B&B Normandy


Built in the 18th Century and ideally located between Bayeux (historic town of 15000 inhabitants) and the Landing Beaches, 2 km away from Bayeux, 21 km away from Caen and it memorial, 15 km away from Omaha Beach cemetery. The Chateau de la Ferriere opens its 5 bedrooms to national and international travelers.
The owners Pietro Chiapponi and Geoffroy de Ville d’Avray welcome you in their home, with unconventional chic.
The vast bedrooms and the drawing rooms, filled with family inherited furniture as well as “coups de cœur” found in Italian or French flea markets by owners,
open to magnificent views over the unspoiled nature around.

With its five bedrooms, its private lounge and its large park, Chateau de la Ferrière can be your “family House” for a few days.
Feel at home, between a walk on the beach and a visit to a museum.
After running in the park, or playing golf at Port-en-Bessin, come back on the terrace for a drink.
Pietro and Geoffroy won’t cook for you… But they will book a table for you in one of the delicious restaurants around if you wish.

Chambre Bleue Chateau de la Ferrière

“Шикарное Шато”
Можно сказать, что понравилось все. Но особенно удивило и было безумно приятно, что в течение всего пребывания нас обслуживали сами хозяева этого замечательного замка. Необыкновенно приятная атмосфера и потрясающие расположение. Я рекомендую однозначно.

“A unique holiday venue.”
We felt like aristocrats living in our own chateau. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, and an interesting person. We felt like personal guests in a home, rather than B and B customers.

“Friendly Stay in Beautiful Chateau!”
Grounds and rooms are beautiful. We loved meeting Jeffrey, the owner, the first night of our stay and sharing a glass of wine with him. We also loved Ipa, Julia and Lala – their dogs. Breakfast was beautiful and tasted great! Service was fantastic!

“Beautiful Chateau on the outskirts of Bayeux”
This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Bayeux and the D-Day beaches. We decided to stay near Bayeux because many of the organized tours of D-Day sites leave from the center of town, a mere 10 minutes from the chateau. We felt welcomed at the chateau. Our hosts, Geoffroy and Pietro, were attentive and helpful, providing excellent suggestions for local restaurants and activities. The room and amenities were lovely, and the grounds were restful after a long day of sightseeing. The breakfasts were generous, with freshly made eggs, croissants, and anything else you might want. The three resident dogs were friendly, well-behaved and fun to watch.

Un château tout confort à 10 km des plages du débarquement le tout dans un écrin de verdure de 15 ha et avec des propriétaires aux petits soins pour vous rendre le séjour inoubliable.
Le petit déjeuner est une merveille et le tout est préparé à la minute vraiment du travail de professionnel.
Toutes les chambres ont vue sur le parc et sont bien agencées grandes salle de bain literie super confortable et le manque de tv et de téléphone dans la chambre est très apaisant (il y a une tv et le téléphone dans le salon).
Une adresse à recommander à qui souhaite rayonner en Normandie.
Astuce pour la chambre : rien de particulier tout est bien et toutes les chambres se valent.

La situation du château était excellente tant pour son accès que pour la proximité des commodités ainsi que pour les nombreux sites touristiques et historiques de la région. L’accueil était à la hauteur de la majesté des lieux : chaleureux, convivial mais avec une pointe de noblesse très agréable. Le propriétaire est toujours à l’écoute de ses hôtes tout en restant très discret . Notre chambre (xxl) ainsi que la salle de bain (xxl) très bien équipée étaient très propres et somptueuses ( tout à fait conformes à la description ). Le petit déjeuner était excellent et à la carte, servi dans une porcelaine ravissante et une argenterie élégante avec des nappages brodés irréprochables cadrant tout à fait avec le décor de la bibliothèque du château. Nous avons fait confiance aux suggestions de Monsieur le Baron qui connait sans aucun doute les bonnes tables (qu’il réserve pour notre meilleure convenance) et les beaux endroits à ne pas manquer . Nous avons apprécié les attentions telles que eau et vin dans la chambre, l’accès au Wifi ou au pc à disposition dans le salon, parking… Aucune mauvaise surprise , le rapport qualité/prix est excellent. Nous étions tellement à l’aise que l’on prend vite goût à cette “vie de château”…Vivement recommandé !

+ (…) Great fun. From the first greeting to sitting with us to share a glass of wine & nibbles (complementary on arrival) to arranging meals/ taxis nothing was to much trouble. The Chateau setting is fabulous. We will return.
–  Nothing. Everyone & everything just fitted the setting perfectly.
