A word from our guests
“The perfect place to unwind and discover the delights of rural France”
I spent 10 days at Château Jonquay in May, the rooms were comfortable and spectacular, especially the large, well-stocked kitchen. The days ended perfectly, sitting outside with a glass of bubbly! The location is fabulous, just under two hours from Paris, but so close to Rouen, Deauville, Honfleur, Claude Monet’s Giverny Gardens and many more attractions to explore. The local village of Bourg-Achard has everything, beautiful fresh produce, the supermarket Carrefour and the exquisite Restaurant L’Amandier.
“The first thing I noticed is the glorious tranquility surrounding the Château, it’s so quiet and serene”
My second trip to Jonquay, loved it! This time we went exploring the neighbouring villages, had long lunches by the pool, enjoyed the fine food and cheeses this area has to offer. My room on the 1st floor had amazing view of the meadows, so relaxing! Jonquay has a great atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, can’t wait to go back!
“The local people in Bourg Achard were charming”
“Many thanks for providing our small group with a marvellous place to spend time together last week. We had never been to this part of Normandy before and found it to be delightful and we were able to mix our time at Château du Jonquay perfectly between the property and visiting the environs.” — Michael
“We adore it!”
“Well we’re all here and having an absolutely lovely time at your wonderful Château. And the weather, which was not so great at first, is now beautiful. We’ve been for a few little drives out and every time we start ooohing and aaahing over gorgeous houses we always end up by saying ‘nowhere near as lovely as OURS though!” — Munro family
“So many great memories”
Thanks again for your generous donation and all the assistance with our planning and bookings. Our dining experiences were memorable to say the least – L’Amandier, Gill and Sa Qua Na each sensational in their own way – while the day at the D-day beaches was incredibly moving. Our time at the Château itself has been a delight: meals of local produce and post-outing drinks of large proportions. So many great memories. — Simon
“What an amazing slice of paradise!”
Jane & Stephen, what an amazing slice of paradise! We had a wonderful stay and experienced most of your “favourite places” and restaurants. Also recommend Belle Isle sur Risle in Pont Audemer, for a special occasion – Scarlett
“Absolutely splendid time”
Thank you so much for a fabulous week at Jonquay! The 13 of us have had an absolutely splendid time and shall strongly recommend the stay to anyone! Visiting the D-day beaches was a definite highlight of the holiday in Normandy and a meal at L’Amandier to top it all off. Thank you again. – Georgia
“Grand old piece of history”
I so love Jonquay. This is our second stay too. We love the country lanes with tall wheat crops climbing the sides of the winding paths. We love the neighbouring houses, some crumbling, some rustic, others magnificent. We love the towns nearby, the restaurants (L’Amandier), the markets and the food. Above all we love Jonquay itself. Built in 1635, lovingly restored and maintained, she represents a grand old piece of history standing proud and tall. To stay here is an honour and a privilege to be savoured. Thank you for looking after this extraordinary piece of French heritage and making it available to lots of other people. It is truly wonderful, many thanks – Chris & Aileen.
