This wonderful farmhouse sits within the grounds of a magnificent 17th century estate. It is set in lovely hedged gardens and makes the perfect base to explore the Bayeux Tapestry, Monet's Garden, and the landing beaches. It is only a 15-minute drive from Honfleur and 30km from Deauville.

The farmhouse, which has its own entrance and pretty valley views, is surrounded by orchards (for cider and calvados) and grazing land with cows. It has space for up to 10 guests across its five pretty bedrooms and four bath or shower rooms. You will also find an inviting living room as well as a characterful kitchen and dining room, perfect for preparing Normandy feasts to enjoy with your family or friends.

The farmhouse stands adjacent to the owner's neighbouring 9-bedroom château, which can be rented separately or both properties can be booked together for up to 28 guests (see Domaine Du Pont: Entire Estate) with a pathway and gate connecting the two. The whole estate has a fascinating history since it was originally built in the 16th century and enlarged in around 1720 - in more recent times the neighbouring château has played host to guests such as the Aga Khan and the Dalai Lama.

    The nearest port to the farmhouse is Le Havre (35km) and the nearest town is Beuzeville (5km). About three minutes drive from the farmhouse there is a small village which has a supermarket and a couple of good restaurants. If you want to try slightly further afield (just another 10 minutes!) you will find two one starred Michelin restaurants, and another one at Deauville (30km).

    Normandy has a huge amount to offer – and most of it is within a reasonable drive of the farmhouse. It has something for everyone from old cities, Monet's garden, the landing beaches and historic sites such as the Bayeux tapestry to beaches, holiday resorts and casinos.

    The area is well supplied in terms of sports facilities - for both participants and spectators. In particular, it is well known as a hub for equine pursuits - there are numerous studs, including the Aga Khan's, and in the summer there are horse auctions and Horse Racing and Polo at Deauville.  There is also Horse Riding available locally. There are many golf courses within 30 minutes of the farmhouse (including Etratat situated on top of the cliffs overlooking the channel).

    Other day trips include the Landing Beaches, the Bayeux Tapestry and Monet's Garden. Honfleur (17km) is a fishing and sailing port located in the Seine estuary about 15 minutes from the farmhouse. Deauville (30km) is great for smart shops, cafes and people watching. This cosmopolitan sea-side resort has a large and beautiful beach, a marina, and a casino.

    Normandy is rightly famous for its food - especially the cheeses such as Livarot Camembert, and Pont l'Eveque - and Calvados, the apple brandy. The French love of good food means that all ingredients also have to be of the highest quality.  Seafood is fantastic and local producers are famous in the area for quality, taste, and price. 

    Local markets are fantastic and are often the major source of food for the locals. The nearest market is in Beuzeville on Tuesday mornings. However, there are also excellent ones in Honfleur, Trouville and Pont Audemer. There are many restaurants in nearby villages.

    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!

    Owner Profile

    Property Owner
    Julian

    How long have you owned the property?
    12 years.

    What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
    The beauty of the building and the surrounding gardens. Very romantic!

    Are there any interesting stories in its history?
    The neighbouring chateau was occupied by the Gestapo for a while during the war. We still have the religious figures that they brought from Bavaria for the chapel. There is also a friendly ghost - a house maid.

    The Dalai Lama has stayed at the chateau on several occasions, as has the Aga Khan.

    What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?
    We had a group that wanted to have a hot air balloon trip that started from the grounds. We managed to arrange it!

    For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
    Really do?
    Visit Honfleur Market on Saturday
    Really eat? Fresh fish from the fish market in Trouville
    Really see? The casino and surrounding shops in Deauville

    Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
    Our caretakers are also excellent chefs - we prefer their cooking than most of the surrounding restaurants.

    • Very nice stay!

      Posted by Florence on 27/09/2019

      We loved the location, the layout, kitchen facilities were good; the beds were okay, prefer firmer, mattresses on higher beds. The caretaker was friendly and very helpful.

    • Amazing Stay!

      Posted by Joan on 07/09/2019

      Lovely position and beautifully appointed

    • Charming property

      Posted by Christian on 06/08/2018

      Fine cottage, charming.

    • Wow!

      Posted by Gaynor L on 30/08/2016

      What a splendid property with plenty of space and character. A superb view from every room. Not ideal for someone who finds stairs a challenge. A brilliant place for a big family celebration with the Farmhouse and pool area providing additional space. The house keepers cared for us well and made a real difference. Several hidden treasures too.

    • We all want to go back!

      Created on 24/08/2016

      Last autumn, after we had made our booking, the managers allowed us to visit the chateau so that we could understand the property and to help us work out where all our guests would go. This gave us a flavour of the special magic of this place which continued into our recent stay.
      All our guests, without exception, had a wonderful time, some found the beds so comfortable that they wanted to take them home! Our guests alternated between either using the pool or the other facilities at the chateau or using it as a base for visiting the surrounding area.
      To have the use of this wonderful chateau was great and made even more special by the care and attention of the owners, not forgetting the wonderful food they provided throughout our stay.

    • Top marks!

      Posted by Frank Hall on 01/09/2014

      We were a large party occupying both main house and the farmhouse.Lovely situation and buildings although the main house needed some maintenance but nothing serious .Garden and grounds were wonderful.Moraig and Mark were excellent,welcoming and helpful.We had Moraig and Mark cater for us and their cooking was really excellent.Both are fine chefs.The heating in the pool was an issue..The kitchen needs to be reorganised with bigger fridge space and better drainage/washing machines.. Would like to have better Wi Fi connection.Overall 9 out of 10..

    • We all had a wonderful week

      Posted by Bill on 17/04/2014

      We all had a wonderful week and the only negative reflection among our group was that our stay had to end. The quiet beauty and luxury of your Chateau and the helpful presence of your caretaker Graham and his wife Mandy all combined to make it a memorable experience. I want to personally thank you for putting up with the constant queries, and your patience in responding to them. We took your advice regarding food supplies, restaurants and all the other information you passed on was right on the mark. Again, on behalf of our circle of friends, thank you for providing such a rich and satisfying experience. Who knows, this could easily become an annual habit!
