The Chateau features a heated pool, orangery and a tennis court along with 29 light and bright spacious bedrooms, which are all decorated in neutral tones with pastel shades, providing a cosy and romantic atmosphere. Some feature wood panelling and marble fireplaces whereas others are adorned with traditional, decorative wallpaper. The history of the chateau dates back to the 18th Century, where it was originally a hemp farm and then a breeding farm for foals. The chateau was then occupied by the Germans during World War II, and then the Americans after the D-Day landings. After a detailed renovation in 1988, the chateau was restored to be the romantic hotel which stands today.
As well as being close by to Omaha beach there are also a range of other activities in the area including Jeeps, Quads, Buggies, horse riding, hiking, sailing and golf.
