Explore the medieval castle at Gratot in Normandy

Published on April 25, 2015 by Chris Robinson

The chateau at Gratot was built in the 14th century. it was abandoned in the early 20th century although a restoration project is currently underway. You can climb to the top of both of these towers although the worn stone steps are testament to the many people who have climbed them over the centuries.

The chateau is open every day from 10am until 7pm and is just north of Coutances. Further information at www.chateaugratot.com

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
