Set in 25 hectares of wooded parkland and magnificent gardens, this 18th century château is a prime base for explorations of Normandy, as well as being an enchanting destination in its own right. Enjoying listed status as a historical monument, the château retains features such as original ceiling beams and fireplaces, as well as period furniture. All modern creature comforts were considered in the transformation of the château into a luxury hotel, as well as playful touches such as the addition of a Luxury Treehouse with a vast terrace in the gardens - the perfect romantic hideaway for couples.
Château d’Audieu is noted for its exceptional cuisine, including its fine dining restaurant, Le Séran. Breakfast served on La Terrace with beautiful views of the garden is always an enjoyable way to start the day, and the hotel kitchens are supplied by its own organic gardens. These gardens also produce cider using local apples following the traditional recipe, teas from garden botanicals and honey from the estate hives. A full-service spa by Sothys is another welcome addition to the historic estate, providing a peaceful haven from which to indulge in a soothing treatment, and a heated outdoor swimming pool provides further options for your downtime.
The château is located just a short distance from the Normandy coast and, in particular, the famed D-Day Landing beaches. Explore the region’s historic towns such as Caen, home of William the Conqueror, and marvel at the Bayeux tapestry, a perfect visual representation of Anglo-French history from the 11th century. For relaxed explorations of the château’s immediate surroundings, hotel guests can also take advantage of the estate’s complimentary bicycles, perhaps rounded off with a gourmet picnic in the exquisite gardens.
