I hesitated before I made this booking. The location was perfect, and everything looked so beautiful in the photos, but there were no reviews, and I usually rely heavily on reviews when I rent on VRBO. I decided to take a chance. When we entered the long drive and saw this stately chateau come into view, I knew I had made the right decision. Our accommodations were in the stable outbuilding, behind the chateau. Very elegant surroundings. As with many converted spaces, room layouts aren't as perfect as we would like. The bed in the alcove was at one end of the very spacious living room; the route from the upstairs bedroom took you through the downstairs bedroom to reach the living room. So there was not complete privacy. There is one full bathroom (shower) off the kitchen, and another half bath to serve the two bedrooms. Whatever accommodations we needed to make to the physical layout were well worth it for the privilege of staying in such splendid surroundings. There is WIFI (or "weefee" as the French call it) available next to the chateau, so you need to walk outside to use that. This is a very rural area, and restaurants are not plentiful. We found it best to eat a main meal during the day while we were touring, and enjoy a light meal at home in the evenings. Several local supermarkets offer a superb variety of prepared foods. If your goal is to explore the Normandy beaches, Mt. St Michel, Bayeux, and the other treasures of the Cotentin Peninsula, you could not be better situated. The owners of Chateau de Pont-Rilly were extremely gracious to us in every respect. We were able to overcome our language barriers. M. Roucheray, the owner, suggested some wonderful areas to explore that were off the beaten path on the Route de Caps, and we enjoyed that tremendously. I highly recommend Chateau de Pont-Rilly, and look forward to a return visit there someday.
