The chateau was ideal for our purposes-plenty of space for the grandchildren to run around & play & lots of room inside the house. They enjoyed the pool very much but we were glad we had taken wet suits for them as it was a bit on the chilly side! We enjoyed trips to Bayeux,Clecy & Thury-Harcourt was handy for shopping but staying here you have to be prepared to drive as Donnay itself is very rural.If you are a Francophile & want to relax & enjoy a slow pace of life it's lovely.

                                                                                                      This was one of the best accommodations I have stayed in, fully equipped with everything you need and all of a high standard, it was lovely sitting outside reading and relaxing, there is a large fridge to store everything you need and after making some lovely meals, it was nice to stick everything in the dishwasher and relax, the sky was also so clear at night you could see lots of stars some shooting, there were supermarkets nearby in Ger and Mortain, we visited the market in St Hilaire which was excellent, followed by the petit cascade ( the little waterfall) outside mortain which was very picteresque, also the medieval town of Domfront was very good and worth a visit as is Mont St Michel, but only if you don't mind lots of stairs. Granville was a nice town on the coast and L'Abbaye Bénédictine Notre-Dame in Lonlay l'Abbaye was a lovely picteresque abbey with a lot of history. Overall all we had a lovely stay, even when it rained, would definitely stay again
