Château d'Audrieu

Calvados, nr Caen

Château d’Audrieu is located in the heart of the Normandy countryside in northern France, between Caen and Bayeux, just over 2 hours from Paris. The elegantly proportioned château offers the warm welcome of a family home, and is set in 62 acres of parkland and gardens.

The château expertly mixes the traditional and contemporary. Externally, the château is a historical monument and the original architecture remains largely unchanged. Inside, rejuvenation work reflects the early 1700's when the château was built, whilst incorporating the warmth and comforts of a modern luxury hotel.

Bedrooms

The château itself has four room types, which offer views across the gardens, park or the majestic court. Bedrooms range from the comfortable Classic Rooms, to the spacious Suites, with their separate living rooms. Alternatively, choose the Luxury Tree House, which includes a terrace area within its 70-square-metre footage, plus a bathroom with a bathtub. Perched in the trees, this accommodation offers an exceptional panorama of the gardens.

Dining

The large restaurant is painted bright red in a colour known as 'Terre d’Égypte'. The menu includes fresh seasonal produce from the garden. A 600-bottle wine cellar offers a wide selection of wines, incorporating the vast majority of France’s wine-producing areas, as well as several from across Europe and beyond. The sommelier’s 'favourites' list is provided for those who would like some guidance.

Leisure

Within the grounds is a large outdoor swimming pool, heated to 25 degrees. The pool has changing rooms, with towels and pool slippers provided. The hotel’s spa offers rejuvenating massages and facials, and includes gym facilities.

Location

Normandy’s historical heritage is very rich. Its most famous figure is William the Conqueror. He became William II of Normandy in 1035 after the death of his father and turned Normandy into a powerful duchy, independent of the Kingdom of France. Following his victory at the Battle of Hastings, William became King of England in 1066, an event illustrated on the Bayeux Tapestry.

The nearby Normandy coast offers a large range of seaside activities in the summer, including outdoor sports, kite-surfing, sand-yachting as well as horse-back riding and cycling in a romantic landscape.

The château is the ideal starting point for visiting the D-day museums and memorial sites, and is located less than half an hour away from the Normandy Landing beaches.

The château can organise a hot-air balloon trip, book a round of golf for its customers, recommend the region’s best addresses for cider tastings etc. Cycling, horse-back riding and sailing are all available locally.
