The history of the Château d’Audrieu is closely linked to the history of Normandy and its most famous representative, William the Conqueror. He became William II of Normandy in 1035 after the death of his father. He turned Normandy into a powerful duchy, which was independent of the Kingdom of France. Following his victory at the Battle of Hastings, William became the king of England in 1066. His epic is illustrated by the Bayeux Tapestry, a precious embroidery from the 11th century, which is listed on the Memory of the World register by the UNESCO and preserved in the William the Conqueror Centre in the town of Bayeux. The village of Audrieu, which was already known during Antiquity as Alderium, is only a dozen kilometres away from Bayeux. Traces of Gallo-Roman houses and a feudal motte were found there. The village also harbours the Gothic church Notre Dame d’Audrieu. The château is situated close to the village. Its current architecture is from the beginning of the 18th century, but its history dates back to the 11th century. Originally, the seigneury of Audrieu belonged to the Percy family. One of the family members, William de Percy, participated in the battle of Hastings alongside William the Conqueror. According to the legend, Sir de Percy was William the Conqueror’s personal cook. I t is said that at Hastings he knocked out a few Saxons by hitting them with a skimmer. For this he was ennobled, became the first lord of Hastings and sired the dukedom of Northumberland. His descendants founded the Juaye-Mondaye Abbey (which is nearby and worth a visit) and built the château. In 1593, Audrieu was passed down to the Séran family, following the marriage between Marguerite de Percy and Guillaume de Séran, who was a gentleman of the king’s chamber. He saw his land elevated to a barony in 1615. The château was sold during the French Revolution and returned to the Séran family during the Bourbon Revolution. It became the property of the Livry-Level family, following the marriage between Nicole Saillard de Boisberthe, a descendant of the Séran family, and Philippe Livry-Level (1898- 1960), who was a member of the French resistance, Free France pilot, former mayor of Audrieu and former MP of Calvados. During the Second World War, the German army set up their headquarters here. On the 8th of June 1944, 24 members of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division and two British soldiers were killed, in the orchards, forests and clearings around the château. The château has been listed as a historical monument since the 27th of December 1967. It became a 5-star hotel and a member of the prestigious Relais et Châteaux Association in 1977.

The room we had was fantastic, windows overlooking the forest and the grounds. Our bath had fireplace, huge tub and separate shower, double sinks. The room was beautifully decorated, and spacious, as was the bathroom. Lovely grounds, pool and gardens. Very helpful front of the house staff. Restaurant staff was not so great. Slow service and rather condescending breakfast staff. Dinner was delicious, but they were seriously understaffed. Our waiter did his best.

We expected, and wanted, to love this property. But unfortunately, it is so badly managed that our visit was marred by repeated instances of under-staffing and poor maintenance. The staff did their very best. But we had one staff person who was responsible for reception, bar service, AND restaurant service! He would run back and forth between the restaurant, the bar and the front desk to try to cover all the bases. One evening, we were in the bar and wanted to order off the bar menu. We were told that the Chef would NOT provide the bar food while he was managing the restaurant meal. But we had been told that we could not eat at the restaurant because they were full and we had no car to go elsewhere. So we went to bed hungry. It was inexcusable. Several items in our room did not work. The heating/ventilation system was useless. Kudos to the staff. They did the best they could given the extreme lack of resources.

The staff are truly excellent — hardworking and dedicated to doing whatever it takes. We were really impressed. The property is lovely, both inside and out. However, the rooms are really dark, the heating/ventilation does not work, the heated towel rack did not work, our friend’s safe did not work, the shower was sit down only, the hot water was spotty. In addition, the property is quite far from town so guests without cars must rely on the hotel food options which are extremely limited. Have to say again how very much we appreciated their excellent staff.

I don’t have anything different to say from the other guests regarding breakfast and bar service. We did reserve just a few weeks before we checked in, during a busy tourist period in the area, and didn’t have a lot of choice in rooms. Even with a last choice room it was not as should be for a hotel of that quality. The bathroom was like that of a motel, and there were only two small windows, which you could only look out of when standing up. Massage was so so. I hope they increase their staffing, for the sake of the guests and the hotel employees. If service is improved they could at least bump up to a three or four.
