Surprise!

Beautiful chateau and furniture. Cute gift shop. But the best was the gardens, flowers and the surprise water features

We visited this chateau in August 2016. Because the family lives here, we were only allowed to see the ground floor, which takes about 10-15 minutes to walk around. They have displayed some cute stuff in my opinion but my husband was not really amused with the collection of 'rubbish'. The old kitchen is okay, but nothing special. The whole... More

Overall we enjoyed the visit. The receptionist was very friendly, explaining that the chateau rooms and kitchens closed for a short period over lunchtime (only for 60 and 30 minutes).The other staff were perhaps a little protective of their jobs, but were very helpful in explaining things when we asked. The items of furniture in the chateau rooms and the... More

The chateau itself is sort of OK but is not well-presented - eg all the electric faux-candles are wonky in their stands, as if someone doesn't really care. The grounds are simply second-rate and are not well-cared for. The lawns are mowed but have weeds in them. Topiary hedges out the back were last trimmed ages ago and are overgrown... More

We visited on a warm Friday in mid May, at about 1pm and discovered that were the only visitors apart from an organised school trip. However, on leaving about 3.30 pm, another 5 cars had arrived. So in general the small Chateau and its extensive gardens are very quite! This is a shame as my wife and I believed this... More

While visiting a friend in Paris we decided to spend several days in Normandy. One of the places we stopped at was the Château de Vendeuvre. The place is huge. The first building where you get your tickets has miniatures and it was the least interesting, but it wasn't bad. Signs were in French and English. Also the guide/map in... More

We were looking for somewhere to visit as we had arrived early for our ferry crossing from Caen. Vendeuvre was very easy to get to and filled our time delightfully. It is a very pretty chateau and as a family still live there, quite homely. The staff were perfectly polite to us, although they did give us advice about what... More

Found this to be the most beautiful house and grounds I have ever visited, great for the grandchildren, gardens immaculate and we were expecting complications with the staff following earlier reviews, but they were just fine. We would most certainly visit the property again, thoroughly enjoyed by our group, youngest 7 years oldest 68 years.

Recently visited for a second time with our (small) dog. Lovely gardens and quirky museum & chateau, well worth a visit. A bit pricey compared to other similar places in the area. Could have been a perfect day out, if it wasn't for two of the female staff: The lady on the ticket desk TOLD us to visit the museum... More

I felt prompted to write this after reading some of the negative reviews. We have visited Chateau Vendeuvre at least 6 times over the past few years. We have always enjoyed it, no one has ever been rude to us, it's probably one of the places we take our visitors to most, especially the gardens. Looking forward to visiting again... More
