A truly exceptional place with very attentive owners who will greet you but live in Paris. They have put their heart and soul into restoring the château with an eye for every detail. A famous war treaty was signed here and you can write your postcards at the desk where it happened.
An enchanting château of great charm and authenticity, this is a listed 17th century monument which has remained in the same family for the past 300 years. The surrender of Cherbourg between General Collins and General von Schlieben, also known as the "Servigny Treaty" was signed on 26 June 1944 in the halls of the château. It is located at the heart of the Cotentin region, close to sandy beaches, notably at Quinéville to the east (18km) and at Carteret to the west (29km). Cherbourg is just 21km to the north and you can easily reach Bayeux (65km) via the motorway 2.5km away.
Valognes is the closest small town (4km) to offer all shops and services, a Friday market, and a railway station that will take you to Paris direct. It boasts two museums, many "hôtels particuliers" (of which two can be visited), and a music festival in August. There is a good market at Bricquebec (10km) on Monday mornings next to a beautiful château. The landing beaches are close by (20 minutes' drive), as well as the war museum at Ste-Mère-l'Eglise (15km). There is a public tennis court at Yvetôt-Bocage (600m), a 9 hole golf course at Quinéville (17km) and an 18 hole golf course at Fontenay-sur-Mer (19km). Horse riding is possible at Brix (8km) and canoeing at St-Sauveur-le-Vicomte (15km).
