Chateau de Saint-Paterne - At A Glance

Inviting Loire castle with shades of Normandy and the Med

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Owner Chares-Henry is the author of several recipe books, so expect food to drool over. Cooking at Château de Saint-Paterne is mostly creative interpretations of classic Mediterranean and Norman dishes such as torte de carottes and pintade à la normande (Norman guinea-fowl). Vegetables are sourced from the gardens and don’t get fresher. Dining is à deux on candlelit tables in the grand yet inviting family dining room.

Buffet breakfast (charged at 12 EUR) is served until 11am. 

Room service
Late risers can take breakfast in their room.

See & Do

See & Do
You’re on the cusp of Normandy and the Loire here, so well located for reaching the vineyards and chateaux of the Loire, or the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy – a real taste of wartime France. Mont Saint Michel is a bit of trip, but spectacularly worth it. If you simply want to chill, there’s a swimming pool, tennis courts, a nine hole golf course within walking  distance, or horse riding nearby.

Diary Dates
Join in the revelry at Granville Mardi Gras, with all-night partying and daytime fun. Mardi Gras itself is known as the ‘day of intrigue’, so don a mask and who knows who you might meet…

Moving and memorable D-Day Anniversary services are held around Caen and Bayeux.
