Location description from owner
The Haute-Normandie region
Le Treport and Mers-les-Bain are about 20 minutes drive away and well worth a visit for their fantastic restaurants, interesting architecture and antique shops.
The city of Eu, with its striking cathedral is well worth a visit and the cities of Dieppe and Abbeville are only 30 minutes drive away.
It’s also well worth making the 40 minute journey to the beautiful seaside town of St Valery-sur-somme with its huge array of pretty boats moored where the Somme meets the sea. The shops are lovely here, as is the seafood! For glorious sandy beaches, Le Crotoy is a little farther north.
If you feel like venturing further afield, Paris is only 2 hours away with Disneyland and Parc Asterix being favourites for the children.
Day trips can be made to the bird sanctuary at Marquenterre, Le Touquet with its infamous golfing, Monet’s garden at Giverny and the battlefields of the Somme are on the doorstep as well as the amazing chateaux of Eu and Rambures.

Grandcourt is a typical pretty French country village with a breathtaking church and just two shops – a grocers, and that all-important bakers where after a three minute walk you will be able to buy your freshly baked bread and croissants each morning for breakfast. The village also has its own very authentic bar in the village square. The locals are very friendly and it’s impossible to pass someone in the street without them saying a friendly “bonjour”. The village is right on the edge of the beautiful Forest of Eu with its amazing cycle paths and walks and less than 10 minutes drive through the forest brings you to the picturesque market town of Blangy-sur-Bresle with its lively Sunday morning market and eclectic collection of shops as well as a large supermarket. Just 15 minutes drive away is the sleepy coastal town of Criel-sur-Mer with its huge expanse of beach.

“50th Birthday Surprise”
Well what can we say about this chateau.........Book it!! We held a 50th birthday surprise for my wife at the chateau - it was perfect, it is a simply stunning property - kids will love roaming and hunting around the house and grounds. The pool was very well maintained as was everything from our initial booking until the day we left - a big huge thank you to Angela and Judith - both were so helpful and made our holiday one to remember. The locals are very friendly, they all knew we were a party and made us feel very welcome, trying to arrange a date next year to return - thank you everyone who made this a truly wonderful experience -
“Living like a lord.”
The house and grounds are lovely and take two days just to explore. Add in the fact it has a lovely pool and is all fenced including the grounds so kids can have a little freedom to play. You may even find a den we built in the woods. It's only a couple of hours drive from Calais but it does mean the weather is only a little warmer than the UK.
“Perfect location for family reunion”
We rented the East Wing and cottage for 17 members of our family, mostly travelling from the UK. The house(s), grounds and pool were truly lovely and everything clean and well-maintained. We found activities for all ages within reasonable driving distances, but even just chilling in the house, gardens and pool was great.
This was our third visit to the Chateau at Grandcourt, there were 16 of us this time so we rented the East wing and the Cottage for a long weekend. The surrounding countryside is lovely and ideal for short trips out to the coast or other areas of beauty. The Chateau is great, set in lovely grounds with a good pool and lovely BBQ facilities. We have found that there is everything there that we need and the welcome pack on arrival is a nice touch. I thought that the group might like to try somehwere else next year but it has been unanimous we will be returning for our fourth year running!
“Wonderful Easter Break”
What a great week! We travelled as a large group (17) so hired both wings of the main house, this provided more space than enough with beds to spare. Our party included 9 children of varying ages so separate adult and child dining was ideal given the two large dining areas. The grounds and stream provided plenty of entertainment for the children but the wonderful surrounding country side and places to visit made the week fly by. As party organiser my job was made simple by the owners clear and quick communication. While for some of the older children a lack of internet connection initially caused concern for some of us that is a blessing. So the big question would we go back? - BIG FAT YES!!
