Back to the amazing chateau
We returned to Chateau de Courcy after some years and it is still a dream to stay there. The castle and the gardens are in perfect condition and we all loved to be there once again. The atmosphere is elegant, but you will feel at home in a heartbeat. The tennis court was great and we managed to organise some lessons for everyone. The chateau is close to the beach and some great restaurants. It is a wonderful place to spend a relaxed holiday with friends and family. We will most definitely return soon.

Understated, relaxed elegance in the Normandy countryside
A handful of close friends and I spent the most enjoyable and relaxing week at Chateau de Courcy, a thoroughly charming and idyllic 17th century chateau located in the gorgeous Normandy countryside. Prepare to be transported to another time entirely; it did not take us long to appreciate the chateau's unique qualities and also its idiosyncrasies. If you are looking for a property with 5* amenities across the board, specifically perfectly updated bathrooms and kitchens, this may not meet your expectations. However, the opportunity to experience an historic, centuries owned, "grand family home" is special indeed. All of the rooms are elegant and ooze character and the pool, gardens, tennis court and moat (complete with 2 swans!) are like icing on the cake. The owner, Jean, could not have been more gracious, accessible and warm. He drove from Paris to meet us on arrival, gave us a thorough tour of the home and property and made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable. Jean checked in with us regularly (his english is excellent!) and was very pleased to answer any questions and make recommendations for local restaurants, markets and sightseeing excursions, all of which made the trip feel authentically french. A lovely housekeeper/cook is available to provide as much support as you desire --- she is an excellent cook and extremely pleasant. After long days of walking the coastline, exploring nearby towns, making the trip to Mount St. Michel and the D-Day Beaches, it was wonderful to return to delicious home cooked meals. We were sad when our week came to its end and we all have such fond memories of our time at Chateau de Courcy!

Most incredible time- living in a fairy tail for one week
This chateau is just a dream come true. The photos look nice but it is even more impressive in reality. We were lucky to find an available week and the booking process was very easy. Jean is just wonderful. He came from Paris to greet us on our arrival and explained everything and even introduced us to the local fishmonger. The property is very well kept- the house and the gardens are always perfect. There are some gardener looking after the wonderful gardens and the Madame, who is looking after the Chateau is also a great cook. We, a group of friends with children, spent lovely hours at the pool and in the gardens and we all felt like little prince and princess. In the evening we enjoyed the delicious dinners, which were prepared for us and the evening ended with a digestive in one of the living rooms. All rooms are furnished with precious antiques and all bathrooms are equipped with high class facilities. Also the kitchen was a dream: Very atmospheric but with first class equipment. The beach is near by and there are a lot of things to explore in the area. We will definitely come back! We all felt so lucky to be able to stay in such a wonderful place and also felt very welcome and taken care of. I must admit, that absolutely all expectations were exceeded a lot. Chateau de Courcy is definitely the greatest place I have stayed at.

A beautiful chateau and gardens
We have stayed two years in a row at this idyllic house. It takes 300 years to get a well balanced house and garden. The in house chef made wonderful suppers of Normandy fare. The poll and tennis court allowed good exercise. We'll placed to visit numerous historical sites and attractions. Would go every year.
