A beautiful, tranquil place to stay. We had a difficult journey (getting very lost in Rouen at Friday rush hour) but the tension quickly fell away on arrival at Bonnemare. We had the entire place to ourselves - it was as though we had stepped into the pages of an historical novel for the night, as owners of an amazing Chateau. The owners recommended a simple, local bistro for supper and afterwards we wandered around the lovely grounds.
We stayed in the Raoul de Bonnemare room on the ground floor which is the least historic of the rooms. For us this was the perfect blend of character with modern comforts. We saw the other rooms in the tour given to us the next day - these rooms are even more astounding and historical - like sleeping in the part of a stately home normally roped off. Worth mentioning that in every room there are lovely, sparkling clean and modern en suite facilities.
Breakfast was delicious and huge... But what really made our stay was the gentle friendliness and hospitality of the owners. We were treated to an extensive private tour and explanation of the history. We really appreciated the opportunity to dust off our French language skills without causing impatience.
All in all, a lovely stay - highly recommended.
