Between the historic towns of Dieppe and Fécamp, Château Trois Tours sits grandly in a beautiful estate only a few minutes from the glorious beaches of the Alabaster coastline in this magnificent part of Normandy.

The castle dates back to the early 17th century and is typical of the Louis XIII architecture of this time; it’s no wonder the château is listed with the French National Trust. The distinctive three towers were added 200 years later, adding to the romantic ambience across the impressive estate.

Inside the majestic castle, grand rooms offer ample space in the traditional salon, beautiful library and home cinema room whilst a wood-panelled dining room and superb contemporary kitchen with its historic feature fireplace mean cooking, or being cooked for, is a real joy. Over the top two floors, there are nine traditionally styled bedrooms with sumptuous fabrics and homely furnishings, perfect for large families of any age. The renovation has been overseen by its refined owner, a former artistic director of Dior jewellery who has taken great care to combine antique style with modern design.

For 16-21 guests, your rental also includes the lovely cottage in an independent part of the estate. With modern interiors contrasting picture-book charm, this three-bedroom home is perfect for larger groups with six extra guests seeking a little independence, with the grounds separated only by a door in the tall garden wall.

The glorious 40-acre estate is filled with flowering rhododendrons and century old trees, including many rare species. Walk through the rose-covered archway to be greeted by the sight of two swimming pools, one ideal for family fun, the other designed for 25m long laps. Spend lazy days playing badminton, riding the château’s bikes or swinging by the tall trees. Sport-loving guests also benefit from tennis membership at a club nearby, as well as an 18-hole golf course and horse-riding within a short drive.

It takes just minutes to reach the local village with its beach and sailing club or drive a little further to Saint-Valery-en-Caux with its picturesque port, beachfront restaurants and wonderful views of the region’s famous white cliffs. One of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, Veules les Roses, is only 12km where you can explore idyllic thatched cottages, wander along the delightful river with its watermills or relax by the beach promenade, maybe even sampling the famous ‘Veulaise’ oysters.

Indeed, this is a region of freshly caught fish, local cheeses, calvados and even watercress from the banks of the Veules river which you can discover at wonderful markets across local towns. Normandy is also waiting to be explored from Rouen and Le Havre to the well-known seaside resorts of Honfleur and Deauville.

That said, you may just wish to spend your time closer to home walking along the stunning Pays de Caux coastline of Alabaster white cliffs, vast beaches and spectacular valleys in this wondrous part of the Seine-Maritime.

Only 4km from the Pays de Caux coast, in the Seine-Maritime department of northern France, Château Trois Tours commands a privileged location for exploring Normandy and beyond.

You can reach the sea in just over five minutes by car where you will find the beach, a sailing school which offers a variety of summer watersports, a lovely promenade for leisurely walks, a couple of café-bars and restaurants and even a casino. You’ll find further facilities around a ten-minute drive away in the town of Saint-Valery-en-Caux with its boulangeries and shops or head inland to Cany-Barville (8km) with its delightful Monday morning market.

For activity lovers, there is a golf course and tennis courts only a five-minute drive away and you can find horse-riding just a little further. For the most adventurous, there is even a flying school just minutes away.

This part of the Normandy coastline is known for its Alabaster white cliffs and stunning coastline. Only 12km away, Veules les Roses is one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, a former fishing village which is now popular with artists and is much loved due to its pretty thatched cottages, the watermills of the Veules river and the incredible beach with a promenade, pier and beach huts. Make sure you try some of the famous salt and freshwater oysters (Veulaise), especially at the weekend when they are sold by the coastline.

Another incredibly pretty coastal village is Varengeville-sur-Mer (32km) with its picturesque houses and wonderful scenery. Visit its exquisite gardens including the beautiful Bois des Moutiers or walk by the breathtaking Valleuse de Vasterival, a valley between the high cliffs that leads to the sea.

The famous white cliffs of Étretat are just under an hour away, via the historic town of Fécamp (30km), or continue on to Le Havre (75km), now a UNESCO World Heritage site due to Auguste Perret’s post-war architecture. In the other direction, Dieppe (40km) has great maritime traditions; make sure you try the fish stew or local scallops that the town is so famous for. The marina is a particularly pleasant place to soak up the vibrant ambience.

A little further, the well-known seaside towns of Honfleur (73km) and
Deauville (98km) are over an hour away or visit the historic and beautiful city of Rouen (66km) on the River Seine.

Continuing south-east of Rouen, the mesmerising gardens of Monet’s Giverny (140km) can be reached in around two hours, loved by tourists from across the world.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Since the end of the XXth century.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Purity of the XVII century construction built with soft pink bricks called “Briques de Saint Jean” and flints laid in cross-sections. Also the 2 pavilions very tastefully added in the XIX century by the Baron de Sancy, as well as 3 towers on the backside to create the romantic castle that we see today.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
In 1940 the property was confiscated by the Germans and became the Kommandantur (commandant’s office) for the region. During autumn 1944, the allied liberated the property. It then became the American headquarter.

A camp was created on its land at the end of 1944 for the transit of Equipment and reinforcement from Le Havre Harbour to the front line. In 1945 it could accommodate 100 000 people in tents located around an ex-German airstrip. Then, it became a transit camp for the ex-war prisoners and army going back to the USA. At its peak, 5000 people were leaving each day for the USA by plane or ship (through Le Havre) for a total of 89000 people. 3000 Germans war prisoners were doing the cooking and cleaning.


At the end of the war on the European front, it became a transit camp for troops being redeployed in the Pacific. In the summer 1945, 343733 men went through the camp. Now there is still some remains of the air stripe (use as a small aerodrome for private aeroplanes), and the camp is now back to its original purpose of providing wheat, mustard seeds and flax fields.

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really…

Must do?
Have a sun set beer at Eric’s bar at Veulettes sur mer

Must eat?
Scallops, fish stew (marmite Dieppoise)

Must see?
Visit Varengeville gardens (among others) and the Etretat’s cliffs

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
This area can be windy at times!

Reviews

  • We had a fabulous stay at Chateau Trois Tours!

    Posted by Nancy on 02/12/2019

    We had heard that it is considered to be one of the most beautiful Château in all of Normandy and after our stay I think we would have to agree that in addition to being beautiful, it is also a warm, comfortable and charming property. For us, the highlights were the interesting history of the property, the exceptional decor, well situated near the coast, beautiful gardens and the swimming pools! Our daily swim in the 75’ foot lap pool was the perfect follow-up after hiking the coast line. As we also enjoy cooking we found the gourmet kitchen fabulous to cook in and we liked the option of 3 different dinning areas to chose from. A beautifully appointed, cozy and comfortable home that is well situated in Normandy. The perfect choice for our family gathering. Highly recommended!

  • Our stay was perfect!

    Posted by Family P. on 09/01/2019

    Marie is the greatest host you can imagine and her chateau is incredible. Everything was perfect! The cook, the pool, the garden, the entire chateau is very beautiful and we enjoyed the stay very much!
