We booked this trip to escape from the heat wave in Paris. Little did we know that we were about to discover a little piece of heaven in Normandy. The Chateau is situated in the countryside, so the ride there is beautiful, in the middle of the fields, seeing all types of animals. Great for kids!
We got a super warm welcome from the owner, who actually has a deep passion for art, beauty and "the age of enlightenment". So, don't be surprised to find a tasteful decor inside the Chateau, that reminds you of the time of the great kings of France.
The rooms look charming and they feel comfortable. When you open the windows in the morning, to feel the fresh air, it feels like you are in a different world, truly isolated from the noise of the big cities.
You have different options for the breakfast, we opted for a typical French one, with croissants, baguette, butter and jam. With coffee and orange juice of course. We liked the butter so much that we even went to the local manufacturer to get some for ourselves.
It was an ideal place to stay, during our trip, as it is close to all the beautiful coastline cities like: Etretat, Honfleur, Fecamp and (what the host recommended), the gorgeous village of Veules-les-Roses.
There is also a pool at the Chateau de Cleuville (heated) so if you want to just chill, stay in the sun and swim, that's also a relaxing possibility.
We truly enjoyed this place, it was so fun to wake up and take a walk around the Chateau and show my baby girl the animals across the fence. There is a tennis court, a playground (with swings, etc) and an elegant table with chairs where in the evening we were dining or simply enjoying a sip of rosé and breath fresh air.
Thank you Chateau de Cleuville for your kind welcome. We can't wait to be back!
