Chateau de Gratot reviews
We walked from Countances center to the Chateau one lovely morning. While the walk itself isn't particularly lovely, the Chateau is. It was never a fortified castle, being built in more stable times..... more »
An easy trip from Coutances. Being beautifully restored by the community with a fascinating history and a fairy tale to boot. Well worth the minimal entrance fee more »
What a beautiful place. Though we have been coming to Normandy for almost 20 years, we hadn't been here before. Informative laminated booklet, emaculately kept grounds and inexpensive (4€ adult). If this place were in England you'd be paying over £10 per adult and extra for parking. Well, well worth a visit. We will be back.
We visited by chance on a day when sculptures (and artists) were on display. We spent a lively 2 hours wandering around the castle and sculpture display. And home made cakes and tergoules as well. A great day
