Further details indoors

The garden floor comprises of a large modern kitchen and scullery, and a huge family room with direct access to the garden for the summer, an enormous fireplace to sit round for the winter, and a dining table which can easily seat 10-12 people. The formal rooms are on the ground floor, including a large salon, a smaller salon, and the formal dining room that seats 16. At the back there is a large terrace overlooking the formal French garden and the fountains. On the terrace, there is a table which can seat 12 for meals.

On the first floor there is one suite (double bedroom with a connected salon) and two double bedrooms, all with their own en-suite bathroom. On the second floor there are four double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms and three separate bathrooms.

Two pavilions mark the extremities of the French formal garden. One of them is a fully restored chapel. In addition, there is the old stable block which is now a pool house, with two changing/shower rooms, a large modern kitchen, and a function room with a gallery which can seat 26 people for dinner. There are three other buildings located on the grounds, including the caretaker's house, which are not available for guests.

The chateau is set in about 50 hectares of grounds. About seven hectares is used for the formal gardens, which include the formal French garden (with 36 topiary yew trees and a huge fountain), the walled Italian garden, the orchard and the avenue leading up to the chateau. There is small house in the garden where children can play, and a swimming pool and pool house for showers and changing rooms. There is ample parking space outside.

Further details outdoors

The outside of the Domaine du Pont has been untouched since it was originally built in the 16th century and enlarged in around 1720. The interior though is fully modernised. It has had a fascinating history, from being used as a safe house for aristocrats being smuggled out of France during the revolution, to being used by the Resistance during the Second World War. Since the war the Domaine du Pont has had a much more refined and tranquil existence, but has also played host to guests such as the Aga Khan and the Dalai Lama.

The Basse-Normandie region

Normandy is rich in culture: beaches, old cities, holiday resorts, casinos, and historic sites such as the Bayeux tapestry, the landing beaches, and Monet's garden - all within a reasonable drive of the chateau. There is a small market town about three minutes drive from the chateau. There are two supermarkets in the town, and a great market on Tuesdays. There are several good restaurants there too; however if you drive for a further 10 minutes there are two 1 star michelin restaurants to be found, and another one at Deauville.

Sport: The area is well provided in terms of sports facilities - for both participants and spectators. Normandy is well known as a centre for equine pursuits. There are many studs, including the Aga Khan's, and in the summer there are horse auctions as well as Horse Racing and Polo at Deauville. There is also Horse Riding available locally. If you prefer your feet on the ground, there are many golf courses within 30 minutes of the chateau (including Etratat situated on top of the cliffs overlooking the channel).

Sightseeing: Below are some recommended places to visit during your stay.

Deauville

Local produce: The food from Normandy is famous throughout the world especially the cheeses such as Camembert, Livarot, and Pont l'Eveque, and Calvados - the apple brandy. However, the French love of good food means that the basic ingredients must be of the highest quality. Seafood is excellent and certain local producers have a renown in the area for quality, taste, and price. One such example is Ferme de la Couterie on your left as you drive from the estate to Beuzeville. Here, butter and eggs can be bought direct from the farm as well as chicken, guinea fowl, etc according to season. Everything is organic/free-range.

Markets: The local markets are excellent and are a major source of food for the locals. The nearest market is in Beuzeville on Mondays; however there are also excellent ones in Honfleur on Saturday, Trouville on Sunday, and Pont Audemer on Monday.

Restaurants: There are numerous restaurants in nearby villages. Our favourites are:

- Auberge du Vieux Logis - Comteville (6km). One Michelin Star.

- L'Absinthe - Honfleur (14km). Very good restaurant adjacent to the old harbour.

- Chez Miocque - Deauville (20km). The place to see and to be seen!

- Les Vapeurs - Trouville (20km). Excellent food.

- Le Cremaillere - St Maclou (2km). Good food and excellent value.
