Champagne and Michelin Chef

Oliver’s Travels Guests will be welcomed on their arrival evening with two bottles of French champagne and pre-dinner canapés for 12 guests provided by the local Michelin restaurant! The château can also recommend a variety of tours and activities to experience the area.

At this chateau in Normandy, modern New York design meets classic French elegance. You'll instantly see why this chic 17th century chateau has been featured on the covers of Maison Normandes and Elle Decor.

The sunny interior has been expertly designed, with stylish sitting areas throughout the house where you can relax, have a chat, and gaze out towards the banks of the Seine.

Outside you’ll marvel at the beauty of the arbor - where 10 can dine together under the grape leaves. A stone’s throw away is the chateau's private swimming pool surrounded by comfortable loungers. If you want to explore beyond the grounds, borrow a bicycle and take a ride through the countryside. You can also opt for a day of golfing, or exploring the bakeries and markets of the local villages.

A 40 minute drive will take you to the capital of the Normandy region, Rouen (35 km). This medieval city holds historic and artistic treasures, like works by Monet at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen. Indeed, Monet's own gardens at Giverny are just an hour's drive from the chateau. With Paris and the D-Day beaches each only 2 hours away, northern France is at your fingertips.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • Conveniently located near many of Normandy's most interesting attractions.
  • The Chateau's games consoles will be a welcome addition for parents with teenagers!
  • This impressive chateau features a playroom with games, DVDs, toys, and even a Play-Station for the kids (or for a cold winter night).
  • The formal dining room and large country kitchen makes entertaining a pleasure.
  • An hour's drive will take you to the sea city of Le Havre.

What you should know…

  • Don't forget to add the chateau's location on your GPS - you may be near Paris, but the area feels remote.
  • The local villages are pretty quiet so you will have to drive a little further afield to find nightlife.

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!

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.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
7 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?

We fell in love with Chateau de Jonquier because it looked like the cover of a chocolate box, magnificent white exterior and pastel blue French shutters, it looked like it had tumbled from a romantic novel. It had been beautifully restored by a renowned New York interior designer as his own holiday home. The gardens are beautiful and its location among the fields with neighbours of Normandy cows is beautiful.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

It was occupied by the Germans in the World Wars and we are about to renovate its original cellars located under the chateau from when it was built in 1630. The cellar was used as a kitchen in the 1600’s and the food brought up via an outdoor staircase to the chatellain (owner). It used to have a bell tower which when rung would summon the local owner from the village to his chateau as it would mean he had visitors.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

Cannot say, have been sworn to secrecy!

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Must visit Rouen where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake while the town ate BBQ at the nearby restaurant. Must visit the beautiful fishing village of Honfleur and taste calvados.

Really eat?
A must do is also to taste the divine crème fraiche and butter which Normandy is famous for (all from its dairy cows in our fields). Our local Michelin restaurant in Bourg Achard - L’Amandier for a taste of local Normandy produce. Sometimes cooking classes can be arranged in advance.

Really see?

Deauville market and the beaches of Deauville.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?

Make sure you shop in the local town at the beautiful little French Boulanger (not the supermarket) to taste authentic French style pastries and croissants. Get out and explore the local area.

Reviews

  • I would be very happy to return at some point in the future

    Posted by Ian D. on 08/08/2016

    Hi Oliver’s Travels! I am very happy to report that the Chateau de Jonquier was a delight to stay in. The position, the garden, the rooms were all excellent. A high point for us was the Restaurant L'Armandier (I think that was the name!). The owners were a delight to deal with. They prepared an excellent dinner for us in the Chateau. It was so good, all 14 of us are in their restaurant later in the week. The food and the warmth was a delight to experience. I would be very happy to return at some point in the future.
