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?

She said there is no negative feed back. They loved the entire experience!

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.

Mikael Baaz and friends

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!

Spectacular Chateau in Normandy

  • 5 of 5

Fifteen friends shared this magnificent home while attending the World Equestrian Games in Caen. My commitment is to return to fully enjoy this Chateau without the distraction of dressage.

The photos and information provided are all very accurate. Arnaud the owner was very available and helpful to deal with during the booking and provided excellent information regarding the locale and guides (for a DDay tour).

The residence itself is jaw-dropping. Once the front gates open you immediately realise that you've made an excellent choice. The housekeeper Francoise was a smiling face there to welcome you.

There are ample areas for entertaining, both inside and out and a spectacular dining room. All the bedrooms are ensuited and very comfortable. Several are imposing to say the least. A couple of the bedrooms are relatively small (relative to the size of the chateau rather than the size of a typical European hotel room), but the communal areas are so numerous that it was very easy to find a quiet place to relax. The pool was well heated and the bikes were well used for morning rides to the local village. The grounds were exceptional - a twilight wander over the grass or through the trees with a glass in hand was a fantastic way to end the day.

The kitchen was well equipped; however thankfully we didn't really need to avail ourselves of this because of the wonderful Gwenaelle, the cook. After the week we were working on ways of taking Gwenaelle with us! After a day touring or at the dressage, to arrive 'home' at 7pm and have Gwenaelle preparing a wonderful repast in the kitchen was for many of us a highlight. Excellent food that we were more than happy to consume every night.

I will certainly be returning to Servigny, probably next time with my extended family. Whilst this fabulous chateau is full of history and antiques, it is so very livable and felt very much like a home for all of us.

For someone who travels frequently and widely, this was on of the best week's holiday I've had. And largely made that way because of the Chateau and it's staff.

Two weeks in July at Chateau de Servingy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks at the Chateau du Serivgny, with invited friends and family. It was a splendid time. The house itself, while large, is not overwhelming, but is cozy, charming and comfortable. The 4 reception rooms and well maintained, spacious grounds provided everyone of us with areas to congregate and also be to be private. Everyone has asked us the central question posed to those who rented a country house in France: how were the bathrooms? Here, they were excellent, newly tiled with first rate fittings and strong water pressure; each was en suite with the 8/9 bedrooms. The kitchen was also well equipped with an Aga type oven/stove.

One of the joys of northern France is the endless summer daylights; the sun set in July about 10:45 p.m. Our guests and family would go to play tennis or swim at 9 p.m. and we would sit down to dinner at 12 a.m, being unwilling to shorten the glorious days. Also, there were no mosquitoes and windows could be open at night.

Needless to day, we have recommended rental of Servigy to our friends and acquaintances and will most probably return in 2016,
