“Awesome B&B in a Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We love our stay at Chateau Damingy! Vincent, Corrine and little Paul are great hosts and really help make your stay comfortable. Our room was huge with a sitting room (sofa bed), bedroom, modern bath with a jetted tub and a solarium room. The rooms were spotless and well-maintained with nice little antique touches here and there. Vincent is an excellent cook (he owned a bistro in Paris) and will make you an omelet or eggs of any type at breakfast. There are lots of options at breakfast, which is included, cereal, pastries, toast, jams, cheese, meat, bacon and juice.

We used the chateau as a home base to visit both Bayeux and the D-Day beaches. The location was perfect and very quiet. If you are coming from Bayeux do not exit at St. Martin Entrees, but continue on until you see a sign for Zones Activities Damingy and follow the signs, once you exit the roadway and round the curve the chateau entrance is straight in front of you.

I would love to stay Chateau Damingy again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

If you would like to have nice dinner and go to bed right after dinner, stay here. Vincent, I believe he used to own his restaurant, is an excellent chef. A six course dinner with wine cost less than Euro 30. Very delicious. He accompdated my wife's dietary request. His breakfast is one the bests in European B&Bs we ever had. As he seems to spend many hours for cooking , he does not serve dinner without advance notice. You would better request dinner at the time of room reservation. Otherwise you may miss it.

We stayed for three nights during a short trip to Normandie. The chateau is very well situated for all the major attractions in the area and it is easy to located - just off exit 36. The chateau and its grounds are very attractive and there are lots of car parking spaces.
Our room was large and modern with a good sized en-suite. It was comfortable and pleasant - the bottled water was a good and welcome touch.
We had the evening meal on all three nights and the food was wonderful - Vincent is an excellent chef. We had aperitifs with canapes; starter with white wine; sorbet; main course with red wine; Normandie cheeses; and then dessert. Bread, water etc. And the social experience was also very good as we met other guests from France, USA, UK, and Belgium and had many interesting conversations.
The breakfasts were also very good - bread, pastries, fruit, cereal, coffee, etc and the option of eggs if desired.
Vincent and Corinne [and little Paul!] are excellent hosts and if we return to this area we would have no hesitation in returning to Damigny. Treat yourself and go there now!!

What a pleasure to stay with Vincent and Corinne (and their son Paul). They run a beautiful bed and breakfast just south of Bayeux.
The grounds are beautiful and I am sure you won’t be disappointed with any of the rooms. A very nice and quiet area but you will need a car to get anywhere (restaurants etc.). Not a problem though because you should book one of their dinners at their Chateau. They are wonderful cooks and it is well worth the price.
If you are there to see the D Day history this is very close to everything. Make sure you have time also to see the main cathedral in Bayeux as it is quite stunning, especially at night when it is lit up. As well be sure to see the Bayeux tapestry.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great.

Stayed two nights here in September 2012 and loved it! Peaceful, quiet and a great rural setting. Vincent and his wife have done a fabulous job in renewing this classic chateau home just outside of Bayeux. If you happen to be staying on a night in which Vincent is offering a dinner, by all means sign up! It is wonderful and since he is a Paris trained chef your will not go away hungry. Don't expect a restaurant setting because you will sit at one big table and join the family for dinner. We even tried to rebook for the next dinner but they were full. As for the location it was very easy to get to all the Normandy Beaches as well as Mount St Michel and the museum at Caen.

Room Tip: They are all good but you will need to walk up some stairs to get to them.

Had a great stay at this beautiful Chateau in late July. Vincent and Corinne are wonderful hosts and keep the property in top shape. The rooms are huge and comfortable, we even had a spa bath in our room. Vincent makes amazing meals including breakfast and the Table D' Hote dinner. Both were absolutely delicious. Also, since we didn't have a car, Vincent picked us up at the train station and brought us to the chateau. He also called a cab for us each morning so that we could get into town for our tours that we had booked to Mont St. Michel and DDAY Tours.

Room Tip: Suite de Catherine

Very comfortable clean spacious room. The chateau is well run by Vincent and Corinne. Excellent value. Should you reserve dinner in advance, for 28 Euro you will have an aperatif, white and red wine and a wonderful 4 course dinner ( hors d'ouvres, appetizer, entree, cheese, and dessert) , all homemade by Chef Vincent. Breakfast is included with your room, has the usual breads, homemade jams, yogurt, fresh fruit, and also eggs, cooked to order, with bacon, if requested. You will need a car to drive to this chateau, though it is an easy 7 minute drive to downtown Bayeux. To find it, follow the simple directions from Vincent, or set your GPS with coordinates. You will otherwise not find the address with your GPS. This is a perfect location for exploring the entire Normandy coast by car. Spend several days and see it all, then relax in the evening with an excellent meal. All meals are served at a large table, so you will also meet the other guests. Children are welcome here, since the owners also have a 2 year old, who you will see running about.

Room Tip: We had the blue room with a bath tub. Very spacious.
