Perfect place for families

  • 5 of 5

After a busy week in Paris, we wanted to relax and see the D-Day sites around Normandy. The spacious cottage of this 18th century chateau was the perfect spot. Our children enjoyed running all over the grounds and playing on the swings and slide. We also had nightly Ping-Pong tournaments. None of the D-Day sites were more than 30 min from the chateau.

Ms. Helen was a gracious and helpful hostess. The chateau has been in her family for generations and she is anxious to share that history while taking you on a tour of the buildings. It is a quiet, beautiful setting where our family enjoyed time together. Highly recommended for families with small or multiple children.

Spacious accommodation idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three friends on our tour of the Normandy battlefields and other cultural attractions. The village itself is very small but has a friendly bakery that opens everyday except Wednesday. The nearest town Port-en-Bassin is a short drive away and has a small supermarket and restaurants bars etc. Our host was very welcoming and upon our arrival took us to the town and showed us the local facilities. The location is very quiet but close enough to Bayeax and the major shops and main road to be very convenient. The house is quite basic but clean and functional and has all we needed for our stay, the weather was great so we BBQ'd every evening and ate on a large table in the rear courtyard. The highlight for me was watching a sparrow hawk hunting for bats over the back garden at dusk. The pool is clean and great for a cool down after a long day out, the walled garden would be very suitable for families with children but you would need to supervise them in the pool. Our host gave us a guided tour of the main chateaux which was very interesting and very worthwhile. Overall an excellent stay and good value for money. Très bien merci Martin.

Wonderful stay at Chateau de Vaulaville

  • 5 of 5

Oh wow! What a beautiful & amazing place to stay! We traveled here with my family (husband, kids--14, 11, 6-- and myself) as well as uncle & cousin. We had plenty of room! The Chateau is very close to the DDay Beaches, Port-en-Bessin and Bayeux (15-20min drive). The history of the property is so fascinating and our hostess, Marie Helene, was so kind & helpful! She shared with us much about her family's history in the area, as well as touring us in her home. The Chateau itself is wonderful--an almost 300 year old "castle" (as my kids called it), but with a few modern conveniences. The kitchen & baths are updated, and the bedding is comfortable. There is nothing overly fancy about the inside, but everything works & you do feel like you are living in a piece of history. The kitchen is fine--we didn't cook meals here, but instead had baguettes & cheese & wine & there were ample plates, glasses & cutlery. My one suggestion would be to provide a few dish towels (bath towels are provided). The kids enjoyed visiting with the donkeys in the adjoining field, as well as the many farm kitties. It is so quiet here--someday I would love to come back just to enjoy the relaxing locale (too many great things to do, though--we explored the Normandie area a LOT!)

We took many day trips from this perfectly central location: Omaha, Utah Beaches, Bayeux, Caen, Mont St Michel, Saint Malo. We also explored the closest town of Port-en-Bessin, which has nice restaurants & shops as well as a lovely harbor. Thank you Marie Helene for sharing your home & your history with us. We will never forget our time here!

Spacious home for large family, great for children

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was in close proximity to all WW II sites, the house was well supplied with all we needed and Marie Helene was a great host. We enjoyed learning about the history of her family and their role during WW II. I would definitely recommend!

Tranquil country setting , spacious living area, interesting history, thoughtful host.

  • 5 of 5

A magical place, Marie Helen was extremely caring and thoughtful when my mom had an emergency hospital visit. Enchanting setting for children, near Village with everything you need. The apartment is perfect for extended families, There's a large garden for children to run around and be free .Hope to return someday . You will not be disappointed.

Idyllic Setting in Normandy - Historic Chateau located proximate to Paris and heritage sites

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to express what a special place this is. In planning a side trip from Paris to Normandy, I searched high and low for a location that would combine ease of access with the beauty of the French countryside. What I found was beyond my expectations - so much so that I booked the large house (can sleep 8 to 10 comfortably) for my family of three. The outbuilding is spacious, clean and very well-equipped (they truly thought of everything). While the house is gorgeously historic, the bathrooms are modern and the kitchen is up-to-date, which made for a very comfortable visit. The house has a beautiful library full of books (French, some English and beautiful coffee table books, many about Normandy), games and DVDs though to be honest, we never turned on the TV. The grounds are lovely and my son loved running around visiting the donkey, the cat and the horses on property. The house is proximate to Utah Beach and Omaha Beach, Caen and Bayeux. It is also reasonably close to Rouen and the lovely seaside towns of Honfleur, Trouville and Deauville. While there are no larger markets in the town, one can find everything in Bayeux which is a lovely town within a short driving distance. One of the highlights of the trip was meeting Marie-Helene and her husband, the proud custodians of this historic gem, who proved to be warm, caring and gracious hosts. They shared with us the property's proud history, as well as that of their family, which was very moving. We had such a special visit to Normandy and much of it had to do with the character of the house and its owners. We long to visit again.
