Perfect place for families
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.
We recently stayed here with four kids. This place feels like visiting your grandmother’s house in the country. Older home, but very comfortable. Don’t let the first impression out you off - our stay was very comfortable. The kids loved the ping pong table. The home is very convenient to Bayeux and the Normandy beaches. My only complaint is that the WiFi was very slow - my 256kb T-Mobile service was much faster.
Unfortunately we are in the countryside and the internet bandwidth is very poor, mainly because of works on the network. We asked our internet provider to fix the problem. Currently, the 4G mobile network provides a better connection to the internet. ( we try to find a solution with a 4 G router) .
Very spacious, lovely place.
The property is very spacious, in beautiful location very close to Bayeux.
It comes with a massive garden with a pool offering lots of fun for the kids.
Marie is very helpful, and all you need for a fantastic holiday is provided.
The internet is sometimes a bit moody, but I would always highly recommend this place.
Thank you very much Marie for a lovely time,
Great hospitality beautiful old house full of character

Spacious accommodation idyllic setting
I stayed here with three friends on our tour of the Normandy battlefields and other cultural attractions. The village itself is very small but has a friendly bakery that opens everyday except Wednesday. The nearest town Port-en-Bassin is a short drive away and has a small supermarket and restaurants bars etc. Our host was very welcoming and upon our arrival took us to the town and showed us the local facilities. The location is very quiet but close enough to Bayeax and the major shops and main road to be very convenient. The house is quite basic but clean and functional and has all we needed for our stay, the weather was great so we BBQ'd every evening and ate on a large table in the rear courtyard. The highlight for me was watching a sparrow hawk hunting for bats over the back garden at dusk. The pool is clean and great for a cool down after a long day out, the walled garden would be very suitable for families with children but you would need to supervise them in the pool. Our host gave us a guided tour of the main chateaux which was very interesting and very worthwhile. Overall an excellent stay and good value for money. Très bien merci Martin.
Wonderful stay at Chateau de Vaulaville
Oh wow! What a beautiful & amazing place to stay! We traveled here with my family (husband, kids--14, 11, 6-- and myself) as well as uncle & cousin. We had plenty of room! The Chateau is very close to the DDay Beaches, Port-en-Bessin and Bayeux (15-20min drive). The history of the property is so fascinating and our hostess, Marie Helene, was so kind & helpful! She shared with us much about her family's history in the area, as well as touring us in her home. The Chateau itself is wonderful--an almost 300 year old "castle" (as my kids called it), but with a few modern conveniences. The kitchen & baths are updated, and the bedding is comfortable. There is nothing overly fancy about the inside, but everything works & you do feel like you are living in a piece of history. The kitchen is fine--we didn't cook meals here, but instead had baguettes & cheese & wine & there were ample plates, glasses & cutlery. My one suggestion would be to provide a few dish towels (bath towels are provided). The kids enjoyed visiting with the donkeys in the adjoining field, as well as the many farm kitties. It is so quiet here--someday I would love to come back just to enjoy the relaxing locale (too many great things to do, though--we explored the Normandie area a LOT!)
We took many day trips from this perfectly central location: Omaha, Utah Beaches, Bayeux, Caen, Mont St Michel, Saint Malo. We also explored the closest town of Port-en-Bessin, which has nice restaurants & shops as well as a lovely harbor. Thank you Marie Helene for sharing your home & your history with us. We will never forget our time here!
Thank you very much for this nice review . I hope that you will come back and I promise to provide more dish towels.
