Our stay at the Chateau was a fairytale backdrop to a simply wonderful and unforgettable family holiday! It perfectly allowed for the discovery of Bayeaux, although it was much dreamier to stay in -except for the daily run to the Boulanger 5 mins away. The house, garden and formal salons were so exquisite that at times we had to pinch ourselves to assure ourselves it was real -because it seemed to be like visiting those stately homes or museums that usually have a rope against a doorway allowing you only to peer in! At every turn of the Chateau and in every corner there was a delight of aesthetic beauty to discover -a true epicurean feast for the eyes, but it all was grounded with a warmth and liveability which was made possible by the excessively charming host and his excessively lovely wife. They took great care in settling us in and giving us some insider tips, all of which were brilliant, like going to the local auction (amazing) . Like other large formal homes we have stayed in the UK there were for us the usual charming eccentricities, which is very standard in a residence on this scale, like the odd bathroom that is awaiting updating. We would recommend it entirely, especially those with a sensitive spot for beauty, historic patina and a dislike of vulgar and overdone hotels with too much chrome. Our visit was entirely made by how much fun we had in this home. On a practical level, there was hardly any need for champagne because it was so ecstatically beautiful, the kitchen was modern and had every convenience to cook a large roast dinner easily. Our hosts also responded instantly to any queries we had. In conclusion, we found the Chateau lifestyle very seductive so our family fully plan on a return visit as soon as possible. Thank you to our Hosts!
