About this property

Lovely Romantic Apartment in a Castle. This apartment is in a rural setting.

Attractive large holiday home for romantic self catering apartments all within the chateau. The beautiful grounds include lovely gardens to sit in, children's playground (with sandpit, swings, wooden cabin and outdoor table-tennis), a large field for ball games, and animals in paddocks (donkey, horses) for the children to see.

Very suitable for short breaks/shopping, as the ferry port of Cherbourg is only 15 minutes away! But also a great place for a holiday in one of our comfortable apartments. A place you will never forget, many of our customers return and we hope you will do the same.
The chateau itself is a manor house, rebuilt in the 16th century. Chateau Le Val is situated in the heart of the countryside just outside the village of Brix. Only 10 miles from Cherbourg. La Manche has 200 miles of cliffs, bays and beautiful beaches. Superb location for visiting Mont St Michel, the D-Day landing beaches and the Cité de La Mer in Cherbourg as well as the charming towns of Bricquebec, Bayeux and Coutances. There are many activities to be found in the surrounding area including horse riding, golf, tennis, fishing, walking, cycling, many watersports and sand yachting on the long sandy beaches.
We offer a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where all ages are welcome.
Self Catering
Within the Chateau are several apartments catering for 2-8 people, which can be let separately. Weekly lets are normally Saturday to Saturday but, in low season, arrival and departure days can be varied to meet your requirements, and rental per night is possible. The apartments are stylishly furnished and well equipped with a cosy living room, 1-3 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen. All apartments have central heating and some have a log fire too.

About the Owner, Mrs Karen Twijnstra

I am a woman of 44 years, speaking French, English and Gerrman. We love to welcome our guests in this little part of the world where time stands still. 19 years ago we fell in love with this charming chateau and its beautiful park! We created a lovely family home where we rent out apartments with kitchen and rooms for B&B. I love nature, pets, tourism. We are really pleased to have guests and will look after you! Hope to share our dream with you!

Year property purchased 1996

The Owner Recommends

ideas of the area

Auchan, Carrefour or Le Clerc These hypermarkets are close by, where you can spend hours of shopping! We can give you the directions. Beaches You have a choice of many beaches on the 330km of coastline of Manche. The department has the most Blue Flag beaches in Normandy. There are so many unknown pretty beaches that you could find a new one every day. One of the prettiest beaches is Carteret or Réville, very good for small children. Château de Ravalets This beautiful château is worth visiting with its splendid gardens and playground for children at the back. Free admission. Cite de La Mer, Cherbourg A sea aquarium with a submarine, which you can visit inside, very special. Dining in Medieval Castle In a restaurant in Bricquebec is a superb medieval feel dining room where very friendly staff serve you original meals in a special atmosphere! Reasonable prices. Golf There is a golf course only 9 miles from the chateau (9 holes) there are 2 more golf courses within 25 miles. Harbour Restaurants In St Vaast La Hougue and Carteret are very nice fish restaurants; the fish is of course fresh and you have colourful views of the harbour. In Carteret, you can eat in the restaurant on the beach and see the sunset! (Not open in the winter). Hiking and Walking The area around the château is very hilly with pretty scenery. Suitable for lovely walks or hiking in Cap de La Hague. Horse Riding If you or your children would like an informal address for horse riding, we have a great address for you! In Etang Bertrand (7km) they take you for a ride on great horses through the lovely countryside. Landing Beaches We are close to the landing beaches, museum and other monuments from World War II. Location and Activities Tennis, golf and horse riding in village. Nearest Restaurant Around 7km there is a medieval restaurant with wonderful food (including good children's menu) in a really special dining room with suits of armour and a huge fire.
