Château de Tourgéville
from £181 /night help
Chateau | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Live the chateau dream! This 7 bedroomed château nestles in 6 acres of beautiful grounds. A lush green valley surrounds the château and just over a hill lies the sea, with mile after mile of beautiful sandy beaches.
The château has two local resort towns a short drive away: chic, bustling Deauville and the characterful fishing port town of Trouville which can cater to your every need: be it restaurants, fashion boutiques, casinos or the more active pursuits of golf, go-karting, or sailing. Back at the château in the evening you can sip an aperitif, dine, sit back and savour the holiday with your friends, not even having to stray far from this peaceful haven. This charming château is really the perfect, spacious environment in which to enjoy your group holiday.
Furnishing a holiday château calls for a balance. Château de Tourgéville has been designed to provide an elegant, but comfortable, holiday home for our guests. We have enjoyed blending Normandy tradition with discreet modern home comforts like a modern kitchen, with top of the range equipment, and luxurious modern bathrooms.

The Basse-Normandie region
The name Normandy comes from the "Northmen", or Vikings, who invaded and gradually colonised the area in the 10th century. Invaders or not, they adopted the Gallic language and local customs, also adding their own. The Norman coast has seen many visitors over the years and they have brought the rich variance the region shows, along with a natural acceptance of others and wonderful hospitality. Normandy is just one of those places you could visit for a life time.
The first French cookbook came from a Norman chef, Guillaume Tirel, a favourite of kings. They knew he had the Normandy advantage that can be seen in everyday dishes, such as moules à la normande, mussels tenderised with apples and cream, or the fresh food available at many local markets. In Suisse Normande, you can see the the sun rise amidst deep, wooded gorges, then drive not too far to walk on sandy beaches, or watch a fleet of colourful fishing boats. There are cities such as Rouen, which have been international seats of power for a thousand years and tiny villages, unchanged throughout that time.
If you are going to Rouen, try the flea market on a Sunday. Many of the city's fine museums open over the weekend, not least the Museum of Fine Arts, with a staggering collection of faience and porcelain. There is also much to bring reflection on the D-Day Landings, the Invasion Museum at Arromanche, the Airborn Museum at Benouville and the Battle of Normandy Museum in Bayeux. This city holds the famous tapestry of course and a visit combines well with a stop at the historic Chateau de Creully, the ballooning museum, in the wonderful Chateau de Balleroy, or the historic Abbey at Mont St Michel. Equally, if you are fortunate to be at Bayeux in July, their mediaeval festival is more than worth the trip.
The history of Normandy is celebrated throughout the region, although there are many contemporary events, from grand theatre to casual poetry in a local cafe. The region is equally proud of fine modern architecture and facilities such as Futuroscope at Poitiers, show their willingness to embrace the new. To us, this is the spirit of Normandy. A wish to take the best from all ages and cultures, to cherish this and those who choose to share their wonderful life. Should you have any questions about facilities in the region, our local area guide and resources page offer further information, or you could learn more about la Côte Fleurie.
The local area is often called la Côte Fleurie, a reflection of the wonderful flora, added to by many towns and villages. The wider area has been known as Calvados since the French revolution, a name originally used for the local "Eau de vie de cidre". For us, this was the natural part of France to own a Château, warm people, a good climate and such variety.
Explore local towns and resorts
So many to mention, with chic Deauville and lively Trouville nearby. Our château sits between them, just inland from the soft, golden beaches. Both Deauville and Trouville are well recognised for these but there is more, from children's entertainment to fine restaurants, casinos, film festivals, wonderful shopping. Yet we often spend quiet moments, a drink, or meal at La Brasserie La Digue, on Tourgéville La Plage. Watching a wonderful sunset, children running free on the sands, or sitting with their parents, as small French children do.
Then there is Benerville, where you can go to watch strings of fine racehorses exercise on the sand. Honfleur, a port that serves the sea and the river. A centre for lovers of small boats but also the birthplace of Impressionism and home to the Museum of Culture. Make sure you drive up the Côte de Grâce, then on to Mont Joli, for breathtaking views of the Normandy coast. Beuvron-en-Auge is worthy of a visit, with a central square that is actually oval and full of exceptional, multi-coloured, timbered houses.
Caen is the capital of the region, central to the Normandy Landings and known for the Memorial Museum, along with excellent markets for Normandy produce and William the Conqueror's impressive chateau, a town within itself. Caen was heavily bombed but has been reborn, combining the old and the new, Romanesque architecture mixed unobtrusively with modern design.
The area reflects this ability to merge differing aspects in an unspoilt way, you can go from effervescent beaches to the quiet Norman countryside in minutes. Visiting the region recharges our spirits and we hope the same will happen for you. More information is available through our resources page, including a complete list of local tourist offices, or take a look at our own Normandy guide and information on la Côte Fleurie.

