The local town is just 10mins walk from the chateau and has two boulangeries (one with a wood-fired brick oven), a wine cave (where you can also buy the local calvados and cider for which Normandy is famous), an excellent butcher and charcutier, a mercerie (where the town's hospitable mayor presides over sewing supplies), a pharmacy, a convenience store, a bank and a bar.
On a Sunday, you'll be able to buy locally-produced camembert and foie gras, fresh vegetables and locally-raised meat and poultry. You'll also note the 19th Century church with its stained windows of the saints of France and ornately carved altars. On hallowed ground outside the church is the obligatory war monument to the France's lost generation of . Outside the mairie is artillery from the Battle of Normandy of 1945.
A 15-minute drive away is the charming cathedral town of Sees, one of the oldest diocese in France. The twin towers of its 13th-century gothic cathedral, lit from within at night, are a luminous beacon for miles around. Today, Sees is a bustling small town with a lively Saturday market.
Bayeux: This lovely town combines the roots of Norman history with proximity to the D-Day beaches of World War II. The Bayeux Museum displays one of oldest and certainly most famous embroidered “tapestries” (it is actually a cloth, not a woven tapestry) in the world. The 11th-century tapestry depicts the Norman conquest of England in 1066 and is said to have been embroidered by William the Conqueror's Anglo-Saxon queen, Mathilda. The soaring cathedral, dating from the same epoch, was built by William's half-brother, Bishop Odo.
Numerous D-day beaches, museums and memorial sights are located along the Normandy coast, about 100km to the north of the chateau.
Not just for history enthusiasts, people also visit the seaside and coastal towns of Normandy for the sandy beaches and excellent seafood. You will find the best oysters in Courseulles!
Mont St Michel: Monastery and fortress, Mont Saint Michel rises from the sea just off the coast of Normandy: “like a fantastical manor, like a palace in a dream, eerily strange and beautiful” wrote Guy de Maupassant. You can walk to Saint-Michel at low tide. The abbey was founded in 708, one of the first sites consecrated to the Archangel Michael. The abbey is a textbook example of medieval architecture and its gardens, where the intrepid monks cultivated vegetables for their austere meals, are magnificent. You'll eat richer fare in one of the harbor town's many restaurants. Be sure to visit the boutique of Mere Poulard, known to generations of French schoolchildren for her buttery cookies.
Paris: The ultimate day trip from the Chateau is, of course, Paris. Only 1.5 hours on the train you can spend the day in Paris exploring the fast-paced City of Light and return back to the quiet French countryside for a locally prepared dinner and restful night's sleep.
