We arrived on a very hot August afternoon, last week of school holidays. Had a lovely welcome and tour of the site from Zoe. The chateau is gorgeous! and first impressions were of a friendly, well maintained, spacious site in lovely surroundings. Owners Zoe and Paul, were on hand to answer questions when needed.

Lots of space in the chateau's gardens for all the tents and they only take a limited number (so pre-book) - there are shady and sunny pitches although you can't pick in advance which pitch as they're not marked. The views across the animal enclosures and surrounding landscapes were lovely.

After pitching it was a wonderful to take a dip in the natural pool which was popular with the campers - it has stone sides and floor and steps leading in so no mud between my toes. The pool had and a dinghy and floats for use too. , there was also a hot tub adjacent for chilling out in. A nice touch is an outdoor shower adjacent to the pool which provided a lovely alternative to the ones indoors, and provided nice hot water to wash under.

The showers and loos are great and kept clean. There is ample fridge freezer space for food and coolblocks. Lots of washing up space too. There were fire pits for use too. There was a good little honestly shop in one of the barns for essentials (although it doesn't sell wine/beer - so stock up if you need it).

A must is the evenings they serve evening meals in the big barn (3x weekly) which is a lovely social event and reasonably priced - bring a bottle and join in!

Owners walked around the site each day to take bread and Croissant orders which were delivered by the 'bread fairy' to our tent each morning - lovely!

The chateau is located in a lovely quiet hamlet out of the way, yet a short drive (5 minute or so)in to Insigny-sur-mer which is a lovely small town with a great supermarket, and which joins a direct route to cherbourg (40 minute drive).

Whilst there we visited the a landing beach and memorial, we planned to visit Bayeaux but opted out in favour of chilling in the pool at the chateau. It was our last site of the holiday and a great place to unwind - we had such a relaxing and memorable time. Would visit again and highly recommend.

We have just returned from a week at Chateau Monfreville and 2 things were clear. We would have happily stayed for the entire summer and it is without doubt the best campsite we have ever been to. The facilities are superb with lovely showers, fridges, freezers (including a drinks fridge!) phone charging points, games room, honesty shop and the chateau and grounds are beautiful. The fact you can borrow buckets/ spades/ balls etc was great for travelling light. My children had endless hours of fun on the rope swing/ feeding the pigs and sheep and to end each day with a swim and hot tub was pure bliss. The moules/ frites and pizza nights in the barn was great fun. The only downside was given we had croissants and bread delivered to our tent by Paul every morning I now need to go on a serious diet! We love Normandy and are normally too busy to just relax at the campsite but it is such a wonderful place and my kids did not want to go out we had quite a few days just lazing around the tent. We camp 4or 5 times a year and never go back to the same place. But we are already planning for next year. Thanks so much Paul & Zoe.

Heavenly place, peaceful, spacious, beautiful, everything we needed. Lovely hosts who bring round

Croissants and fresh baguettes at breakfast, practical and v useful honesty shop, charming animals including hens, cats, ponies, donkey and 2 friendly pigs. Loos, washing up facilities and showers done in characterful vintage style. Hot tub and natural filtered swimming pond.

My wife and I have just returned from our second visit to the Château. It was just as perfect as we remember from last year and I am not sure it's possible to improve on perfection but Paul and Zoe the owners have added even more little gems to their site. The new 'old' wood burning pizza oven makes probably the best pizza you could find, Pizza Hut take note.

The level of service is discrete but first class and of a far superior standard than any other campsite we have visited over our many years of camping. To sum up I would score the site 10/10 only because there isn't an eleven. A country campsite with all the modern facilities to make a perfect holiday.

This is one of my favourite places in the world! We're going back again this summer for the 3rd time.

It's a beautiful location, you're in a really good position to explore Normandy & there's plenty to visit in the local area, but the site is peaceful and quiet

We're always made to feel so welcome that it feels like we're going to visit old friends. All the little extras make this feel really special, we can pre-order fresh bread and pastries from the boulangerie for delivery each morning, there are fresh home laid eggs and home-made jams in the honesty shop along with all the other necessities, at the weekly moule frites night campers can sit down and eat a delicious meal together. Our children loved visiting the animals & the swimming pond is lovely (on a sunny day!).

The site is beautifully kept and all the facilities are lovely. The shower rooms in the basement of the chateau are really nicely done & kept nice and clean. There is a fridge & a microwave we could use (so useful last year for warming baby food & sterilising baby bottles!).

There are a limited number of camping pitches, which means the site never feels crowded and you're not queueing for ages for the facilities. Cars are kept to the car park and not allowed on the campsite, which makes it safer for the children running around and were not disturbed by cars coming and going.

The only negative of visiting this campsite is that it has ruined all other campsites for us. No one else ever quite measures up to the high standards we see here.

A wonderful campsite, relaxed but well-run. It has many delightful aspects, including the castle, the view, the animals, the pastries delivered to the tent, the natural swimming pond, and the hot tub. We visited at the end of August but all the facilities were still well maintained and clean. The location is good for exploring the area, close enough to main roads to make getting places easy but far enough from them to feel like you're away from it all. All the signs around the site are in English, so you don't have the full-immersion French experience if that's what you want though.
