Dear Friends of
Château de l’Isle-Marie,
To our great regret we have to announce that the family has decided to close both our beautiful B&B in the château and the apartments in the manoir.

We are proud to have been the creators of one of the most special B&B’s in Normandy France and especially proud to have gotten involved in the ongoing commemoration of D-Day.

We have, over the years, received countless veterans and their families as well as interested visitors, as they make their pilgrimage to Normandy and we will proudly continue this work in our new venture.

We would be happy to help you with recommendations, just email us on our usual address :
Warm regards,

Dorothea de La Houssaye
   & Simon Rock de Besombes
