Historical and peace-filled vacation

  • 5 of 5

Chateau Tocqueville was enchanting. Welcoming, like being at home in this beautiful place. Danielle,, the housemanager, is a true historian, and supplied us with an oral timelined history of Tocqueville, while giving us a tour of the quarters, especially the library of Alexis. Corrine, the housekeeper and chef, made us lovely complete breakfasts and a very Normand meal the first night we arrived, in front of the roaring fire. Bedrooms and all of our part of the chateau were just as described in the VRBO literature. The Count and Countesse, and three of their children were at the Chateau for the weekend and spent some time with us before returning to Paris. Perfect!!!

The entire experience for our group was excellent

  • 5 of 5

Besides the beautiful facility & location, the staff & owner were extremely pleasant, efficient & accommodating.

If we ever have the opportunity to return to France - Alexis de Tocqueville will be high on our list of places to stay.

Thank you, Ellie

We spent the prior week in Paris where we had a great time. We never expected to top our Paris experience. Our arrival to the chateau transported us to a magical place. The pavilion was perfectly kept,decorated with period items and fully updated with modern conveniences.The property manager,Danielle ,was informative, gracious,and accommodating. the chateau is in close proximity to the landing beaches of the 2nd WW and Mont st. Michelle.

The nearby towns are very graphic and we intend to return to the chateau to see them in their spring and or summer colors.

We miss it already.
