Experience characterful château life close to the glorious Alabaster coast of Normandy at this charming holiday home near Saint-Valery-en-Caux.

Staying at Château Falaises will make you feel part of a bygone era with its air of French elegance alongside historic comfort. The wood-panelled lounge features cosy sofas around the impressive fireplace whilst the traditional kitchen is perfectly equipped and ideal for keen cooks, a private chef or perhaps even a cookery class. Serve your feasts in the grand dining room with beautifully arched windows framing the picturesque views of the glorious gardens.   

Across the château there are nine bedrooms featuring a range of beds meaning flexible options whether you are a family or simply good friends wanting to spend quality time in characterful surroundings. Welcome additions to this inviting home include a TV and DVD player, music library and games room with table football and board games for all to enjoy.

Outside the gardens are so spacious, a tranquil retreat with century-old trees, vast lawns and so much nature all around you. Gather together on warm summer evenings drinking local cidre or calvados with the backdrop of your magnificent holiday home.

Exploring this region is a joy with so many wonderful places so near. Start off in the charming harbour town of Saint-Valery-en-Caux, just 4km away, and its vast beach partly backed by the Alabaster cliffs this region is so famous for. Follow this with a trip to one of France’s most beautiful villages, Veules Les Roses, with its river, waterwheels and thatched cottages, and visit its delightful beach with its promenade and pier.

As well as many other brilliant beaches, there are breathtaking coastal paths for keen walkers, golf and tennis close by and lots of opportunities for horse-riding and cycling. Further afield, soak up the atmosphere at the vibrant Saturday morning market in Dieppe or spend the day experiencing classic French seaside life in Honfleur or Deauville.

With such an alluring coast, wonderful food, spectacular scenery and family-friendly activities, this part of Normandy makes a fantastic holiday destination for everyone.

In the Seine-Maritime, a beautiful part of Normandy, and just 4km from the Alabaster coast, Château Falaises is set in its own spacious grounds, part of a small village close to Saint-Valery-en-Caux.

Dieppe ferry terminal is around a forty-minute drive away whilst other ports such as Calais, Le Havre and Caen-Ouistreham are about two to three hours by car, making this a great location if arriving by ferry or Eurotunnel. Alternatively, take the train from Paris to Yvetot.

Saint-Valery-en-Caux is the place to go for a supermarket, shops, restaurants and a Friday morning market as well as learning about its interesting history in the second world war. It’s a pretty harbour town which is filled with flowers in the summer and has lots of characterful architecture and nice places to eat. Further inland, the town of Cany-Barville has a greater choice of amenities including a lovely Monday morning market.

You are also well positioned for an 18-hole golf course (also offering foot-golf!), less than 5km away, as well as horse-riding opportunities in the area. For a unique experience, there is even a flying school close by which offers sight-seeing excursions by air!

This glorious part of the Normandy coastline, Pays de Caux, is known for its white Alabaster cliffs. The beach at Saint-Valery-en-Caux is a good place to start with its pebbly shores (and sand as the tide stretches out) partly backed by incredible cliffs.
Veules-les-Roses is one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ with its pretty river, water wheels and thatched cottages. Head to the beach with its promenade, pier and charming beach huts – at the weekend look out for people selling the exquisite salt and freshwater oysters, Veulaise, a true local delicacy.

Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer has a large sandy beach as well as a brilliant fish market. There is also a kite-surfing school or head to the sailing centre at Plage de Quiberville-sur-Mer. Travel down the 200 steps on the famous stone staircase at Sotteville-sur-Mer or follow some of the incredible walking paths along this part of the coast.

Varengeville-sur-Mer has yet more wonderful scenery and you can walk through the famous valley between the towering cliffs at Valleuse de Vasterival. The gardens at Bois des Moutiers are also a must for nature lovers.

Dieppe is another fine day out, especially on a Saturday morning with one of the largest and arguably best markets in Normandy showcasing all sorts of regional produce. Stop off in one of Dieppe’s characterful restaurants and try fish stew, sole, mackerel or scallops.

