Description

Chateau de Court is an exquisite 18th Century country house, set in the midst of its own parklands, fields, and pastures in bucolic Normandy. The current owners have restored this grand monument of the Ancien Regime with 21st Century standards of comfort and convenience, without yielding any of the chateau’s original character and charm.

Here you will find the elegance of a grand French chateau combined with all of the comforts of modern living. Magnificent reception rooms are available to welcome friends and family, unique bedrooms each have their own luxurious ensuite bathroom and a fully-equipped kitchen makes entertaining a delight.

Country walks and bicycle rides in the fresh air, billards and ping-pong in the chateau, and badminton and boules on the lawn, are all pastimes which you can enjoy during your time at the chateau. Well-situated to explore the sites that make France one of the most beloved travel destinations, you will find yourself within a few hours reach of the plat pays of lesser-known Northern France; Omaha Beach, Deauville and Mont St-Michel to the West; Paris, Versailles, and Giverny to the East; and the chateaux of the Loire Valley to the South.

Set within the grounds of the chateau, the Orangerie, with its 77 m2 (828ft2), is suitable for large cocktail receptions and dinners. The chateau is available as a self-catered venue.

You and your guests will find the Chateau de Court a congenial place to work or play. Start your day with a walk through the chateau’s 20 hectares of park and woodlands (where you may surprise deer grazing, or admire the chateau’s herd of registered Limousin cattle). Breakfast in the sun of the "cour d’honneur" and, after a full day exploring the region’s rich heritage, return to a cheerful fire in the library, a cocktail in the cozy "fumoir", and host an intimate dinner in the informal dining room, or a grand dinner in the great dining hall. Follow that with a game of billiards, or gather around the piano in the grand salon.

You and your guests will enjoy the traditional amenities of a grand French chateau - with the added bonus of luxurious en-suite bathrooms and a modern kitchen. In short our chateau will be your home in one of the most charming and historically important regions of France. Only 160km from Paris, well-served by auto routes and train, the chateau is ideally suited to host you and your family and friends.

Area description

Courtomer
The local town is just 10mins walk from the chateau and has two boulangeries (one with a wood-fired brick oven), a wine cave (where you can also buy the local calvados and cider for which Normandy is famous), an excellent butcher and charcutier, a mercerie (where the town’s hospitable mayor presides over sewing supplies), a pharmacy, a convenience store, a bank and a bar.

On a Sunday, you’ll be able to buy locally-produced camembert and foie gras, fresh vegetables and locally-raised meat and poultry. You’ll also note the 19th Century church with its stained windows of the saints of France and ornately carved altars. On hallowed ground outside the church is the obligatory war monument to the France’s lost generation of 1914-1918; outside the mairie is artillery from the Battle of Normandy of 1945.

Sees
A 15-minute drive away is the charming cathedral town of Sees, one of the oldest diocese in France. The twin towers of its 13th-century gothic cathedral, lit from within at night, are a luminous beacon for miles around. Today, Sees is a bustling small town with lively Saturday market.

Bayeux
This lovely town combines the roots of Norman history with proximity to the D-Day beaches of World War II. The Bayeux Museum displays one of oldest and certainly most famous embroidered "tapestries" (it is actually a cloth, not a woven tapestry) in the world. The 11th-century tapestry depicts the Norman conquest of England in 1066 and is said to have been embroidered by William the Conqueror’s Anglo-Saxon queen, Mathilda. The soaring cathedral, dating from the same epoch, was built by William’s half-brother, Bishop Odo.

Normandy
Numerous D-day beaches, museums and memorial sights are located along the Normandy coast, about 100km to the north of the chateau. Not just for history enthusiasts, people also visit the seaside and coastal towns of Normandy for the sandy beaches and excellent seafood. You will find the best oysters in Courseulles!

Mont St Michel
Monastery and fortress, Mont Saint Michel rises from the sea just off the coast of Normandy: "like a fantastical manor, like a palace in a dream, eerily strange and beautiful" wrote Guy de Maupassant. You can walk to Saint-Michel at low tide. The abbey was founded in 708, one of the first sites consecrated to the Archangel Michael. The abbey is a textbook example of medieval architecture and its gardens, where the intrepid monks cultivated vegetables for their austere meals. You’ll eat richer fare in one of the harbor town’s many restaurants. Be sure to visit the boutique of the Mere Poulard, known to generations of French schoolchildren for her buttery cookies.

Paris
The ultimate day trip from the Chateau is, of course, Paris. Only 1.5 hours on the train you can spend the day in Paris exploring the fast-paced City of Light, and return back to the quiet French countryside for a locally prepared dinner and restful night’s sleep.
