Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality to the Defense Attach Office during this past D-Day week here in Normandy. Everyone enjoyed the experience immensely and will remember the visit for the rest of their lives. To those other Americans considering leasing some sort of chateau or staying at a B&B for an experience in Normandy, I can strongly recommend the Chateau as an unforgettable experience that is absolutely enjoyable. Arnaud and Berengere are as kind and honest as one could ever expect to encounter. The others that work at the chateau are also just top notch personnel - very helpful, kind, and considerate; they represent the very best of the French people. The chateau is in impeccable shape and offers many amenities for everyone to enjoy; it's a great place for a group to have a wonderful experience. It is a fascinating place full of history that will certainly inspire even the novice historian buff. Everyone that I know that has stayed here has absolutely loved the place. If you are considering the Chateau as a possible visit location in Normandy, I can strongly recommend the place; you can't beat it!
Everything was perfect

I am sorry for delay in writing to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Chateau. The entire family had a wonderful time in that very beautiful place. Everything was perfect. Francoise and Gwenelle were both truly helpful and made our stay comfortable and well fed! You have done such a beautiful job on the Chateau itself with each room having an ensuite bathroom, wifi, and cable television. All the modern conveniences in an historical setting. I will recommend to friends and I will not be surprised if you hear from them. Again, thank you, and best regards
We had a truly exceptional experience

Having stayed at the Chateau this June we can echo the sentiments of the American Embassay, and add a few comments. We brought our entire family (three generations) and had a truly exceptional experience in this fairy tale setting. The historical tours of the area, including the WWII sites, were fascinating, but simply staying here was a treat in itself, from swimming, cycling, and relaxing, to playing soccer on the lawn, or playing in the children's manor and engaging in an eleborate treasure hunt. It was a superb vacation and our hosts were extremely gracious. We hope to return.
