I stayed at Servigny for a week with a group of 12 women. We went with high expectations. Our experiences exceeded our expectations. The Chateau is beautiful. The entire place is welcoming, elegant and comfortable. The grounds were far more expansive then we had envisioned, and we so enjoyed exploring! Servigny was a perfect base from which to take in the wonders of Normandy, but it is important to allow plenty of time to soak in all that the Chateau de Servigny offers.
A magical Normandy Chateau
I treated my extended family to a week at Ch. de Servigny to celebrate my wife's birthday. The property looked wonderful on the website and the reality exceeded our high expectations. For a start the owner and the housekeeper were very helpful and accommodating and the professional Chef recommended by the owners is superb. The Chateau is very child friendly with a good size pool kept at a minimum of 26* and child secure, hard tennis court and numerous bikes of all sizes.
There are extensive grounds to explore including cycle paths in the woods. There is even a stone built child's playhouse complete with tower.
There is plenty for the history enthusiast, the house was used as US headquarters following the Utah beach landings and was the venue for the first formal German surrender treaty.
The history of the owning family is also fascinating and well documented in the Chateau. There are links to the French royal court and also to several Grand Cru Bordeaux wines.
For those who like to explore there is more than enough with the whole of the D-day landing area and lower Normandy.
Perhaps the secret of this chateau was a clever combination of the elegance of a home steeped in history with an informality so that we weren't constantly on edge as 8 small children had the holiday of a lifetime.
Our thanks to the De Pontac family and the lovely Francoise.
Stunning. Breathtakingly beautiful
Kids wanted to snapchat it the second they saw it. A fairytale chateau but everything worked beautifully - all rooms with en suites. Hot water strong and never ran out. Classical decor. Typically French. Walking distance to two fabulous rustic restaurants. Long bike rides every day and tennis and swimming. Interesting day trips to D Day beaches and Bayeux and coastal walks. Really the perfect holiday in every way. The owner and housekeeper incredibly helpful and the in house chef service fantastic.
The chateau is beautiful!
We arrived on Sunday and Françoise was waiting for us with her welcoming smile and a fresh fruit basket and wine, a gift from Arnaud, the owner of the Chateau. The rooms are all beautifully decorated with updated bathrooms. The grounds are impeccable and very peaceful. The breeze blowing the leaves of the majestic trees on the grounds. Jean Jacque, the Gardner, works hard every day attending to everything green to make sure the grounds are happy. We had a pleasure of seeing the room where the Cherbourg treaty was signed and it’s hard not to be affected by the fact that this chateau played such an important role in the WW2. Unfortunately, the weather did not permit the use of the pool, but it looked very inviting, clean and had a beautiful new cover. To our surprise there was an indoor ping pong table which we used almost daily for fun matches.
There are plenty of good restaurants within a short driving distance. The plethora of information about the historical sites, memorials, close by attractions, restaurants activities and entertainment is well displayed on the welcoming tables of the Chateau.
The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms have great showers and baths. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. For couple of nights we took advantage of Gwenelle’s cooking. The dinners were delicious and it’s just so much fun to stay home in the Chateau and be taking care of in “French” style. Normandy is very relaxed and welcoming and a beautiful countryside.
We cherished the moments we spent in the Chateau and strolling the beautiful grounds. Created lots of beautiful memories and we hope to return. Thank you Arnaud for all your help and hospitality. Best wishes from USA
It has been a real pleasure to welcome Joaquin and Eva at Servigny. We loved to receive such hosts , encouraging our efforts to maintain and improve the quality of our family Château.
A warm and great thank you to them !
Exceeded our expectations.
This beautiful chateau exceeded our very high expectations. It's in a great location, close to much to do and see, and we were extremely well looked after by all.
A perfect stay at a historic Chateau
The pictures, though beautiful, do not do this property justice. Both the house and the stay far exceeded our expectations. Though we rent vacation homes regularly, we never worked with this website. Everything worked out well. We received great communication through the website during booking, and then timely and to-the point responses from the owner of the Chateau, patiently answering my many questions. We were also grateful to receive a very detailed and well-prepared package with travel information, directions, and recommendations regarding sightseeing and good restaurants. A beautiful fruit basket was also waiting for us as a welcome gift from the owner (it didn't have a card, so there was some confusion initially, but we figured it out). The Chateau is perfectly located near picturesque town of Valognes (with a fabulous farmers' market, so close - less than a mile - that our girls rode their bikes to the market!). A lot of various sightseeing suggestions were provided at the house. The house is beautifully restored and maintained, with amazing history well documented and preserved. We were grateful to be shown the historic room where the Treaty was signed, with photos and documents. The park surrounding the Chateau is huge, very well taken care of, and a great place to ride bicycles (many were provided, in perfect working order). There is also a giant room with table tennis and a well-maintained outdoor tennis court and a beautiful heated outdoor pool. Though not included with the rental, we have asked for breakfasts and dinners, and they were provided and served (don't miss an opportunity to have a dinner or two at the Chateau), we also went to the restaurants the owners recommended, all spot-on. The closest one was our favorite (3 minute walk, very accommodating and great food!). We bought a lot of fresh food at the market, so we also cooked at home some nights. The kitchen is well equipped, there is everything one might need. We also used the washer and drier, all working perfectly. More on housekeeping: the house provides the biggest, plushest and highest quality towels I have seen in a while. Keys, maps, all necessities were provided. We enjoyed the library, the music room, and the fact that one of our guests, an art history professor, discovered that the Chateau was used as an inspiration for a much-discussed XIX century romantic novel. Highly recommend this property.
