About zoe mckinley
.We have lived in the chateau since 2006. We bought the chateau from Zoe's mother who bought the house back in 1989. We have 2 children who have had a lovely childhood and who are now bilingual.
zoe mckinley purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why zoe mckinley chose Monfréville
The Chateau has a unique charm. Its a wonderful property to be around & the grounds are beautiful. It is tranquility at its best. There is buckets of history to be had in the area and the chateau itself, which dates back to William the Conqueror & was home to Walt Disney's family.
What makes this Cottage unique
.We live here all year round & are here to help in any way we can. Amazing bakery delights are delivered to your door every morning and probably a visit from Hector the labrador too!!

Gorgeous and relaxing
We have visited Chateau de Monfreville every year for the past 9 years. Words cannot express the beauty, the hospitality, and the comforts of rose and pond cottage. Both cottages are tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable for groups, and children, and come stocked with all the essentials. The location is superb, clean and easy to access all the tourist sites. The McKinley family are gracious hosts,problem solvers, and warm hosts. You will not be disappointed. We look forward to our annual visit, and find it difficult to leave this magical place.
Perfect place for a relaxing holiday
Our second visit to Chateau Monfreville...we love it! Rose Cottage is a perfect little hideaway, situated in the grounds of the Chateau. Everything you need for a totally relaxing holiday is right here. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need...including a woodburner in the sitting room. Beautiful private little south facing garden with outside eating and barbq, bikes ...if you feel energetic, hot tub - great after a day exploring the Normandy beaches,, a little honesty shop, ping pong table, chickens and happy pigs who will sit on command....for food :-) and of course, Hector...the happiest dog in the world.
Zoe and Paul...the most charming hosts , who make you feel like long friends...always happy to share wine and a laugh.
If you haven't been yet...put this charming place on your to do list...
Thank you Jim & Sonia. We love having you to stay - we hope to see you again some time soon.

I stayed in Pond Cottage for a week with elderly parents , and enjoyed everything about the accommodation . The cottage has everything needed for a home away from home feeling. Well equipped, spacious, comfortable, and quiet. The property is only minutes away from major D Day sites, Bayeux etc. The owners Paul,Zoe and Molly are wonderful hosts, bringing us bread every day, and providing us with farm eggs and a great welcome pack. The chateau and gardens are really beautiful. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
Everything was very well done
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed all that Rose cottage had to offer. It was the perfect ending to our France holiday . We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary and could not of picked a better spot. We would highly recommend a visit here. Zoe and Paul have ticked all the boxes in offering wonderful hospitality.
