Romantic countryside chateau. Enjoy nature walks, horseback riding, luxurious spa, and outdoor activities. Perfect for the adventurous traveller who wants to be pampered.
Situated in the countryside near Caen, the main city of the Calvados region of Normandy, the Chateau de la Pommeraye is the height of romance. Owner Alexandre has revitalized the property (originally built in the 12th century) to include parquet flooring, gorgeous bannisters and antique furniture reminiscent of the grand palaces of France.
Spend a day lounging in bed and strolling in the gardens or venture into nature to try archery, pony trekking, paragliding, or a number of other outdoor activities for adventure-seekers. Relax in the spa Monday-Saturday (except Wednesday) at the end of the day, or reserve a place for dinner in the traditional dining room.
