Experience our very own Château du Molay, Normandy

The stunning Normandy region is our most popular travel destination. From the Norman Conquest of England (1066) to the D-Day landings (1944), Normandy played a big role in shaping Europe as we know it today. Normandy is also famed for its many charms: a dramatic coastline, sandy beaches, long dunes, beautiful countryside, cheese and apples – to name but a few.

Our exclusive 18th century Château du Molay can accommodate 195 guests in 42 en-suite bedrooms and is set amongst 38 acres of beautiful private parkland.
