About the property

Chateau Apartment in Culey Le Patry, Suisse Normande, Normandy - Ideal for Exploring the Landing Beaches and Bayeux

Chateau La Cour dates back to the 13th century and is the largest and oldest property in the area. The house has been painstakingly restored, retaining many of the original features, but without compromising on comfort. We are just 25km South of Caen and ideally situated for exploring the Normandy landing beaches, Bayeux, Deauville and Honfleur. It is an excellent base for outdoor activities, walking, golf, horseriding or visiting the many chateaux and gardens in the area. The Suisse Normande is an area of peaceful rolling hills and attractive wooded valleys, where cattle graze in apple orchards that have changed little over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a fantastic place! Beautiful and very relaxing. We stayed in the new apartment on the 2nd floor of the chateau which is one of the most sumptuous places I have stayed with all the mod cons but in true French style. Highly recommended."

"a little bit of paradise - thank you for a wonderful stay"

"a perfect week - a real home from home - wanted for nothing!"

Fabulous experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in the apartment at Chateau La Cour and what a treat it was! The apartment is large, extremely comfortable, beautifully decorated, and offers first-class amenities. The Chateau's location makes it an excellent base for visiting most of the major sites in Normandy. The beautiful gardens and countryside surrounding the Chateau provide all the rest you could want after a day out and about. And to top it off, Leslie and David are the perfect hosts - gracious, charming, and helpful. Their hosted dinners, which took place in their lovely dining room, were a real highlight of our stay. What a special way to enjoy fine cuisine and engaging company!

I have had a wonderful stay at Chateau Le Cour and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Soisse Normande. Lesley and David are the best hosts that I have had on my many years of travelling. They made me very welcome and are always available to help in any way.

a great treat

  • 5 of 5

This property was a lovely treat for us. It is spacious and immaculate with all the kitchen equipment you might need, and wonderful toiletries. Lesley and David are great hosts who made us most welcome and answered all our questions. They also cooked us a delicious dinner which we enjoyed one evening in their company. They grow their own fruit and vegetables which were an added attraction!

The apartment at Chateau La Cour is ideal if you are looking for peace and quiet, a rural location and great views (in addition to the above).
