Guestbook comments from the owner

The children could not stop saying “WOW”! The villa was perfect in every way and well thought out. Very European but had every comfort that an American could want. Location was excellent and all services were performed perfectly. There was plenty to do and the weather was perfect. What more can you ask for?

This beautiful chateau exceeded our very high expectations. It's in a great location, close to much to do and see, and we were extremely well looked after by all.

A perfect stay at a historic Chateau

  • 5 of 5

The pictures, though beautiful, do not do this property justice. Both the house and the stay far exceeded our expectations. Though we rent vacation homes regularly, we never worked with this website. Everything worked out well. We received great communication through the website during booking, and then timely and to-the point responses from the owner of the Chateau, patiently answering my many questions. We were also grateful to receive a very detailed and well-prepared package with travel information, directions, and recommendations regarding sightseeing and good restaurants. A beautiful fruit basket was also waiting for us as a welcome gift from the owner (it didn't have a card, so there was some confusion initially, but we figured it out). The Chateau is perfectly located near picturesque town of Valognes (with a fabulous farmers' market, so close - less than a mile - that our girls rode their bikes to the market!). A lot of various sightseeing suggestions were provided at the house. The house is beautifully restored and maintained, with amazing history well documented and preserved. We were grateful to be shown the historic room where the Treaty was signed, with photos and documents. The park surrounding the Chateau is huge, very well taken care of, and a great place to ride bicycles (many were provided, in perfect working order). There is also a giant room with table tennis and a well-maintained outdoor tennis court and a beautiful heated outdoor pool. Though not included with the rental, we have asked for breakfasts and dinners, and they were provided and served (don't miss an opportunity to have a dinner or two at the Chateau), we also went to the restaurants the owners recommended, all spot-on. The closest one was our favorite (3 minute walk, very accommodating and great food!). We bought a lot of fresh food at the market, so we also cooked at home some nights. The kitchen is well equipped, there is everything one might need. We also used the washer and drier, all working perfectly. More on housekeeping: the house provides the biggest, plushest and highest quality towels I have seen in a while. Keys, maps, all necessities were provided. We enjoyed the library, the music room, and the fact that one of our guests, an art history professor, discovered that the Chateau was used as an inspiration for a much-discussed XIX century romantic novel. Highly recommend this property.

A truly unforgettable stay at a beautiful castle!

  • 5 of 5

We had the castle to ourselves which allowed us to invite friends and families for a shared experience. The castle itself is beautifully well maintained and comfortable. We were all in awe. We loved exploring the grounds and using the provided bicycles and playing tennis. Gwenaelle, the housekeeper, took great care with us and made us two amazing dinners. Well situated, we were able to easily visit the D-Day landing beaches, the American cemetery, Honfleur and tapestry of Bayeux. And of course the castle's treaty room tied the whole WWII experience together. We wished we had more time! Hope to return one day to explore the region more!

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Organised a surprise trip for some friends. When we arrived at Servigny they were speechless. This is not the usual accomodation, it's exceptional! We had a wonderful time in Normandy, made a lot of excurisons. The only thing we regret was that we could not spend more time in and at our castle. This property is highly recommended if You want to spoil Your family or friends with an extraordinary vacation.

A big thanks to Mr. Pontac, his family and all the staff who took care of us during our stay.

Awesome stay at Chateau de Servigny

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our week at Chateau de Servigny. We were 16 persons ranging in age from 7 -70. Everyone had an awesome time. The property is absolutely magical with the English park, stone play house, chapel, tennis courts, and swimming pool. The children loved the majestic bronze stag that stood guard over the spacious side lawn. Our teenaged boys loved learning about the history of the house and the role it played in the signing of a treaty at the end of WW II. Visiting the actual room of the signing and seeing the exact desk where it was signed were highlights. The chateau is very comfortable and well appointed. We loved sitting outside for an aperitif before dinner and often times remaining outside for our dinner shared on the spacious stone garden dining table. We played charades in the main salon and enjoyed a dance party in the upstairs salon. We can't imagine a better place to have celebrated the 70th birthdays of Peter and Grace Gorman with the entire family gathered together.

Chateau de Servigny during Christmas 2014

  • 5 of 5

The chateau is a great place to gather family or friends for holidays or events.

Our Norwegian-French family of three generations, stayed for 7 nights in Chateau de Servigny, during Christmas, from 21. – 28. dec. 2014.

Fifteen persons, eight adults and seven children (from 3-17), had a «once-of-a-life-time»-experience here, and we will remember this forever.

The 8 bedrooms - each different from the other – all included toilet and bath, and apart from some of the beds being a bit too short for long Norwegians, they were all very nicely furnished and convenient.

The castle offered multiple opportunities for all ages; piano, chess, TV, DVD’s, ping-pong, baby-foot, biking (for both children and adults) and tennis - or just a run or walk in the surrounding park. The small castle/play house in the park amazed the smaller kids. We would love to come back during summer time to try the swimming pool too!

The family de Pontac has created a fantastic place to gather people for the extraordinary happenings, and with good taste in all details (colors, tapestry, furniture, curtains) and knowledge they have managed to create an authentic and yet practical place to stay. The kitchen was quite well equipped, but as we wanted to prepare all the meal ourselves (having a Chef in the family), extra casseroles etc. were needed. In the fantastic dining room beside the kitchen, we enjoyed our meals all gathered around the table.

On Christmas Eve, we even used the small chapel in the park behind the chateau. This was a magical moment with candles, singing and some of the children playing the flute.

The only thing we really missed, especially during this cold season, was the ability to use the fireplaces around in the house. We believe it would be a good idea to make this possible, especially in the dining room.

Thank you for a memorable and magic Christmas holiday for our family!
