Château La Cour - Le Jardin

Culey le Patry, Calvados

13th-century château and swish apartment tucked within - modern, romantic: roll top bath, king-size bed and every attention to detail


1 bed


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


Up a stone staircase, through a small door and into an unexpected world of grand windows, oak-panelled doors and elegant rooms. Lesley and David, who have wisely chosen to settle in France, are the friendly lord and lady of this 13th-century château in deep countryside, with views stretching over the Suisse Normande. Your apartment, a private and discreet three-room suite, is light, spacious and gracious – from the parquet corridor with floor-to-ceiling windows to the oak-panelled doors and the richly coloured curtains falling in folds to the floor. If you think the bedroom is swish – king-size bed, stacks of cushions – just wait until you see the bathroom; gleaming white with brushed chrome, its roll top bath has space enough to perch a G&T. The living area, a soft, roomy space of sofas, hi-tech lights and natural linen with a dining table by the window to feed your daydreams, has a futuristic corner kitchen. Views are beautiful, gardens and vegetable patch a delight. Flowers, welcome groceries, binoculars for birds, hosts who love to spoil… Sawday grand cru.

David & Lesley are brilliant hosts. The breakfasts are delicious and varied with many local and home made products. Lesley is a first class chef and her dinners which she cooks and serves several times a week are a must. We stayed in the apartment which is vast and has every amenity. The gardens which David takes great pride in are a pleasure to walk around or laze the day away with a good book. The local area is beautiful with many interesting and historic places to visit.
