Chateau d’Audrieu became a hotel in 1976, but the building itself dates back at least to the beginning of the 18th century. Legend has it that the Lord of Percy, who originally oversaw the chateau's 30 hectares of land, was also personal chef to William the Conqueror.

The hotel has 29 renovated rooms and suites—27 in the main building and 2 in the small cottage immediately beside the main chateau. The top accommodations are the deluxe rooms in the detached cottages, which are spacious and decorated in subdued colors with large, almost floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the chateau's elegant landscape. The bathrooms are spacious and modern with oversized bathtubs and large rain showers.

The recently renovated 1715 Bar is great for a drink before heading downstairs to the chateau’s gastronomic restaurant, Le Serán, which is part of  Relais & Chateaux. There aren't any restaurants nearby, so guests will be eating most meals on property or can rent a car to dine in Bayeaux.

With multiple gardens and an expansive park, guests at Chateau d’Audrieu will want to spend their time outside. Guests can use one of the complimentary bicycles to ride around the park and into the tiny village of Audrieu. There is also an outdoor pool, a small playground and a tree house, making this an ideal choice for families.

Who Should Stay

Families, smaller groups or even couples who want a sense of place and Norman history and do not mind driving for 20-30 minutes to places of interest and sightseeing.
