Chateau du Jonquay is located near a small town ( approx 5 - 10 min walk thru country lanes )
The local village has a beautiful old church and delicious Boulangerie that can arrange delivery of freshly baked croissants and baguettes to your front door every morning!
It is only a short drive , approx 5 mins , to another local town Bourg -Achard.
This town has 2 supermarkets, fabulous butcher and charcuterie, 2 more Boulangeries, fruit shop , Bank and Post Office. There is a market here once a week.
It also has a magnificent michelin rated restaurant and 2 bars.
In the Chateau is a book we have collated of things to do and see in the area , including good restaurants.
Gleaming white walls, pastel shutters, soaring roofs and a tree-lined courtyard — it could have tumbled out of a romantic French novel. Inside is no less alluring. The graceful 17th-century Empire manor house, in a secluded corner of Normandy, occupies three floors and has two sitting rooms, three bathrooms and a library. Rooms are decorated throughout with a deft lightness of touch in classic French style, while the dining room with its Asian flourishes combines the funky with the formal — great for lunches that stretch past sunset. Château boutiquery continues in seven spacious bedrooms, their period design augmented by contemporary touches. Outside, a sunbed beside the (unfenced) pool is the perfect viewing place for five acres of gardens, French and formal. The village of Bourg Achard, some 4km away across the fields, supplies the essentials of French life — bread, wine, cuisine, culture; the cycling is easy and bikes are provided. There are markets aplenty, and mediaeval Rouen, where the pro-English bishop somewhat unhelpfully burnt Joan of Arc, is an easy drive.
our family (three children aged 4yo, 6yo and 9yo) stayed at this beautiful Chateau Du Jonquay for a week in September 2015. what an amazing house, in a beautiful idyllic countryside. we particularly liked the assistance of hosts Jane & Steven and their guide to local and district attractions, restaurants and sights. in fact by the end of the week, we had almost visited and seen every one! would definitely recommend a stay here for a quintessential Normandie experience!! and make sure you do the Rouen markets!!
A lovely comfortable house in a superb country setting. Lovely big farmhouse kitchen, very elegant dining room for more formal dining, fantastic sitting room for drinks and relaxing in the evenings. Beds and bedrooms all lovely and comfortable and clean. Nice clean bathrooms. Very spacious, it was great for a big group. We had friends staying at Petite Jonquet too, and they were very comfortable there, and would walk over to join us for breakfast (the local bakery would deliver us croissants and pasties each morning) and then in the evening for drinks and dinner. We enjoyed our lovely walks and bike rides in the surrounding countryside, and enjoyed many day trips to beautiful villages, countryside and the seaside... L' almondier restaurant in nearby Bourg Achard was lovely too... Delicious food!
Chateau Du Jonquay was among one of my best for beautiful memories. I took my children and grandchildren for a two week adventure spending the best with them in this beautiful, quiet, perfect country french setting. Cows, working farms, beautiful quiet and well stocked villages and beauty abound. The best quote came from my three year old grandson two days after returning to the U.S. while having breakfast." Daddy, I wish we were having breakfast at the Chateau". What more could anyone say. It was the best and we hope to make a return visit for yet, another memorial breakfast. Thank you Jane and Stephen for allowing us to share your fabulous home.
We rented both the Chateau and le Petit Jonquay as well. We had a large group staying in Normandy for the World Equestrian Games. The location provided easy access to both venues of the competition. It was the perfect size for our group and we enjoyed the patio outside Le Petit Jonquay in particular. The house was comfortable and well furnished. The town of Bourg-Achard is charmingly delightful. I would recommend the Chateau to anyone wanting to see Normandy.
Chateau Jonquay played host to our wonderful family holiday. Set in a very peaceful rural area, we all had a great time. Owners were v helpful with lots of recommendations etc. Super-comfy beds, linen etc. There are a few things that maybe need updating (outside furniture, oven) and a few things I may have done a bit differently (comfier / less formal sitting room, vacuum the pool before arrival) but none of this matters when you have a wonderful family and can spend a whole week in their company.
Set in the gorgeous Normandy countryside, Chateau du Jonquay is utterly charming. We loved it's authenticity and extraordinary decor (wait till you see the bedrooms!). The Chateau was perfectly prepared with lots of information on where to visit. Honfleur, Monet's Garden and Deauville were my favourites plus Rouen is brilliant for shopping. And local L'Amandier Restaurant is a treat not to be missed. Staying here really was the highlight of our trip and we definitely plan to be back. We had a great holiday.
Conveniently located one hour to Paris via A13. Between historic Rouen and luxurious beaches of Deauville. Convenient to all Normandy attractions,: DDay Beaches, Monet's gardens, Champs de Bataille golf and chateau, Mont St Michel, Bayeux tapestry etc. Local french villages with daily markets, monasteries, garden tours and museums. Farming countryside for quiet walks, biking, cafés and friendly locals. Near multiple Michelin recognized restaurants.
