Château de L’Empereur is located in 125 acres of beautiful parkland featuring woods, fields, ponds and wildlife such as rabbits, deer and birds.

It’s only 1.7km to the local village where you will find a bakery, a couple of restaurants and other shops including two supermarkets on the outskirts, close to the château. The village has an interesting history relating to World War Two and is included in some of the Battle of Normany tour guides of the region.

This is a fantastic location for exploring the nearby sights of Normandy.  It is an especially great base for exploring the D-Day Landing beaches which are just a short drive away. Arromanches (36km) and Omaha (47km) are examples of two beaches of historical importance as well as the batteries and cliffs of Longues-sur-Mer (35km) just north of Bayeux.

The historic town of Bayeux (27km) is well known for the UNESCO classified Bayeux Tapestry, depicting the Norman’s conquest of England. It is a beautiful town with many renowned restaurants, historical buildings and interesting museums about this fascinating part of Normandy.

Heading north some of Normandy’s prettiest towns are along the coastline such as the elegant seaside resort of Deauville (77km) and Honfleur (93km), one of Normandy’s most picturesque spots, making the perfect coastal day trip.

Along the coast you’ll also find numerous long wide sandy beaches within half an hour or head to the rugged cliffs a little further away.  Sand yachting is very popular on the coast with centres in Asnelles (37km) plus there are other watersports such as kayaking, diving, sailing and stand-up paddling nearby.

Golf-lovers can enjoy a number of stunning Norman golf courses across this region, including Omaha Beach Golf (36km) whilst there are some beautiful walks plus cycling trails to follow. Horse-riding is a popular pursuit in the region with the particularly well-regarded Pole International Du Cheval within an hours drive.

Of course, Normandy is the home of timeless villages, idyllic châteaux and amazing regional cuisine. Drive east to the archetypal Norman village of Beuvron-en-Auge with its half-timbered houses and an award winning typical restaurant, combined with a visit to Château de Crèvecoeur and museum (62km). Other worthy châteaux in the region include  Balleroy Castle (24km) and Château Vendeuvre (60km), classed as one of France’s historic monuments. 

Be sure to visit one of the fine Calvados cellars and learn how the drink is made and combine with a farm that offers regional dairy products to sample; private tours can be arranged.

Other highlights include one of France's oldest University cities, Caen (30km), the seaside town of Deauville (77km) from the 'la belle époque' era and the stunning granite island of Mont St Michel (100km).
