Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Basse-Normandie / Calvados / Balleroy / Chateau de Balleroy
Built in 1631, Chateau de Balleroy is a charming château that has undergone extensive restoration and refurbishment. Guided tours show you the richly furnished interiors. Entering the château, you encounter a dramatic innovation by Mansart--the suspended staircase. Held in place by a keystone at its uppermost level, the stairs and balustrades are supported by a series of vaulting with no supporting pillars.
One of the best and most memorable features waits in the outer courtyard, where you can explore the International Balloon Museum. A collection of pictures, miniatures, collectables, documents, scale models, and really unusual objects trace the history of ballooning from its origins with the Montgolfier brothers right up to the present day.
There's also a shop with a choice of gifts and memorabilia as well as a tea room. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Chateau de Balleroy by using our Balleroy holiday planner.
Chateau de Balleroy reviews
One of the most beautiful Chateaus in France!!! Serene, historical, romantic!!!! We just loved our stay!!! more »
If you feel like you had your fair share of second world war this is a nice thing to see in the area. Beautiful castle and nice park that is perfect for a walk. We did not do the tour of the castle... more »
Interesting castle. It is a bit smaller than it looks. The new private owners had to redecorate it. Surprisingly enough, they chose to use hot air balloons as main theme. The visit was only possible with a tour in French and a booklet in English. If you are in the area, it is worth the visit
A really wonderful castle.. you must visit.
