“Heaven on Earth!”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Chateau de Tocqueville is absolutely heaven. My husband and I have traveled extensively all over Europe and the US. Chateau de Tocqueville ties for first place in all the places we have stayed. The grounds are gorgeous, the Chateau beautiful, elegant and comfortable, and the reception was warm, personal and friendly. I started most mornings with a run from the Chateau down through the town of Tocqueville. It was a peaceful and beautiful way to begin the day. From there we would jump in the car and drive to see the amazing historical sites in Normandy.

Chateau de Tocqueville is located in the gorgeous countryside. After driving through a charming little community, you can easily access the interstates. The drive is beautiful. You'll drive by the sea, wildlife and farm land. I've never seen happier cows than the ones we drove by on our daily treks to the historic sites.

We returned each evening to enjoy a romantic dinner next to the roaring fireplace. We have rented apartments and homes all over Europe. None have a kitchen as well equipped as Chateau de Tocqueville. They have every type of device or kitchen tool a gourmet chef could want. I was immensely excited to find herbs and spices in the cabinets as well. They have table linens and nice dishes to serve up the food. For larger groups, there is a lovely dining table that can seat many people. Since my husband and I were alone, we opted to dine on the comfy couches next to the fire.

The lush farmland in the area results in gorgeous produce and vegetables. There are also many great restaurants in the region. As a foodie, I had a difficult time deciding if I wanted a romantic night in at the Chateau with my own home-cooked meal, or a delightful fun dinner at one of the delicious community restaurants.

Our travels in Normandy and our stay at the Chateau rank as one of my favorites trips of all time. We will definitely be back. We have invited friends to join us next year and look forward to seeing their delighted faces as they explore the chateau, roam the grounds and curl up with a great book next to the fireplace.

“Authentic and elegant base to explore Normandy”

I was the unofficial guide for two couples who wanted to visit parts of Normandy they did not know. The Chateau's guest wing is beautifully furnished, with the most fabulous bathrooms. There is a spacious sitting room and a large chimney place. It is in the countryside, quiet, but very close to the charming harbor of Barfleur. There is easy access to great beaches for walking or swimming depending on the season.
There is a lift, or elevator!
