Built in the 18th Century and ideally located between Bayeux (historic town of 15000 inhabitants) and the Landing Beaches, 2 km away from Bayeux, 21 km away from Caen and it memorial, 15 km away from Omaha Beach cemetery. The Chateau de la Ferriere opens its 5 bedrooms to national and international travelers. The owners Pietro Chiapponi and Geoffroy de Ville d'Avray welcome you in their home, with unconventional chic. The vast bedrooms and the drawing rooms, filled with family inherited furniture as well as "coups de coeur" found in Italian or French flea markets by owners, open to magnificent views over the unspoiled nature around. With its five bedrooms, its private lounge and its large park, Chateau de la Ferrière can be your "family House" for a few days. Feel at home, between a walk on the beach and a visit to a museum. After running in the park, or playing golf at Port-en-Bessin, come back on the terrace for a drink. Pietro and Geoffroy won't cook for you... But they will book a table for you in one of the delicious restaurants around if you wish.

A delightful venue and a great base from which to explore the Normandy area. Geoffrey is a perfect host and really looked after us in terms of local restaurant recommendations, taxis etc. Hopefully we’ll be back sometime in the future.

This place is well-situated for trips to Normandy D-Day beaches or a day trip to Mont Saint Michel. It is sort like staying in a small art museum, only with a very friendly and accommodating host (Geoffrey) and friendly dogs to great you as you come and go. Geoffrey knows all the restaurant owners, so he offers to get us reservations at nice restaurants, with a view of the ocean, terrific food, etc. Breakfast is immense and amazing. Which is convenient since we often had to skip lunch while on the road to see museums, beaches, churches, etc. When you come back from a long day of site seeing, a bottle of Calvados and tiny glasses waits for you in the sitting room to help you slip into bedtime. Our bathroom was bigger than some of the hotel rooms I have stayed in Paris. Geoffrey is a genuinely nice person and treats his guests like friends

Staying here is living like 19th century royalty but with electricity, wifi, and a really nice bathroom. The chateau is exquisite, full of beautiful antiques and the owners and staff take obvious (and well-deserved) pride in running a first-class establishment with wonderful little surprises (like fresh flowers and apertifs) for the guests. The breakfast is excellent and served in a fabulous room. I don't know if a will ever stay in another bed and breakfast that will measure up to this experience.

We lucked into château de la Ferriere! This place has been brought back with some TLC. The bathroom in the Blue room is awesome, big soaking tub, rain shower and Hermès products. The rounds make wonderful visits. I wish I had been married here. Our bed was so snuggly, with a water fountain trickling outside I slept so well.

Wonderful owners and staff make the visit here memorable. They took care of our dinner recommendations and reservations and taxi arrangements. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms are beautifully restored and the grounds are amazing. The Chateau dates back to the 18th century and was a HQ for a time for Rommel. A short ride outside of Bayeux but worth the travel. Only a few rooms for guests which made the stay personal and quiet.
