site closed despite info on website

Arrived at the site 10 Augustv2020 after checking the website that it was open, only to find a notice saying that it was closed for the season. Having driven about 20 miles this was very annoying. Much better communication needed. The signs at the end of the road should say that the chateau and gardens are closed. We are very annoyed after a wasted journey.

Beautiful gardens off the beaten track

A work in progress with planting, but already looking lovely, well cared for and apparently well funded privately, fabulous shrubbery with complex topiary in a variety of styles using more than one type ot tree or shrub in a single concept. No real access to the chateau itself except one delicious library in a n 18th century style, but the gardens themselves were a wonder, full marks to for a guide leaflet in perfect English. Has wild boar statues, plenty of seats, masses of huge trees and grezt views around it, but access is via a modern housing complex, oddly.

Abject failure

Checked the opening times on the web site before we set off to visit the gardens. Arrived at the chateau at 2 minutes past 1 to find the carpark gate locked with a chalkboard message on the gate saying that it was closed between 1 and 2. Disappointed we went to Lisieux, had a wander around and a really pleasant cop of tea at a little cafe by the tourist office.

Back at the chateau by 2:10 and the gates were still shut and chained, hung around until 2:30 assuming the general casual attitude to timekeeping, but the gates remained closed and chained with the 'open' notice still clearly displayed. Finally gave up and went to Honfleur which was open !

If you are really keen to see these gardens, it might be worth ringing up beforehand to check the opening times, but even then probably remain sceptical and don't travel too far to visit.
