The chateau at Nacqueville

Published on November 6, 2015 by Chris Robinson

The chateau is tucked away in a green and coastal valley just 15 minutes west of Cherbourg in Normandy. Construction started in 1510 and originally a high wall surrounded it. The wall was demolished in the 18th and 19th centuries to reveal the splendour of the chateau. The gatehouse still remains. In 1830 the gardens were developed with the help of an English landscape architect. The extensive grounds were filled with a mix of exotic shrubs, azaleas, hydrangeas and rhododendrons. although it suffered damage in the 20th century, it has been lovingly restored and is open to the public.

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.
