“A wonderful week in Normandy” The Chateau de Servigny was everything the listing description promised. The location, facilities and overall layout of the chateau were exactly as I expected. The property was clean, the grounds were immaculate, and the chateau and its setting were utterly breathtaking. The different rooms throughout the chateau and their decor were amazing, offering a glimpse into the past. The kitchen was a warm and cozy gathering spot for our group's members in the morning, the dining room was spacious with the old fireplace providing a marvelous backdrop for the convivial suppers we enjoyed in the room, and the library with its entertainment center was a comfortable retreat at the end of a busy day spent sightseeing.
The biggest drawback at the chateau is its lack of handicap accessibility. The flights of stairs to the second and third floors are daunting enough for those who are hale and hearty. Anyone confined to a wheelchair would simply be out of luck, and that is a pity considering what the chateau has to offer overall.
The customer service provided by the staff at the chateau was very acceptable. The staff was pleasant and eager to accommodate our needs.The laundry facilities were especially welcome. The bathroom facilities were up-to-date and the beds were extremely comfortable. The only suggestion one might make is that the bath towels be changed once during the week.
I would highly recommend the Chateau de Servigny to any friends or relatives considering a vacation in Normandy in particular or Europe in general. The chateau is centrally located in a historic region and is a perfect hub for day-long sightseeing excursions. The proximity to the allied landing beaches is a particularly good selling point for anybody interested in the history of the Second World War.
All in all, our stay at the Chateau de Servigny could not have been more enjoyable. A return visit would certainly be worth considering.
