Beautiful country chateau on charming and well maintained grounds. The chateau is elegant, well appointed, clean, and comfortable (including modern bathrooms) . Most importantly though was the warm welcome we received from our kind and gracious hosts, Corrine, Danielle and the Tocqueville family. We look forward to another vacation in the luxurious Chateau de Tocqueville.
A special place whether you are touring or just relaxing. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast. The property is well appointed and the beds were so comfortable.
Expect that you are remote, but that’s the charm. Danielle made us feel at home and was a wealth of knowledge on the history and local.
Especially loved Honfleur, Mont St Michele and Rouen
A Dream Come True-A “Bucket List” Stay
This Chateau is off the charts everything anyone could dream off. To celebrate my 60th birthday me and 5 of my girlfriends spent eight glorious enchanting days here. I had to pinch myself a few times to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. The property is aprx. 13 acres and then spans several more acres that they rent out to farmers for cattle grazing. The house inside is right out of the “Pride and Prejudice” movie...I kept expecting Mr. Darcy to materialize! There are bikes (a vast array in many sizes) on the property for which we took advantage of biking to the ocean and the small village of Barfleur while stopping to pick blackberries on the way back. There is a also a tennis court on the property! The attendants Danielle and Corinne were extremely helpful and were so personable and fun. They would arrive in the morning to check on us and ask if we needed anything...fresh towels or our rooms cleaned. Any questions we had were happily answered which made our trip around the area even more enjoyable. We hired Corinne to Chef for us a couple of nights and I can’t tell you how good everything was. I took pictures so I could cook her dishes at home! The beautiful Countess Stephanie came one night to meet all of us. What a wonderful thoughtful thing to do and so meaningful. It was also exciting to learn about Alexis de Tocqueville who was best known for his works “Democracy in America and “The Old Regime” also “Revolution”. To think that we were actually staying in his house was truly amazing! This is a bucket list trip people! I’m planning on going back again for I so so miss it!!
We were delighted to host such a charming and respectful group. It was a real pleasure!

Historical and peace-filled vacation
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
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
