Overview

Wedding Venue

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.

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.

Reviews

  • Highly Recommended

    Created on 19/10/2016

    Transported back centuries. Wonderful ambiance in the dining room and a great breakfast. The proprietor has restored the Chateau beautifully and takes pleasure in explaining the history to his guests.

  • Authentic Charm

    Posted by James on 21/09/2016

    The Chateau has a wonderful, old world, authentic charm. We traipsed around the grounds and the neighborhood in the morning and just enjoyed the pastoral beauty of the area. It's a great central location for exploring the countryside.

  • 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.
