How many people can say they stayed in a beautiful castle in Normandie? A strikingly beautiful location, lovely apartment with charming décor, beautiful landscaping and very comfortable accommodations and amenities. Claudia's kind hospitality made our stay even more special, learning the fascinating history of this beautiful castle over coffee. Truly a memorable stay. We wish we could have stayed longer and would love to return. Very convenient to Bayeux.
Thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at L'Orangerie du Grand Jardin in the gite Pastel. This attractive and recently fully renovated accommodation, furnished in a period style, is located in a rural setting near Bayeux. Accessed by country lanes it was an excellent base for our party of three couples to tour the region. Attached to an 18th century chateau, it comprised a generously sized lounge/dining room/ kitchen and master bedroom on the ground floor with two further bedrooms and a shared bathroom upstairs. The toilet for the master bedroom is located in the lounge/dining room/ kitchen area instead of the ensuite bathroom. The Owner, Madame Claudia, lived next door with her family. She spoke good English and proved to be a helpful but not intrusive hostess. There are two apparently similar units. Recommended.
lovely two bedroom ground floor unit with access to the garden on both sides, views of the farmland over the pond, spacious, clean, comfortable with a great host.
A wonderful place to stay when visiting the Normandy area. My family of five was very comfortable in a three bedroom addition to the main home. We were only about 15 minutes away from Bayeux. Claudia is a wonderful and gracious host, and made sure everything was perfect for us. A wonderful place in the French countryside.
Orangerie du Grand is in a great location about a 5-10 minute drive from the center of Bayeux. The accommodations were perfect for our family of 5. The kids enjoyed the ping-pong table out in the garden area each evening. Claudia was a great host and we enjoyed coffee and the history of the castle during our stay. Highly recommend!
We have just enjoyed 7 Nights at Orangerie du Grand Jardin. Quiet area outside Bayeux where you can relax and enjoy the Area .
The pictures for this property almost looked to good to be true, but the reality is even more impressive. These are spacious, luxurious accommodations in a charming little village about 10 minutes' drive from Bayeux. Everything was spotlessly clean and in good working order. The kitchen is adequately supplied with tableware, basic utensils, etc., so you could do your own food prep if you wish. The beds and linens were all first rate.
The apartment we were in has three bedrooms and could very comfortably hold 3 couples without feeling crowded. I believe the other apartment is similar. They are contained in a new wing added on to a historic chateau, and the grounds include gardens, an orchard and a pond.
Finally, Claudia, our hostess, was a delight. Our communications prior to arrival were handled promptly, and she was a good source of local information once we arrived. She and her husband live on the property, so that made our stay even more delightful. Most impressive to us was how she volunteered to intervene with Air France regarding a piece of missing luggage. Had it not been for her "above and beyond" efforts, I doubt that we would have been reunited with our suitcase until we returned to the U.S.
We have stayed at many properties over the years. This is now our #1 favorite! Highly recommended
