 Our Château hosts Sue & Steve were extremely friendly and welcoming throughout our stay.

Following a lovely cup of tea in their garden and a tour of the outbuildings we pitched up in front of The Château with a direct view of the gorgeous horses that they breed.

We were delighted to see a family of Coypeus during our stay.

A wonderfully peaceful site that we intend to return to.

 What a warm welcome from Sue and Steve. The kettle was on instantly and we were welcomed into their home. Sue even ran us to Aldi to get some food.

Hard pitch outside their front door with electric.

We had the use of the empty gite for toilet facilities.

Loved meeting this interesting couple

 Steve and Sue are the perfect hosts. Warm, friendly with a cup of tea on tap. We were treated as long lost friends, not customers.

The chateau, its grounds and outbuildings are gorgeous and steeped in history.

The grounds are immaculately kept and are also home to Sue's vast collection of beautiful ponies.

A short walk downhill takes you into town, where you will find everything you need and then some.

There is no noise at all overnight at the chateau and we slept the sleep of the dead.

Would we go back. Damn right we would!

Reviewer: Ggar10 1 review from this member

 Very friendly welcome at the chateau, very quiet site.

Thought we were going to get stuck in wet grass when we left, but got out eventually.

Site could use more hook up points & waste bins were not evident.

 Another wonderful 3 days stay with Sue and Steve.

This time we bought our grandchildren aged 10 and 14. They both enjoyed every minute because Sue and Steve went out of their way to keep them entertained.

Thank you once again for a great time, we will be back.

 Could not get a warmer welcome anywhere, we booked this site to be close to Caen as our ferry was very early, wished we’d booked for longer, what an idyllic place, it is about 30 minutes to the ferry.

Sue and Steve are so welcoming and anxious to please, it felt like staying with old friends. Stunning countryside views all around and the peace and quiet is therapeutic.

Short walk to the village, what a lovely place, good shops, bars and eating places. There is plenty to do in the area but that is for next time. Superb gites are on offer too. You will need your own toilet and shower.

We can’t wait to come back!

 Lovely spot, amazing views, walking distance of town, really friendly owners, nothing to fault. Just turn up and enjoy.

We were in our campervan but the gites are stunning, easy access from/to the ferry

 What a wonderful experience. Beautiful chateau with such interesting history back to 16th century. Two gites, beautifully renovated and tastefully and comfortably furnished. Sue and Steve can't do enough to make you welcome, so friendly. Caravans, motorhomes can hook up randomly in the beautiful grounds. There are rare breed highland ponies, which Sue breeds.

Omaha and Bayeux an hour away. Pretty villages and Clecy a quaint village by the river.

Every Saturday there is a typical French market in Aunay Sur Odon.

Can't wait to visit again

 Well, what can I say. It is not often you visit a campsite and come away with the feeling you've been visiting friends. Sue and Steve go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, be it a cuppa on arrival, the offer of a lift to lidl (as Sue was just off shopping), info on the local area or even hints on some good cheap wine!

The site is a working stud farm, rather than a formal campsite so everything is very laid back, which suited us perfectly.

Local town is 10 minutes walk away and has supermarkets, bistro, hotel and a nice market on a Saturday.

Stayed for two nights when heading south and another on the way home.

Looking forward to dropping in again when in the area (and hopefully take in one of their BBQ's, which sound like a great night).

 We can only reiterate what the previous reviewers have said about Chateau La Garenne, The welcome by Sue and Steve was great and made us feel relaxed and chilled out. Fantastic setting with the rolling hills in the distance it is hard to imagine that the area was the scene of heavy fighting during the battle for Normandy in 1944, although Steve did inform me that a German Panzer division had been billeted there. We look forward to staying there again next year.
