Overview of Pavillon Normandie

What Oliver loves…

  • Use the tennis court or go jogging in the 6 hectare park to stay fit!
  • The beautiful pond is a great place to entertain kids.
  • This chateau was the home of Alexis de Tocqueville, one of the great thinkers of the 19th century.

What you should know…

  • The nearest international airport is a couple of hours away.
  • Finding the chateau can be tricky! Make sure to add it into your GPS.

Experience history at the superb Pavillon Normandie, a luxury chateau in Normandy at the heart of the Cotentin peninsula. The peaceful English-style park includes fortifications that were part of the Second World War, and you’re a short drive from beaches where you can learn about the past and enjoy sand and waves. The elegant amenities include maid service, a lift that makes it easy to access all four floors and a home cinema room.

The castle has been beautifully renovated to feature the home’s original charms but add state-of-the-art elements. The 5 double bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms, and the period-style furnishings and design include an 18th century tapestry, beamed ceilings and four-poster beds in some rooms. You’ll love the 16th century fireplace in the sitting room.

Make a day trip driving to the historic landing beaches, all nearby. Spend some time in Barfleur (5 km), recognized as one of the most beautiful villages in France, and dine on local oysters in Saint-Vaast-La-Hougue (13 km), which has a lovely harbour and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This chateau is 10 km from the Maupertus airport, or you can take the train to Cherbourg (25 km) or Valognes (30 km).

 

Good news! This property is available as a Vill’otel
Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What’s included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

Interior & Grounds

Pavillon Normandie Interior
The Pavillon is comprised of 5 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The Pavillon Normandie opens into the entrance hall which leads to the salon and lift with access to the 3 floors.

On the ground floor there is a dining room area for 12 people, kitchen and a fireplace area. It is an ideal space to relax in front of a magnificent 16th century "cheminée" or enjoy a book in one of the secluded corners.

On the first floor, you will find the Barnett Room with 18th century Soho tapestry. Along with the charming octagonal Pink Room with en-suite bathroom. The first room is fitted with a bathtub and the second one with a shower.

On the second floor guests can stay in the Bazoches room which overlooks the pond and has a private shower. The Ming room offers a stunning four poster bed and bathroom with bathtub.

The Tocqueville suite is located on the last floor, with a four poster bed and beamed ceiling. The room has a private bathroom with a tub. On the same floor guest can be entertained in the home cinema room.

Map, Location & Local Information

Pavillon Normandie is located on the Cotentin peninsula in the West end of Normandy. It is 20 km/12 miles East of the port of Cherbourg.

The nearest train stations are either Cherbourg or Valognes. The train trip from Paris to Valognes takes about 3 hours, and the closest airport is Maupertus  which is around 10 km/6 miles from Tocqueville and 10 km from Cherbourg.

If you were to wander through the park of the Pavillon Normandie, you may be surprised to fall upon a pair of German blockhouses: in fact, they are part of what, at one time, was known as The Atlantic Wall. Indeed, Pavillon Normandie is also located on that part of the Atlantic coast that was heavily fortified and at the very end of the strategic right flank of the Normandy invasion by American, British and Canadian Allied forces that took place on 6 June 1944: D-Day. In the pre-dawn morning of that fateful day, this entire area behind the beaches of the Cotentin Peninsula was blanketed by troops of the 82nd and the 101st US Airborne Division in order to surprise their enemies and cut off the beachheads from reinforcements. Later, at dawn that same morning, forces of the US 4th Infantry Division (the “Iron Horse Division”), under the personal command of Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr., stormed ashore at Utah Beach and began the liberation of Europe.

At Pavillon Normandie you are near the heart of this right wing of the invasion: Utah Beach and Saint-Mère-Eglise are a mere 36 km (22 miles) away. The town of Carentan, scene of bitter fighting, is 54 km (33 miles) away as well.

Moving further east, you will encounter the rest of the key sites where the critical events of that fateful day took place: Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and its moving American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, the Invasion Museum at Saint Lo, the British and Canadian beachheads of Gold, Juno and Sword, the Mulberry Harbor at Arromanches, Pegasus Bridge, and the dramatic Memorial of Caen, as well as many other interesting historic museums and monuments along the way.

While sojourning in the area, within a short drive from Pavillon Normandie you will  have the possibility to discover all of these important parts of the history of the Second World War (partial list below).

- Utah Beach 36 km (22 miles)
- Saint-Mère-Eglise 36 km (22 miles)
- Carentan 54 km (33 miles)
- Pointe du Hoc, 79 km (49 miles)
- Omaha Beach 89 km (55 miles)
- Ouistreham 140 km (87 miles)
- Pegasus Bridge 136 km (84 miles)
- Arromanches 106 km (65 miles)
- Memorial Museum in Caen 126 km (78 miles)

For those who are particularly interested in French history, there are many other historic sites in the near vicinity. For example, you can visit the nearby town of Bayeux, which features a crown masterpiece of French Medieval history: the Tapestry of Bayeux, which pictures the conquest of England by William the Conqueror and was crafted by Queen Mathilda, his wife. The spectacular site of Mont-Saint-Michel and the British Channel Islands are close at hand and make excellent day-trips. There are also a multitude of smaller local, but equally interesting, sites to visit nearby in this historic region of France.

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!
