CHÂTEAU ISLE MARIE:
Isle Marie is a unique venue for any type of retreats, special events, weddings & private parties.
For most of the year our main 12th century castle is functioning as a Coliving & Coworking for people working remotely (link to the Coliving website here), however the entire property is available to be privatised for groups during certain weeks of the year.
For an individual stay we provide fully equipped independent apartments located in our beautiful 17th century Mansion Louis XIV, overlooking the castle.
Owned by the same family for 800 years, this beautiful property survived a number of invasions, occupations and other major historical events. A place that is constantly reinventing itself to survive and thrive in this ever changing world.
THE BEST OF NORMANDY
Château de L’isle Marie is the hidden gem of Normandy. It will amaze your guests with an authentic castle setting in a friendly and easy-going atmosphere.
It offers the complete privacy of an 80-acres private park and it magically turns into an island every winter when the marshes around it overflow, creating the most exquisite views from the bedrooms.
With a capacity to accommodate 35 guests, incredibly beautiful indoors & outdoor spaces, a large and fully equipped event / yoga room, every retreat or special event becomes an unforgettable experience.
Mansion Louis XIV offers fully equipped and comfortable apartments with view over the main castle
