"A beautiful chateau in Normandy"
Christian was very welcoming and helpful. The Chateau provided an excellent place for us and our 15 guests to celebrate a Birthday. We had an excellent and enjoyable week. Christian helped us organise… More
The Chateau is indeed from the 17th century, however we gutted it in 2013 and completely renovated it.
We put in a brand new kitchen, totally redid the dining room, hallway, TV room, put in a brand office space with 80 inch TV, all bathrooms have been completely redone, we put a new coat of paint in all bedrooms and put in a brand new parking lot. We invested tons of money into this property, this is not the Ritz, but it is as close as you can get in the Normandy countryside.
The statement "nothing is new" is just a complete misrepresentation of the facts.

Our ratings on airbnb, trip advisor and other sites speak for themselves. This is the 1st time in 3 years we had undesirable guests at the property but we understand this is the risk we take when we open our family estate to the public. We obviously have no surveillance cameras in the living room but painting lights. With a lot of imagination, they could be mistaken for cameras. We only authorize fires in three of the 20+ fireplaces on the property for safety reasons. The boiler indeed broke down but was fixed within the hour by our excellent plumber who interrupted his weekend.
Swimming pool; Great for children of all ages ; Car essential;
The ideal location for a relaxing rural getaway. Set in the idyllic Normandy countryside, the farmhouse can easily accommodate up to 9 guests at a time, staying in the four modernly furnished bedrooms, with private swimming pool, garden and tennis courts. …see more
