We spent a month in the summer of 2013 exploring Germany, Norway, and France, ending our trip in Normandy with a stay that we ended up extending at Chateau de Vouilly. As a historian who focuses on the Second World War, I was incredibly excited to make a return (and extended) stay to the region with a rental car this... More

My parents and I used this as our base while exploring the Normandy D-Day sites in April 2013 and I have to say that we have fondly talked and reminisced about our stay at Chateau de Vouilly many times ever since. I found the Chateau on Trip Advisor and wanted something unique for us to experience while staying in the... More

If you are looking for a place with lots of amenities, this is not for you. If you are looking for a place that has lots of history associated along with a very gracious host then this might be your place. It's old! Lots of stairs, simple but very good breakfast on a real working farm. If you require a... More

A lovely experience with a fascinating bit of history, the Chateau Vouilly is, as others have noted, hard to find the first time after quite a pleasant drive through small french country towns. You will not be going here unless you have a car and are comfortable navigating with a map or GPS. There are only 4 rooms available for... More

We drove from Paris to the Chateau de Vouilly in a rented car with GPS. It was challenging to find the Chateau...yes, even with the GPS! Luckily, I had printed out the directions from the chateau's website and we managed to find it in the end...with the help of the GPS and the website's directions. We have never stayed in... More

Located in the quiet town of Vouilly, we were not quite sure what to expect on our arrival at the Chateau de Vouilly. We were all excited (and relieved) as we drove up to the chateau. The grounds are kept beautifully and great for a walk. We were luck enough to join the owner, James, and his three dogs for... More

We were 3 couples traveling together and visiting the beaches of Normandy and we are all in agreement that staying at Chateau de Vouilly was definitely one of the true highlights of our trip! The Hamel's were very welcoming and gracious hosts, eager to share the history of their home and the area. Make no mistake that this lovely place... More

The most moving, and arguably the most memorable, moments of a month-long trip to France last September occurred in and around Mr. and Mrs. James Hamel's magnificent Chateau Vouilly and farm. Site of the first press room following the D-Day Landings in June 1944, and briefly invasion commander Gen. Omar Bradley's residence at that time, the Hamels embody the spirit... More

My wife and I spent three nights at the Chateau de Vouiilly in September and used it as our base to visit the D-Day beaches. The chateau and surrounding farm exude history with some portions dating back to the 10th century. James and his family are marvelous and accommodating hosts and he has a cornucopia of books, maps and information... More

We spent 2 nights in the magic Orangerie suite, 3 rooms with wonderful views. The chateau, the gardens, the nearby pond, and the farm all offer unforgettable experiences and our family enjoyed every moment. We were having breakfast in the very same room where the press reports were typed during D-day…a very significant detail for my history studying son. James... More