Other great places a little further afield in Normandy include Fécamp, Étretat and the classic French seaside resorts of Honfleur and Deauville. Alternatively, head inland to discover the historic beauty of Rouen, perhaps even continuing on to Monet’s Giverny Gardens, just under two hours away.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The Alabaster coastline offers great appeal to families with children of all ages.
There are some amazing beaches, some pebbly, others sandy and often backed by the dramatic cliffs that this coastline is so famous for. Children will love creating sandcastles as the tide flows out and there is a choice of summer watersports such as kite-surfing, sailing, kayaks, paddle boarding and catamarans at various locations.

One of the local seaside villages has a mini-golf course for youngsters or head to the 18-hole golf course, around 5km away, for a game of foot-golf. There are also plenty of horse-riding opportunities in the region as well as places to hire bikes or enjoy long family walks, especially along the coast.

Veules les Roses is especially picturesque with the shortest river in France, watermills, little thatched cottages and a great beach with charming beach huts, a picturesque promenade and a pier.

Dieppe is another great town to visit with boat trips, museums and an aquarium for rainy days. There’s also a public swimming pool, crazy golf, a summer funfair during certain weeks as well as playgrounds and a skate park.

Owner Profile

  • How long have you owned the property?

The family acquired the house in 1973 and it continues to remain in the family. In 1991 the daughter was married there. Renovations have been made since 2013. The trees of both alleys in front and behind the house are more than 200 years old.

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

To keep the soul and charm we have left some personal items. This way you do not feel like you are in a hotel. We would like to feel like in your own home. Thank you for taking care of this house as if it were your own home. We wish you a very pleasant stay.

  • Are there any interesting stories in its history?

There is not a precise date when the manor house has been constructed but it is likely that it was built as you discover it at the beginning of the 19th century just after the French revolution in the “Directoire” style. The facade consists of red and yellow “Dieppe” bricks. This manor house is fairly classical in the region. The interior decoration of the living room and the dining room has remained the same as it was when it was constructed.

Reviews

  • Stylish living

    Created on 18/06/2020

    The property is charming, in lovely countryside not far from St Valery en Caux which is a small town with all the facilities you need. We especially liked the lawn at the rear which was a great place to eat outside with the imposing image of the house as a backdrop. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and there was space in the house for everyone to do their own thing. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, as is the house in general, the bedrooms spacious with comfortable beds and modern ensuite bathrooms. It is stylish and elegant living for sure in great surroundings. We are definitely coming back as it makes a great break for a long journey as well as being a destination in its own right. We found it easily from the instructions and all dealings with the owners were very cordial during the booking. Recommended.

  • Merveilleuse propriété familiale au calme

    Created on 16/06/2020

    Propriété idéalement située à quelques kilomètres de Saint Valery en Caux, de ses commerces (charmants !), du golf et de sa plage, à moins de 5 minutes en voiture. Nous avons séjourné dans cette merveilleuse propriété familiale qui est au calme total, siégeant au cœur d’un parc aux arbres séculaires. La terrasse ensoleillée parfaite pour se prélasser ou pour déjeuner autour d’un BBC convient également pour se retrouver autour de l’apéritif! L’élégante demeure est parfaitement équipée pour recevoir des familles ou groupes professionnels avec tout le confort moderne. Enfin, pour ne rien gâcher, nous avons été adorablement accueillis et avons reçu des conseils précieux quant aux visites à faire dans la région (jardins, randos, ports et villages…), y compris un tout nouveau parcours 18 trous en Normandie ouvert depuis 2017 avec un cadre contemporain et un paysage qui fait penser parfois à l'Ecosse. De beaux paysages entre des petits dénivelés de plaine et des plus grands dénivelés dans un vallon caché. Accueil très sympathique et réservation facile. Le golf est à 3/4 km de la maison et fait également restaurant. Le professeur Laurent nous a fait progresser et il existe de nombreuses formules pour des stages.
