Hotel Report

Why Stay At Chateau de Canisy

Live like French aristocracy at this 14-suite chateau in Normandy, France, surrounded by 750 acres of gardens and woodland.

The Scoop

Normandy's Chateau de Canisy boasts quite a pedigree: Marie Antoinette, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Napoleon Bonaparte were friends and relatives of the Kergorlay family, an aristocratic clan who have owned the chateau for more than 400 years. Now, parts of the original 1066 house remain, bolstered by considerable renovations that also retained many of the 16th-century additions. Original purple-hued stones are set in window and door frames, and antique furnishings and family portraits are found in each of the 14 suites. By day, explore the estate's 750 acres on horseback or by carriage, passing pristine gardens and lakeside spots as you go; at night, toast your good fortune over a glass of Normandy's traditional apple brandy, Calvados, stored in the castle cellars.

Insider Tips

Normandy is filled with farms, and the estate itself produces fruit, vegetables, dairy, and poultry. Ask the concierge to arrange an on-site tour.

Don't miss the arcade room, which is lined with photographs taken by singer-songwriter Joan Baez, a family friend of the estate's Comte and Comtesse.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Caen Carpiquet Airport (CFR) which is approximately 50 miles from the chateau. Anticipate about 60 minutes of travel time.
