjour idyllique

  • 5 of 5

Séjour idyllique dans un lieu chargé d'histoire mais avec tout le confort moderne.

La beauté et le calme du lieu le disputent au charme des environs. Conditions idéales pour se ressourcer pendant quelques jours comme nous l´avons fait.
