Why did you settle in this region, in this place and not elsewhere ?
We were looking for an old country house not too far from Paris and, by chance when walking past an estate agent, we saw pictures of Pont-Rilly located 350 km from Paris. During the viewing, we immediately fell in love with the chateau although it was in very bad condition. We dedicated twenty years of our life to restoring it and we are very happy to have done so. Since then, we have left Paris and are living here permanently.
What can you offer people staying with you ?
We offer the opportunity to experience the refinement of 18th century combined with modern-day comfort. The quiet environment is perfect rest, only the chiming of the chapel and the cries of peacocks break the silence. The rooms still have their original decor - wooden paneling, fireplaces and parquet floors. Each room is furnished with antiques. Breakfast is served in the dining room where the flicker of the fire is reflected in the wonderful collection of copper utensils. The jams, yoghurt and other delicacies are homemade and the juices are freshly squeezed. There is also a cheese platter with specialties from Normandy.
