My wife and I spent two nights at the Chateau de Colombieres during our honeymoon. Our time and the Chateau was the most enjoyable aspect of our entire marvellous trip.
The accomodations are wonderful. We were housed in the Chambre Louis XVI, which was large and elegant.
The Count and Countess de Maupeou, were the perfect hosts. Count de Maupeou was so generous with his time and hospitality. I could not image a more knowledgable or gracious host. He takes enormous pride in the history and heritage of the Chateau, and was more than happy to recount both the sites and his families history to my wife and I.
As other guests have mentioned during the evening the Chateau is lit up which makes for a very romantic stroll around the grounds. My wife couldn't help but feel like a fairy tale princess given the surroundings.
The location does provide a very convenient central base from which some of the most interesting Normandy sites (Bayeux, D-Day Landing Beaches, Mont St Michel) can easily be accessed and explored. The area immediately around Colombieres is well worth exploring as well, as it offers lush countryside and interesting marshland.
If your planning a trip to the Normandy region, do yourself a favour and make sure you spend a few nights at this wonderful Chateau.
