Chateau overview - owner's description

With style reminiscent of a miniature Versailles, this chateau in Normandy conjures the grandeur of the 17th and 18th centuries.

With style reminiscent of a miniature Versailles, this chateau in Normandy conjures the grandeur of the 17th and 18th centuries. You'll admire the chateau's classic touches (the stonework in the garden or the Aubusson carpets on the floor), but you'll love the modern amenities, like the jetted tubs and the villa's private pool.
This is no dark and dreary castle - large windows on both sides of the chateau let light stream in throughout the day. Sportsmen and women will adore the private tennis court, fishing in the moat, and the extensive grounds - bicycles are available for anyone to take a tour. The beach at Fontenay-Sur-Mer is within easy biking distance. Through the gardens, 100m away from the main chateau, is a separate cottage that's perfect for a small family who prefers more privacy.
Here, your family chateau holiday includes the best of both worlds: peaceful French countryside, with access to historic sites. Only 15 minutes away WWII history comes to life in the town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise and Utah Beach, the site of the D-Day landing. Cherbourg & Caen is the nearest airport, but it may also be convenient to drive from Paris, 3 hours away.
Please note this property is available for groups of up to 14 guests when renting the chateau and the cottage. For smaller parties of up to 10 guests, the chateau only can be rented at a reduced price.
