Chateau B&B near WW2 Normandy Landing beaches and St Lo

ID: 463
This historic chateau B&B near Bayeux and Saint Lo in Normandy is an absolute gem!

Stay at this 600 yr old chateau for a real medieval experience. We're talking fortified walls, a moat and a fascinating history which your warm and welcoming British hosts will share with you if you're interested.

The hospitality here is generous and genuine and your hosts clearly enjoy welcoming people into their very special home. You'll be treated as one of the family and welcomed with tea and cake in front of the log fire.

The setting here is quiet and rural. The chateau is surrounded by 27 acres of wonderfully peaceful parkland, meadows and orchards. You may see beautiful black swans and ducks on the moat and ducks and also the flock of rare breed Hebridean sheep in the grounds.

It is the perfect place to forget the stresses and strains of normal daily life. Leisure facilities include giant chess, boules, croquet, and 800m of category 3 river frontage.

The chateau is furnished in a manner befitting a 600 year old fortification with many interesting antiques and other items collected over the years.

Make sure you stay long enough to take one of Joe's tours of the WW2 Landing Beaches and other WW2 sights in the area. They are great value and a great eye-opener to the complex history of this corner of Normandy. Use the castle also as a base from which to visit Bayeux and even Mont St. Michel which are both within an easy drive.

There's WiFi at the chateau provides and plenty of secure parking space for your car.
