Overview of C16th Normandy Chateau

What Oliver loves…

  • Spend your evenings in the 16th Century Dovecote which has been converted into a bar and lounge
  • The five hectares of gardens and small wood are perfect for outdoor fun.
  • The medieval dining room & huge fireplace will truly make you feel like a king (or queen)!

What you should know…

  • No pool but the nearby sea is great fun for a paddle
  • One bedroom does not have WIFI access

The C16th Normandy Chateau is situated in a green valley within walking distance of an ancient village. A long drive takes you up to the charming, fully restored manor house that can sleep up to 18 guests. The chateau sits among beautiful gardens with plenty of garden furniture available and a purpose built BBQ area. The tranquil setting of the chateau includes a small stream running through the grounds, two ponds (that cannot currently be used for fishing) and a wood to explore.

The property is ideally suited to large groups for special occasions. Contact Oliver's VIP Concierge about optional breakfasts that can be served outside on the patio, surrounded by flowers, or inside by candlelight in the medieval dining room.

For those who love history, the chateau offers an evocative slice of France's past. Within the grounds are the ruins of former chateau buildings, a well dating back to 1753, a dovecote from the 16th Century, the original wine caves (now out of use and used for storage) and the stone windows of a 12th Century chapel that will simply steal your heart!

*Prices are based on 18 guests, but C16th Normandy Chateau Estate is available for larger groups of up to 26 guests to rent.

Interior & Grounds

The chateau has been converted in to several self-catering apartments and extra bedrooms all within the main building. This makes it ideal for a number of families holidaying together who wish to maintain a level of privacy. All rooms have central heating.

On the ground floor the medieval dining room, with huge fireplace (decorative only) and many candles, seats 25. The salon bedroom is a lovely well-proportioned double room with luxury en-suite bathroom that also turns into a sitting room. The adjoining sunny garden room has two single beds, a small double and private access to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a well-proportioned classical bedroom suite with oak parquet floor, panelled walls, rose marble fireplace, double bed and en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, oven, hob, fridge, freezer and cooking facilities for the group.

On the first floor the stylishly furnished apartment in the left wing is accessed via the tower. The living room has original beams, a log fire and comfortable chairs and sofa. There is also a large kitchen, a triple bedroom, a double bedroom and a bathroom. The next apartment on this floor has a living room with double bed, a corner kitchen, an additional triple bedroom and a bathroom. The third apartment has a kitchen, a spacious living room, a double bedroom and a bathroom. The last bedroom on this floor is a very comfortable suite room with beautiful antique furniture, an extra large double bed, comfortable chairs and sofa, log fire, dinner table and en-suite bathroom.

On the second floor are two adjoining triple bedrooms with wash basin and WC. On the other side of the chateau, also on the second floor, is a double bedroom with bathroom en suite, plus a little mezzanine that sleeps one small child.

The manor house is set in five hectares of gardens, including a small wood. There are enclosed gardens where children can play, including playgrounds, slide, swings, cabin and games such as badminton, cricket, boules, and table tennis. They can also feed the donkeys and horses in the paddocks. Secure parking is available and the chateau sits 500 metres from the road (a small road) so there is no traffic noise.

Guests also have access to a 16th century dovecot, a lovely tower, which offers a unique and special atmosphere. It is ideal for a for dance parties or a nice meal with a group of friends. We can also organise a delicious suckling pig on the spit, or roast lamb.

There is plenty of good quality garden furniture and a number of picnic tables outside. The BBQ area is situated under huge trees where you can enjoy evening parties in the park by candlelight.

Map, Location & Local Information

Ancient villages, chateaux, manors, churches and abbeys can be found within a short distance from the chateau. Normandy has a rich history and is proud of its cultural heritage from the Romans, Celts, Vikings and Normans.  The local village was once the feudal domain of the Bruces, ancestors of Scotland's famous King Robert the Bruce.

The chateau is close to beautiful sandy beaches (20 minutes), a wide choice of restaurants (5 minutes), a children’s animal park (15 minutes), the traditional French markets with fresh local produce (10 minutes), the La Maison du Biscuit hypermarket/shopping area (10 minutes), Mont St. Michel (1.5 hour), the D-Day landing beaches (30 minutes), the Bayeux Tapestry (1 hour) and Sea Life Cherbourg (10 minutes).  Calvados from the local farmer and wine tasting can be provided if you are interested.

There is a restaurant 8km away for simple, good value French food. The local markets on Monday morning in Bricquebec (7km) and Friday morning in Valognes (10km) are recommended. Within walking distance of the chateau, in the local village, is a bakery, post office, bar, butcher, medical centre and pharmacy.

Tennis and horse riding can be found locally. Golf is 6km away. The area is well suited for walking, hiking and (experienced) biking.

The Region

History and gastronomy go hand-in-hand in Normandy, making it a great choice if culture and fine dining are what you’re looking for in a holiday! There’s still plenty on offer besides the food and tales of yesteryear, however – you can take a tour around some of the beautiful inland towns and villages or head to the coast, where you’ll find a mixture of wide sandy beaches and rugged, romantic cliffs. If you’re not already convinced to head to one of our villas in Normandy (or maybe if you’ve already booked) you’ll find a wealth of great things to do, see and eat in our ultimate Normandy travel guide!

Catering & Services

There are various options available.  A quote can be provided depending on your requirements. The owners are very flexible.

Guests can hire a French cook, who will prepare simple meals or specialities that include roasted meat and fruits de mer.

This is by no means an exhaustive list, so please just contact Oliver’s VIP Concierge Team to help you arrange any of those little extras that can really make the difference.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Reviews for C16th Normandy Chateau

C16th Normandy Chateau Reviews


  • What a weekend

    Posted by Ella H on 27/06/2014

    A group of 26 friends made it to this magical place cycling from Cherbourg on a beautiful scenic route. The Chateaux is so beautiful and all the rooms were kitted out with grand beds and furniture - we felt like Kings and Queens for the weekend.

    Days were filled with walking to the local bakery, playing rounders, table tennis, eating lovely French food or drinking beer on the lawn. Evenings were filled with posh sit down dinners in the medieval dining room, often singing along to the the piano, and then dancing. We had a masquerade ball on one of the nights. We were so looked after and had such a fun weekend. Will always remember it.
