General Description

Whether you are seeking rest or adventure, a stay at this Château, in the heart of rural Normandy and close to some of its most beautiful sights, is sure to delight every generation.

This charming manor house, formerly a monastery over 200 years ago, has been lovingly restored by its welcoming owner after purchasing it a number of years ago. It was a huge project, using French artisans and maintaining the very highest of standards. Together, they have created a wonderful and relaxing holiday home which retains so much original character alongside great modern comforts.

The traditional living and dining areas create a restful ambience whilst the perfectly equipped kitchen is lovely for family breakfasts as well as cooking up a Norman feast. There is plenty of space upstairs with two double bedrooms with en suite shower rooms alongside two pretty twins that share a bright bathroom. Rooms across this home are filled with light from the manoir’s pretty windows looking out to the gardens and countryside beyond.

Help yourselves to apples from the orchard, make the most of the spacious gardens and on warm summer evenings it’s idyllic to sit outside with a glass of local calvados, chatting with family and friends into the night.

Pop down the road to the local village, just 2.5km away, for pastries, fresh bread, groceries and more or pick up further local delights at markets across nearby towns such as Condé-sur-Noireau and Clécy. Stay on for lunch in Clécy, an incredibly picturesque place often referred to as the capital of this ‘Suisse Normande’ region due to its natural beauty.

In Clécy, hire kayaks, paddle boards or pedalos along the beautiful River Orne, rock-climb or zip-wire by the Rochers des Parcs, paraglide across the mesmerising landscapes or play golf in glorious surroundings. Other idyllic towns to discover include medieval Domfront, Bagnoles-de-l'Orne with its belle-epoque architecture and Falaise, home to William the Conqueror’s castle.

There’s every opportunity to explore Normandy even further with Caen, Bayeux and the D-Day Landing beaches just over an hour by car, or the incredible Mont Saint-Michel within a ninety minute drive.

No matter what time of year you visit, this Château offers authenticity and comfort in a perfect position for visiting so much of this alluring part of Normandy.

Local Area / Activities

Château is a beautiful manor house set in the Calvados department of rural Normandy, close to the Orne valley and the charming town of Clécy, just over an hour drive from the ferry port at Caen-Ouistreham.

There is a little village around 2.5km away, perfect to stop off for morning croissants and there are other amenities here including a restaurant, café-bar, pharmacy and other shops. The nearest supermarket is just 2km away with many others within a 10-minute drive.

This region is filled with such natural beauty with hilly landscapes, rivers and woodland, ideal for both walking, hiking, horse-riding and cycling. Head to Clécy and hire canoes, kayaks, pedal boats and other water-based sports along the River Orne. There are some beautiful fishing spots whilst the more adventurous can try rock-climbing or zip-lining at Rochers des Parcs. The Domaine du Golf de Clécy will appeal to golf-lovers as well. This region is often referred to as the ‘Suisse Normande’ with its idyllic natural surroundings.

Even without all the outdoor adventures on offer, Clécy is an incredibly picturesque place to spend some time, indeed the town has inspired many local artists over the years. Wander along the town’s narrow lanes, stop off for a coffee in a café-bar or enjoy a leisurely lunch in an inviting restaurant.

Domfort is another pretty town with ruins of a medieval castle as well as an attractive old quarter with half-timbered houses and cobbled lanes. Bagnoles-de-l'Orne is also very beautiful with belle-epoque architecture, thermal waters and lakeside strolls.

Eager historians will be keen to visit Falaise, home to William the Conqueror's castle or head north to Caen, one of France’s oldest University cities. Bayeux is another fantastic day out with its UNESCO classified Bayeux Tapestry, magnificent medieval cathedral as well as excellent restaurants and interesting museums across the historic town.

If you would like to visit the D-Day Landing beaches then head further north towards Longues-sur-Mer, Omaha or Arromanches, each around 70-90 minutes by car. Alternatively, the breathtaking Mont Saint-Michel is 92km away.
