Travelled from Dorset as a group of 16 and arrived to be greeted by Eric who ran through everything we needed to know. The chateau was beyond our expectations and the rooms were all beautiful and clean with en-suites. The location and surrounding grounds are absolutely stunning and perfect for large groups and families with Utah beach close by. So many private areas in the garden to relax. We would have no hesitation recommending this beautiful place and hope to return in the very near future ourselves. Really cannot put in to words what a wonderful time we had and thank Eric for being a wonderful host.

Lovely property, thoughtfully renovated

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week as a family group of 25. Property is lovely and very well renovated. Main kitchen is the only negative as it is very small like you would find in a small flat, but despite that we managed ok. Totally child friendly and with nice grounds for the children to roam

With 22 other family members from Germany, England, Spain and The Netherlands we had the whole property to ourselves for 1 week. Did a lot of dining al fresco, looked for qoypu's in the pond, ate and drank a little too much and totally enjoyed all that this house has to offer.

Rooms all very well renovated; everything works, enough bathrooms so you don't have to wait, good kitchens....

The property is also very easy to reach. In the area you'll find all supermarkets you need, as well as good restaurants and the charming village of Valognes. The coast is nearby. Do go to Nez de Jobourg. Beautiful, and France sort of ends there.

Would I like to visit this property again? Yep!

Could not have been better ... perfect

  • 5 of 5

Property far exceeded expectations in location and quality. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable with a personal touch. Dining area, sitting area and the bar were pristine places to connect with old and new friends and make new memories. The grounds are large, beautiful and a joy to explore. Entire facility is child friendly as well!

Eric was immediately available to keep things running properly - extremely diligent and expedient.

It was truly a pleasure to be hosted in such a lovely place by such a wonderful host.

Thanks - all 23 of us felt the same way!

Beautiful property; great for large/small groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the Cherbourg Manor. The property is peaceful, quiet, and spacious. The gardens around the grounds are amazingly maintained. We had 17 people (4 families) and could have easily had space for 2-3 more families. It seems like it's even bigger than the property description. Eric was so helpful and kind. Not all homes are so welcoming to children, & we really appreciated that the kids were welcome to explore the vast grounds. Hints for staying at any cottage: bring your own bath & hand soap, trash bags, zip lock bags for storage, and paper towels. We loved having laundry facilities to use in both the house & cottage. There were plenty of pans & tupperware in the kitchen for cooking meals & storing leftovers. We enjoyed going into Valognes for the town market one morning. The grocery store is nearby (in town) and has plenty to supply your needs. Ask for GPS coordinates to easily find your way to the Manor on the winding country road. If you're wanting to visit the beaches of Normandy, this is a GREAT venue to choose!! We LOVED it here!!

Amazing Normandy Chateau Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the manor house for 12, with tons of extra room for others. We were amazingly impressed with the property and the home. Well and modernly updated while retaining it's historic chateau charm. Owner Eric is wonderful, friendly and very accommodating--his English is great and he's quick to respond to emails as well as be of help onsite. We highly recommend this beautiful 16th Cent. Chateau--make sure to look at all of the photos and video of property, they are a great representation of the property. Merci Eric!
