We had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful castle this past August 2019. The property was nicely maintained and very vast. My family truly enjoyed our time there and the kids ran in the grass, went fishing in the lake (and caught a fish) and we did archery as well. The castle was basically our private property during our stay and we slept so well as it was very quiet. The staff was hospitable and we felt like royalty with our wonderful buffet breakfast with the tastiest strawberries and fresh squeezed juices. Our private dinner was served in the main dining room with a bottle of red and bottle of white waiting for us along with tea and port for after dinner. The Countess was so gracious as she welcomed us making sure we were situated and had everything we needed. Each room is truly unique! Being in the Count’s family for so long, you can see the details and history of the chateau as you walk throughout the building...from the books, the furniture and the paintings on the wall. One of our rooms had an extravagant gold tiled bathtub and sink. Another room had my girls feeling like Rapunzel since we were literally in the top pointed tower. We also liked the shampoo and conditioner the chateau supplied. We had the fortune of meeting another family visiting from another continent and we enjoyed making new friends and our kids also had friends to play with. I would advise to rent a car while there. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a rental to fit the 6 of us and our luggage. The beaches of Normandy are close by and so is Mont Saint Michel but it is quite a costly taxi ride. Learn some basic French as the people in this area don’t speak English as well but luckily my basic French from school was sufficient enough to get by. Book your stay here now!!

We stayed here on several occasions over the years and each time its been an amazing experience. The rooms are magnificent and the food is so good. The grounds are massive over 700 acres and well kept. I first went there in 1987 as a guest of Denis de Kergolay the present owner. One cant help falling for a place like this so it became a regular haunt for me and my family. Highly recommend a stay here. Surrounded in ww2 history close to beach and st Lo.

When our group of 14 family members drove up to the castle, we couldn't believe we were going to stay someplace so impressive. Everything was as good as we could expect -- rooms, furnishings, and meals, of course,but even better was how accommodating the entire staff was, especially Sophie. They went out of their way in so many ways to make sure that we felt that this was our home for as long as we were there. The staff was always present and yet discreet, so we didn't feel like they were watching over us to make sure we didn't steal the silver. A good breakfast was served before we started each day's activities, and upon our return we were met with drinks (try the Calvados!) followed by a fabulous dinner. Beds and pillows were quite comfortable, and a good night's sleep left us ready for the next day. If you stay here (and you should), make sure you set aside some time to simply enjoy the castle and grounds, rather than treating it as simply a place to sleep. Walk around the grounds for a few hours, relax in front of the fireplace with a drink, talk with the other guests, try your hand at archery, listen to the stories about the family Kergorlay's history, and take plenty of pictures -- you'll want to remember this place for as long as possible. Note: This is a real castle that is hundreds of years old. It isn't just the shell of a castle from which the interior has been entirely stripped and rebuilt with modern techniques. As such, you find a lot of things which you won't find in a Holiday Inn -- a bathroom might be a little small, a floor squeaks a little, etc. None of these things should be a reason to not stay here. In fact, I think they add to the character of the place and remind you of the history of the property.

What a stunning weekend in Normandy at the Castle of Canisy. It seems really remarquable to me that since more than one thousand year, the same family owns this castle in a very aristocratic way. This atmosphere makes me part of history and let’s me enter in the best tale of France. I had an authentic and unforgettable experience, thank you so much!

Staying in the château has been an amazing experience for me and my friends. All is beauty. We have received such a warm greeting from the Count and Countess who made us very kindly visit the chateau and explain the history of this chateau remained for 1000 years in the same family. It is much more than a hotel, a living castle and at the same time decorated with beautiful silk fabrics and the comfort of marble bathrooms, some with copper bathtubs. We had the feeling to be privileged guests. My suite (Polignac) had a fantastic view of the lake, an authentic canopy, and two bathrooms. I recommend it absolutely. The dinner was excellent and served each evening in a different place. My favorite place was the music room and I recommend it for its very warm and unique atmosphere. Breakfast was also perfect in the great dining room. We had a half day rest after visiting the Landing beaches and we were able to do archery and cricket in the vegetable garden. I am sure we will be back! We highly recommend it.
