The perfect escape for a family or group of friends. For the first time in its 375 year history, the Château de l’Angotière is available for rental. It is located in the centre of Basse Normandie, and is only 50 minutes’ drive from the Mont St Michel, Bayeux and D-Day Landing Beaches and Cemeteries. The owners have spent ten years painstakingly restoring this incredible home to its former glory. The Chateau is definitely a ‘home’ for guests to enjoy and make their own for the duration of their stay.

There are nine beautiful bedrooms – seven ensuite, and the other two adjacent to their own bathroom.  All have double beds with the exception of one which has two singles. The master suite also has its own dressing room and snug. Five bedrooms are on the top floor whereas the other four are on the middle floor. The main rooms in the Chateau are the Galerie, Salon, Salle a Manger and Cuisine. There are sofas aplenty and three separate dining tables catering for 8 – 18 people.

To keep in shape whilst indulging in the fabulous food on offer in the local area, guests can work out in the small gym in the cellar and there is a tennis court in the grounds. Surrounding the Château there are beautiful lawned gardens which lead to both the White Terrace and the spectacular walled potager. For most of the year there are fresh fruits and vegetables all grown in a totally organic environment.

Listed as a site classé the 60 acres of private park and woodlands surrounding the Chateau can be explored at any time year – and guests can walk the many footpaths that have been restored over the last ten years. Hidden away in the woods are the 14 Stations of the Cross – massive stone crosses – within the woods.  This Chemin Croix was a noted site of pilgrimage for many years.

The woods lead through the Chemin Croix to La Chapelle-sur-Vire with its Abbey and the Route de Halage – a cycling and hiking path which leads all the way to the coast. Just two miles away is the Roches de Ham where there are the tallest inland cliffs in Normandy and a delightful creperie.

Within a short drive of the Château there are the three major sights of Normandy – the D-Day beaches, Mont St Michel and the Bayeux Tapestry.   There are many Abbeys, Chateaux and Gardens to visit as well as the wide open beaches of the Cotentin Peninsular. A must do is a visit to a local market where you can buy everything from fresh vegetables and cheese, to live chickens and lobster.

The house itself is full of history. There are listed fireplaces dating back to 1717, original Norman oak ceilings and plenty of interiors inspiration. Some of the wallpaper is an original Sanderson 1923 paper painted with panoramic views of Kew Gardens, which was found by an antique wallpaper dealer and had never been hung before.

The Battle for Normandy lasted from 6 June 1944 until the end of August. There are numerous museums, cemeteries and battlefield sites to visit. L’Angotière itself was liberated on 2 August 1944 and was a refuge for many displaced children from nearby St Lo. Just a week later, Colonel Hammond D Birks of the US 30th Infantry came for lunch with some of his officers – and a photographer to capture the moment.

Brittany Ferries operate from Portsmouth to Caen, and Poole to Cherbourg all year round, while in the Summer months these are supplemented by a fast catamaran service from Portsmouth to Cherbourg.

The Chateau is approximately 50 minutes drive from Caen and one hour from Cherbourg.

By Eurotunnel, the Chateau is 250 miles from the Tunnel Terminal – it’s Autoroute the whole way until the last 8 miles.
