“Out of the way gem”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Chateau de Launay is welcoming and friendly. The owners go out of their way to assist guests by making dinner reservations and offering local information. Do not be concerned when your GPS says the address can not be found. The address is 5 Rue Ecoles; the GPS will only accept 2. Just follow the road until you see the sign for the Chateau. Breakfast is marvelous.

We stayed in the Chateau de Launay for 2 nights during Easter time. From the moment we arrived at the place, we were very impressed. The place is based in a beautiful rural quiet location yet still close enough to all attractions and lovely towns such as Cambremer. We felt very welcome by Mark & Vallerie (and their puppy), who did everything to make us feel comfortable. They were always there when we needed to ask anything and gave us plenty of tips to plan our days.
Breakfast was also great, with so much variety of food and fresh bread from bakery every morning. The coffee was also great and our little boy appreciated the warm milk as well as the attention received by his hosts.
Wonderful! We would definitely recommend this place!

You can be sure of a very warm & friendly reception at this special small, exclusive b & b located in a chateau which we understood to have probably been an old hunting lodge. The rooms were well appointed and we particularly liked the mods cons in the the modern, nicely tiled bathrooms. On the evening of our arrival we were made to feel really at home by the host and got some great recommendations to eat, there being nothing on the premises of course. Parking was not an issue at all. As we were the only guests we enjoyed an exclusive, candle lit breakfast and our host was able to share further tips on visiting a Calvados making facility in the vicinity. Our youngest member of the party was relieved to have wlan for that essential internet access required both most kids under the age of 80 nowadays. He made up for the lack of desk in the room by putting his lap top to its rightful use - on his lap.
Certainly a great place & thoroughly recommended, particularly now that the owners have added a signpost to help find the place :-)

We had a perfect stay at this B&B while exploring Normandy for a week! It has been a pleasure to be heading back to this wonderful place which is nicely situated in the French countryside.
Each morning a great breakfast from our excellent host Mark.
We had the pleasure to stay in the "Aubergine room" Very beautiful and with a comfortable and modern bathroom.

We can highly recommend Chateau de Launay and we would love to revisit this place at some point in time.

In the middle of the fields of the rich Normandy, just near the beautiful "pays d'Auge" with its wellkwnown stud farms and a so natural landscape, not very far of the highway, this little castle is offering many advantages : location, perfect tranquillity, authenticity of a XIXth century renovated mansion. With our friends, we reserved the two available rooms, (a third should be ready next year), very confortable ones, simply decorated, equiped with a modern bathroom. The owners, a Hollander and his french wife, are very kind and helpful. The breakfast was served in a nice room downstairs with a fire, red fresh roses on the table... With tea, coffee from the expresso machine, homemade marmelades, ham and cheese, baguette and croissants, the breakfast was good and solid. Well, a nice and pleasant stay. At last, the swiming pool, beyond the house, is available in summer.

Mark was a wonderful host, helping us to find the place, welcoming us, providing some intersting local history and serving a scuptious breakfast. The home and grounds are spectacular and a perfect backdrop for wonderful photographs.

I travelled with my husband and we stayed here as a base to go around Cambremer and do some cider tasting in the area. Its located about 10 minutes from the town centre. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and beautifully renovated. Mark was a very helpful host, and happy to give us info on places to eat and visit in the area. Breakfast was great - lots of variety and fresh home cooked food. I would definitely recommend Chateau de Launay, I only wish I had stayed here longer.
