Monfreville is a 4km drive to Isigny sur Mer where you will find a delightful port with supermarkets, restaurants, markets & cafes. The Chateau was commissioned almost a thousand years ago by William the Conqueror & was once home to Walt Disney’s family & then later occupied by German soldiers during WW2. The Chateau is steeped with history & central to the D Day Landing Beach of Omaha & The American Cemetery and Utah Beach, close to the villages of Sainte Mere Eglise & Sainte Marie du Mont. The medieval town of Bayeux is home to The British Cemetery & the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Mont St Michel, Monet’s Gardens, Honfleur & Paris are all great for a day’s adventure & for fun times there are miles & miles of golden sandy beaches making this a superb vacation for all ages. Normandy is known as the bread basket of France and you won't be disappointed. Isigny sur Mer is home to world class butter, cream and cheese. There is also a caramel factory producing all things gorgeous! Fish markets are open every morning and there is always a market on each day of the week. Chateau de Monfreville is a special retreat for all those that visit. There are plenty of cider farms in the area where you can go and taste the delights of Cider, Pommeau and Calvados.More
