Overview

Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village Ideal for Parties

In the delightful Normandy countryside sits the enchanting Chateau la Monte Epinge. This 18th century chateau is a lived in and loved family home that offers grand but comfortable accommodation for great value.

The Chateau la Monte Epinge is 30 minutes from the dramatic Normandy sandy beaches overlooking Jersey. The chateau had an interesting part to play in the Second World War. It was commandeered by the German army and became one of their HQs for communications.

Chateau la Monte Epinge can sleep 27 guests. Also on site there is a Carriage House (sleeps 12), and the Mews (sleeps 6) that can be booked along with the chateau making the maximum capacity for the estate 45 guests. Being so close to the UK, this is a superb long weekend chateau retreat. The chateau is rented on a self catering basis but catering is possible on request.

There is a phenomenal amount to do in Normandy. Cherbourg port is 15km away, and the charming town of Brix is 3km away.

Surfing is possible, of course, and it is well worth visiting the Second World War landing beaches and museums.

For the nocturnal there is always the Cherbourg casino and night club.

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!

Reviews

  • A Real Home

    Posted by David on 01/10/2017

    This is an amazing place to holiday with a large family group. Our children and grandchildren alike can run wild and are encouraged to do so by Mark the owner. A real home to enjoy rather than a sterile holiday let.

  • A charming Chateau in a tranquil setting!

    Posted by Sophie S. on 27/02/2017

    Brimming with character, this Chateau is ideally suited to accommodate large groups of friends/ family with young children. Our children and dogs were in seventh heaven with plenty of outside space to keep them entertained for hours. For a winter stay like ours, the large Inglenook fire was a huge feature and a welcome way to relax in the evenings. The Chateau offers a vast amount of accommodation over 3 floors. The top floor with its bedrooms and kitchen/ sitting room made for a great "den" for the children. The condition of the decor is not perfect however this actually suited our group well and allowed for a more relaxing stay. Whilst the owners Fiona and Mark were not present during our stay, they were a delight to deal with.

  • Great week

    Posted by anonymous on 17/09/2014

    Chateau La Monte Epinge was great for a laid back week with friends to celebrate my birthday. Mark and Fiona were lovely hosts who informed us really well of all there is to do in the area. We particularly loved going to the surrounded beaches and enjoying the sea and the sun. Beautiful part of France and so easy to get to via Cherbourg.
