“Idyllic setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

The drive up the gravel pathway to the Chateau will take your breath away. Beautifully manicured lush green grass, fragrant roses, lilies, and assorted bushes and mature trees are intersected by a wide sparkling waterway with swans, ducks, water lilies and sleek plump fish directly in front of the Chateau. It is hard to imagine anything more idyllic. The small yet beautifully appointed dining room is the perfect spot for a feast of gastronomic delights all artfully and deliciously prepared for you. The menu is somewhat limited, but the quality is magnificent. Breakfast is served in a separate location overlooking the side yards. It is a buffet style somewhat small in scope but again, very tasty and much easier than trekking out in the morning. If you are so inclined though, there are many delicious restaurants, cafe's and bakeries to choose from. Our room was large and very comfortable with an adjoining room for our daughter that allowed us both access to the bathroom through separate doors. We found the staff most helpful and the owner particularly so. We expressed the desire to go horseback riding and she took it upon herself to make a number of inquiries until she was able to procure for us suitable arrangements with Cherokee stables nearby. We had a fantastic time and never would have found them had it not been for the owner of the Chateau Bellefontaine.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the main house overlooking the water. We were in room 4 on the 2nd floor.

Hotel and grounds were very nice. Don't get the breakfast; it's overpriced coffee and croissants, and very little else. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff did not speak English. It is somewhat outside of town, but I later found out that it was only a short walk into town. We had to leave very early on the day of departure, and arranged with the desk to have a taxi there at 6:15am. When we came down to the lobby at 6:15am, no one was there and the front door was locked from the inside. No one had bothered to tell us that the staff is not there early, and that my room key would open the front door. Finally figured it out ourselves, but the taxi didn't arrive at the arranged time. Started walking to the train station (about 1 km away), dragging our luggage. Taxi showed up when we got to the station. All in all, not a terribly bad experience.

We stayed here for 3 nights with my elderly grandparents. The rooms were very well appointed and newly decorated with lovely views over the grounds. Breakfast was pleasant as were drinks in the gardens in the sunshine.

This is a lovely place to stay for couples and families. It is very welcoming and perfectly situated, not far from Bayeux and the historic sites, the war memorials and the DDay landing beaches.

Chateau and grounds were once elegant, but now rather dowdy. Stayed in new annex where spaces are large and seemingly chic but layout is awkward and not practical. Upstairs bedroom has bath with no toilet and large windows exposed to parking lot. Breakfast weak,food not fresh. Staff gruff and unfriendly. Internet barely works and is rationed.
