Chateau de Canisy        

 6-8 Rue Kergorlay 50750 Canisy - Normandie - France  50750 Canisy − France

Canisy is located in the Cotentin peninsula of Normandy, near D-Day invasion beaches, and Mont Saint Michel, thus not far from Brittany. This is the fantastic land of Barbey d'Aurevilly and homeland of Alexis de Tocqueville. Lost in the vast park and in its forest and farm land of 300 hectares, bordered by a romantic pond, the robust medieval tower proudly rise from n architectural ensemble humanized in the Renaissance. Canisy is a reflection of so many centuries, and been passed down in the family from generation to generation, and now to me. I became the proprietor following my father, almost thirty years ago.

With the help of my wife Marie-Christine, of some family members, and of many friends, we've worked hard to adapt the castle to today's world, to transform it into this elegant and welcoming place where so many people from all over the world love to com to be restored, to share moments of friendship, laughter, exchange of ideas, music and celebrations, and sometimes also to do some intense work in solitude.

Chateau de Canisy

The castle of Canisy is situated near Saint Lo, a Norman city in the Cotentin, peninsula of western Normandy (near Mont Saint Michel and the D-Day invasion beaches). 

It is three hours by car from Paris and two hours and twenty minutes, by train from Paris to Lison, the nearest rail station.

Canisy offers to its guests 16 rooms and suites.

Therefore Canisy can accommodate groups of thirty to forty people with an exclusive reservation for private receptions, and as many as twenty-five people for a seminar. Additional rooms can be reserved in nearby hotels for seminars attended by larger number of people. Each suite or room has a private bathroom.

All the rooms are decorated with period furnitures and paintings, giving them a unique atmosphere of authenticity and refinement. Each room has been redecorated by Marie-Christine de Kergorlay and no two rooms are alike. 

Please note: to assure the preservation and the comfort of the rooms, all the rooms of the castle are non-smoking.
