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 5) that can be booked along with the chateau making the maximum capacity for the estate 44 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.

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.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! 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!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. 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.

The 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.

  • 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.

  • A birthday party with 28 guests

    Posted by Melissa Mercer on 07/12/2011

    I rented the Chateau la Monte Epinge last weekend for a birthday party with 28 guests. The chateau was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. It was just like being at home (albeit a very large version of home) and so comfortable and 'lived in' that we did not have to worry about the children or dogs and everyone was able to enjoy themselves. The rooms were large enough to get everyone together around the open fire in one room when we wanted but with 4 living rooms there was space for us to spread out between a dance area and a number of quieter rooms in the evenings. The surrounding forest was perfect for walking and we collected pockets full of... ...chestnuts to roast over the fire. Despite appearing to be really isolated, the chateau was actually within just a few minutes' drive of a major road, so it was easy to get to and from the ports and the Normandy beaches and other places of interest. Fiona and Marc were very helpful with information about things to do locally and in their recommendation of James and his team, who organised a dinner party for us on one of the nights we were at the chateau. All in all it was a great venue and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to rent a large house in France.
