“Understated, relaxed elegance in the Normandy countryside”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A handful of close friends and I spent the most enjoyable and relaxing week at Chateau de Courcy, a thoroughly charming and idyllic 17th century chateau located in the gorgeous Normandy countryside. Prepare to be transported to another time entirely; it did not take us long to appreciate the chateau's unique qualities and also its idiosyncrasies. If you are looking for a property with 5* amenities across the board, specifically perfectly updated bathrooms and kitchens, this may not meet your expectations. However, the opportunity to experience an historic, centuries owned, "grand family home" is special indeed. All of the rooms are elegant and ooze character and the pool, gardens, tennis court and moat (complete with 2 swans!) are like icing on the cake. The owner, Jean, could not have been more gracious, accessible and warm. He drove from Paris to meet us on arrival, gave us a thorough tour of the home and property and made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable. Jean checked in with us regularly (his english is excellent!) and was very pleased to answer any questions and make recommendations for local restaurants, markets and sightseeing excursions, all of which made the trip feel authentically french. A lovely housekeeper/cook is available to provide as much support as you desire --- she is an excellent cook and extremely pleasant. After long days of walking the coastline, exploring nearby towns, making the trip to Mount St. Michel and the D-Day Beaches, it was wonderful to return to delicious home cooked meals. We were sad when our week came to its end and we all have such fond memories of our time at Chateau de Courcy!

Liked best: the overall ambiance of chateau is perfect
Liked least: within overall context of trip, this did not end up being a major issue, but bathrooms inconsistent in quality and functionality across the bedrooms.

“A beautiful chateau and gardens”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We have stayed two years in a row at this idyllic house.
It takes 300 years to get a well balanced house and garden.
The in house chef made wonderful suppers of Normandy fare. The poll and tennis court allowed good exercise.
We'll placed to visit numerous historical sites and attractions.
Would go every year.
