The Chateau d’Audrieu, as seen today, dates from the beginning of the 18th century, but its history goes back in to the time of William the Conqueror, when it was the residence of the Lord of Percy, the first ruler of these lands, whom according to legend was the personal chef of the Conqueror... The building was devastated by the wars, except for the two wings from the 15th century which still remain, as well as the central building from the 18th century. Bedrooms have been created in the wings whilst the central body houses the dining rooms, drawing rooms and some prestigious suites. All of the bedrooms have a small entrance (foyer) to guarantee privacy. There are five double attic rooms with country style decoration which are used essentially by younger clients or for single occupancy. The “First” category rooms are more spacious with more luxurious decoration and marble bathrooms. The Deluxe rooms and suites have king size beds and bathrooms particularly luxurious, some of them with Jacuzzi. An interesting observation about this outstanding chateau is that in its half board rate, one can choose “a la carte” any delicacy desired.

Garden & Pool
A large pool set in the heart of a lawn surrounded by hedges and bushes to protect from the wind… Set slightly away from the Chateau, a tranquil haven.
An English style park with trees of more than three hundred years old of many species: beech, oak, ash, chestnut, cedar… Three kilometres of pathway where one can linger in the shade on a summer day… A deer may be waiting for you round the corner.
The white garden with its fountain, the rose garden, the garden of cutting flowers and the mixed borders; a succession of enchanting spaces each with different design and colours.
At the Chateau d’Audrieu, all children are kings... In addition to the swimming-pool and playing in the park, a specially equipped area is reserved for them: a log cabin, the surprise of a tree-house perched in the branches of a purple beech tree, swings and toboggan… Shrieks of laughter from the garden.

On the road to Mont St-Michel, between the Pays d’Auge, the Suisse Normande, the plain of Caen, the Floral and Pearl Coasts and the Bessin region, the Chateau d’Audrieu enjoys a privileged position from which to discover the wealth of Normandy:
Just a few kilometres from the coast with the famous D-Day Landing beaches and seaside resorts of the Pearl Coast: sailing marinas and nautical clubs.
Towns of rich historical heritage such as Bayeux and its famous Queen Mathilda’s Tapestry or Caen, home of the Dukes of Normandy: abbeys, museums, Memorial…
The ducs de Normandie sent their sons to this Viking settlement to learn the Norse language. Bayeux has changed a lot since then, but was spared from bombardment in 1944.
This was the first French town liberated, and the citizens gave de Gaulle an enthusiastic welcome when he arrived on June 14. The town is filled with timbered houses, stone mansions, and cobblestone streets.
Visitors wanting to explore sites associated with "the Longest Day" flood the town, because many memorials are only 9.5 to 19 Kms. away. The cozy little streets are lined with shops, many selling World War II memorabilia, and more postcards and T-shirts than you'll ever need.