"A fantastic Chateau in a marvellous location"
Firstly I would like to say how helpful and knowledgeable the owners of the Chateau were as it was a large family group and took alittle bit of organising for dates etc. Thank you Robert and Nesta.
The holiday was booked for my Brothers 50th Birthday who came over from Australia with his wife two children and Mother in Law, myself and wife and two grown up children, sister and brother in law and Mother. (all from England) It was the correct choice, I have had had many compliments for arranging the break, which was of course a pleasure
We had excellent directions to the property (approx 3 hours from Calais on the toll roads the traffic was certainly a lot lot less than the UK, If possible go via the new bridge near Le Havre a terrific feat of engineering) and were met by a local frenchman Pierre who had a charming manner and despite a few minor language difficulties we settled in straightaway, we were fully informed how things worked and more practical information was enthusiastically provided. Pierre also popped back a few times during our stay to make sure everything was ok, he also comes and checks things over at the end of the holiday and waves you off when you leave, he is a real asset for the owners.
The chateau itself was exactly as described and probably didn't do it justice, we all really felt like we were celebrities staying in such a grand building.
Some of the bedrooms are vast and the living area is lovely just sitting and relaxing in the evening, the attention to detail and quality of the furniture has shown that it is as much a house as a holiday let.
Please visit the website provided by the owners, the amount of information at your fingertips is staggering. Also the property has a huge collection of brochures and local times and information for sightseeing.
The surrounding area was a real treasure, having visited Cabourg many years ago we had forgotten how much the area had to offer, we had many lovely days out and there were sufficient things to do all within a ten minute drive, the local countryside was beautiful, and the grounds within the privately gated Chateau were amazing, the family spent a large chunk of our visit playing ball games on the vast lawned area.
The highlights of the local area were probably the markets which were very french, we liked both Trouville and Deauville, both easily reachable by car, also the drive to Pegasus bridge and the tapestry at Bayeau and the American cemetery at Omaha beach which is well worth the drive, If possible take the country roads back you may end up a little lost but you will find some amazing little villages en route.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone and we will be back one day in the future, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Thank you again we hope to visit again some time soon.

"A Magical Chateau perfect for Large Family or Group !"
I cannot say enough wonderful things about my family's experience with Chateau Tourgeville. It was truly a magical experience and one my family will cherish for a lifetime. We were a group of eight people of varied ages (8-75) including teenagers and everyone loved the Chateau as well as the region at large. We spent much of our time in Deauville at the American Film Festival and ventured to the D-Day Beaches, Honfleur, and Mont St. Michel. Pierre was most helpful especially on the day we arrived and helped to navigate our abundant supply of luggage and people from the train station to the Chateau. Do note Pierre does not speak English but my high school French came in handy....though one can get by fine without. Robert and Nesta Hollis were a delight and always responsive to my questions; this was done primarily via email. All in all, I highly recommend.

"Wow!! Fantastic Chateau, Superb Location. Wonderful place for a family holiday."
Just returned from a fantastic week staying at The Chateau Tourgeville in Normandy. Such an amazing chateau. Beautiful and so cosy, plenty of room for a large family or group of friends and the location is superb. Short drive to some beautiful beaches and great days out.
Will certainly return.

"The perfect family getaway in Normandy"
Chateau de Tourgeville was such a delightful location for our family holiday. Our matriarch was celebrating her 70th birthday and we needed a central location for our geographically spread family (Australia, UK, USA) to come together for the celebration. The well appointed kitchen allowed us to cook meals for the several young children in our entourage and we spent every night in front of the open fire once the kids were asleep, catching up over many glasses of wine. It was a wonderful location close to the local shops and any amenities we required. We would most certainly recommend to anyone travelling with a large group. An unforgettable vacation!
