Chateau d'Emalleville is a beautiful 15th century manor that was rebuilt in 1720 and located in the Normandy region. It has guest rooms available for use, is close to brocante shops and charming little villages and proved to be a wonderful base for our brocante tour.
And each morning, we could walk out and catch beautiful vistas from any direction.
The Pigeonniere was darling and located next to the private salon and dining area where we had breakfast each morning.
The gardens were lovely and the weather was so warm it encouraged you to explore the grounds
You simply could not take a bad photo here. The vines were so beautiful and covered many of the brick structures on the grounds.
The rose gardens were in full bloom
The orchards were lovely
The pear espaliers were spectacular and my personal favorite.
and the pears were delicious too!
It also includes a private tennis court
and a swimming pool in the middle of the orchard, which is covered when it is not in use as you see in the photo here.
And a very cool 19th century renovated greenhouse.
The chateau is open all year, the guest rooms were reasonably priced and it was an amazing experience all the way around. It is a short train ride from Paris (about 1 hour), so very easy to navigate. We were very pleased with the accommodations and would absolutely stay here again. To be quite honest, we could have stayed longer and explored more villages and the beaches of Normandy...but we already had plans to spend several days in Paris, so I guess we'll have to come back and pick up where we left off!

We truly enjoyed our time here and are even more inspired and enchanted with the French countryside!
I always enjoy reading your comments and would love to know what you think of the chateau. Thanks for reading me!
