C16th Normandy Chateau Estate



Updated: 26-Oct-2016
Large Chateau in France for rent - perfect for groups

This beautiful chateau is situated in a green valley within walking distance of an ancient village. A long drive takes you up to the charming, fully restored manor house that can sleep up to 30 guests. The chateau sits amongst beautiful gardens with plenty of garden furniture and a purpose built BBQ area. The tranquil setting of the chateau includes a small stream running through the grounds, two fishing ponds and a wood to explore.

The property is ideally suited to large groups for special occasions. Breakfast is optional by reservation and can be served outside on the patio, surrounded by flowers, or inside by candlelight in the medieval dining room. Please note that full property descriptions, photographs, availability & prices are kept up to date on my website which you can visit by clicking on my personal website link below.

The chateau has been converted in to several self-catering apartments and extra bedrooms all within the main building. This makes it ideal for a number of families holidaying together who wish to maintain a level of privacy. All the rooms have central heating apart from the top floor apartment, which has one room with electric heating.

On the ground floor the medieval dining room with huge fireplace and many candles can seat 30. The salon bedroom is a lovely well-proportioned double room with luxury en-suite bathroom. The sunny garden room that adjoins has 2 single beds, a small double and private access to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a well-proportioned classical bedroom suite with oak parquet floor, panelled walls, rose marble fireplace, double bed and en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with washing machine, dish washer, microwave, oven, hob, fridge, freezer and cooking facilities for the group.

On the first floor the stylishly furnished apartment in the left wing is accessed via the tower. The living room has original beams, a log fire and comfortable chairs and sofa. There is also a large kitchen, a triple bedroom, a double bedroom and a bathroom. The next apartment on this floor has a living room with double bed, a corner kitchen, an additional triple bedroom and a bathroom. The third apartment on this floor has a kitchen, a spacious living room, a double bedroom and a bathroom. The last bedroom on this floor is a very comfortable suite room with beautiful antique furniture, an extra large double bed, comfortable chairs and sofa, log fire, dinner table, TV with video and en-suite bathroom.

On the second floor are 2 adjoining triple bedrooms, with washbasin and WC. Also on this floor is a small bedroom with double bed, a large triple bedroom, a kitchenette and a bathroom. We have good quality beds and hot water is assured due to 2 main hot water boilers.

Outside the manor house is set within 5 hectares of gardens including a small wood. There are enclosed gardens for the children to play in including playgrounds, slide, swings, cabin and games such as badminton, cricket, boules, table tennis etc. They can also feed the donkeys and horses in the paddocks. Secure parking is available and the chateau sits 500 metres from the road (a small road) so there is no traffic noise. There is plenty of good quality garden furniture and a number of picnic tables. The BBQ area is situated under huge trees where you can enjoy evening parties in the park by candlelight. Further in the valley is a lake for carp fishing or trout. We also have a reception room for weddings or special anniversaries in original the 16th Century dovecote.

About the Manager

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Karine Francois! I want to say thank you for such a wonderful summer. Everyone said that I seemed like a different person when I got back and indeed I did feel 100% better than at the end of last term. I hope it doesn't wear off too quickly! Everything was just perfect, including the weather.

Perfect getaway, fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have just returned from a long weekend at 16th C Normandy Chateau. The Chateau owners provide an exclusive rental of the whole property. We opted to be fully self-catering, though Stephen and Kate (owners) do offer a catered service for groups renting the Chateau. Stephen and Kate took themselves away for a few days allowing us free reign over the property and we could not have asked for a better weekend. S & K arranged bike hire for the weekend as well as helping to manage local restaurant reservations and offered invaluable advice on the local area. The property itself is stunning and the views of the Pyrenees and the surrounding countryside are breath-taking. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished, all to a very high standard and the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. We were very fortunate with the weather and as such the swimming pool was in constant use throughout the weekend. Thanks Stephen and Kate for the great weekend...I know that twenty-two 5 star reviews sounds a bit too good to be true, but the combination of the property, the views and the hosts (...and with a bit of good fortune, the weather), means that this place takes some beating. Danny and Friends from Singapore and London. June 2012

The local village was once the feudal domain of the Bruces, ancestors of Scotland's famous King Robert the Bruce. Within a short distance of the chateau you will find ancient villages, chateaux, manors, churches and abbeys. Normandy has a rich history and is proud of its cultural heritage from the Romans, Celts, Vikings and Normans. The chateau is close to beautiful sandy beaches (20 minutes), a wide choice of restaurants (5 minutes), a children��s animal park (15 minutes), the traditional French markets with fresh local produce (10 minutes), La maison du biscuit hyper markets/shopping area (10 minutes), Mont St. Michel (1.5 hour), D-Day landing beaches (30 minutes), the Bayeux Tapestry (1 hour), Sea life Cherbourg (10 minutes). We can provide you with Calvados from the local farmer and wine tasting if it's of interest. There is a restaurant 2km away for simple, good value French food. We recommend the local markets on Monday morning in Bricquebec (7 km) and Friday morning in Valognes
