Built in the 18th century, Chateau Des Lucioles is a majestic holiday and wedding venue strategically located in a peaceful and quiet environment only 9 km away from Bernay, in the beautiful south Normandy region.

Surrounded by a 5 acres wooded park, the main Chateau occupies an area of 1200m² and offers accommodation for up to 38 guests. With its annex buildings, the whole estate covers a total area of 2500m² offering accommodation for up to 92 guests.

The ground floor of more than 300m² features 4 spacious lounges and a large kitchen, whereas bedrooms, bathrooms and additional dining and receptions room are spread over the first and second floors. There is also a large basement with splendid cellars converted into a games room and a museum dedicated to Bookend.

Steeped in history, the property was built at the end of the reign of Louis XV by Philippe of Faÿ. It combines the charm of a rural location with the nobility of a brick and stone building of the mid 18th century. A cute chapel and side pavilions are also available.

Until 2009, the property used to host a teenager rehabilitation centre. It was then fully restored adding charming parquet floor and fireplaces. As a result, it has preserved its traditional and authentic touch, while offering modern comforts to its lucky guests.

Please note that the advertised prices are for up to 38 guests only, not including the cottages or marquee. Additional guests can be accommodated in the château’s four cottages at an additional cost, in order to accommodate up to 92 guests. Please see the ‘Features’ and T&Cs' tabs for details.

  • C'est Magnifique!

    Posted by Tiphaine on 24/10/2017

    Magnifique château avec possibilité de loger plus de 90 invités. Les chambres sont pleines de charme. Nous avons pu organiser la cérémonie et le cocktail dans le parc et le dîner sous le chapiteau. Tout était parfait, nous avons passé un week-end magique ! Nous recommandons grandement!

  • Heavenly

    Posted by Joelle on 01/10/2017

    I still cannot believe how lucky we were to be able to get married here. This is a venue that will live in my happiest memories forever, made all the happier by the heavenly setting. This is such a special house.

  • An Absolute Pleasure

    Posted by Anonymous on 24/09/2017

    Living in San Francisco and planning our wedding at Chateau 6,000 miles away was no easy endeavor but once we arrived any fear was abated. The Chateau and its managers, were an absolute pleasure to work with and made everything so easy for us. We highly recommend the Chateau for any fun weekend event you might be throwing - its the perfect setting and a really wonderful mix of rustic charm and modern elegance. Such a beautiful Chateau! And the kids and adults loved it. Our only wish now is to make it back there again!

  • One of the Best Decisions we've made!

    Posted by Daniel on 22/09/2017

    Getting married at Chateau was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Everything about our wedding weekend was perfect. We rented the Chateau from Friday - Monday. On the Friday evening we had a lovely meal for family & wedding party. The wedding day itself was fantastic - when you're building up to an event like that, where so much organisation goes into it beforehand, you expect a few things to go wrong - nothing did, at all. Tiphaine and her team were superb, they made sure everything ran seamlessly. The party we had the day after the wedding was the perfect end to the best weekend of our lives. I hope one of our friends decides to get married there so we can go back!

  • A truly exceptional stay

    Posted by Emma D. on 11/01/2017

    As part of an internship, we had a truly exceptional stay as the entire castle (lounges and rooms) is very comfortable, well heated, well equipped, and spacious. Although it has been completely restored and in perfect condition, this place has kept its soul, its paintings, an authentic style and everything is decorated with care. This was not the purpose of the stay, but we were able to enjoy the game rooms for relaxation and a large park for ballads. And to top it all the welcome was very warm. Thank you for everything !

  • Highly recommended

    Posted by Julie C. on 28/10/2016

    It is a great place. A perfectly maintained 18th century castle, what better dream for its wedding? Having the opportunity to sleep 90 people on the site is a real plus. We loved the Chateau, the rooms are beautiful, the lounges exceptional, and the staff is very attentive. I highly recommend it for a magical weekend.

  • What a magical weekend

    Posted by Fiona on 15/10/2016
