A super lovely place to end our holiday!

We stayed at the Chateau for two nights in September of 2018 and the experience was lovely. La Pommeraye is a beautiful French Manor house, out in the Swiss Normandy countryside. The decoration of the house was stunning with art work comfort. The owner was a great host and you got a feeling of being his guest instead of being in a hotel. Very recommended, peaceful luxury, you will not regret it!

We stayed at this exquisite property for three nights. The accommodations and the architecture were exquisite; the service was impeccable, and the food warranted the highest Michelin rating. Proprietor and gourmand chef, Alexandre Boudnikoff, made our time there one of the best experiences we have ever had anywhere in the world and we would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a refined experience in a serene country setting.

Stunning location, beautifully restored chateau. We had the most marvellous stay in sumptuous rooms. The immaculate accommodation was matched by the friendly welcome. Highly recommended. Already planning a return visit.

We had a wonderful stay at Chateau de la Pommeraye. The chateau is beautifully renovated and decorated - it is clear a lot of love has been put into it. The bathtub in our room was enormous and the perfect way to end a long day touring Mont St. Michel and Granville. Alexandre recommended great restaurants and the breakfasts were delicious, but our favorite meal was the late dinner Alexandre made us after we were delayed due to traffic on our way from Paris to the chateau. Highly recommend.

Augustusburg Palace

Augustusburg Palace represents one of the first examples of Rococo creations in Germany. For the Cologne elector and archbishop Clemens August of the House of Wittelsbach it was the favourite residence. In 1725 the Westphalian architect Johann Conrad Schlaun was commissioned by Clemens August to begin the construction of the palace on the ruins of a medieval moated castle.

In 1728, the Bavarian court architect François de Cuvilliés took over and made the palace into one of the most glorious residences of its time. Until its completion in 1768, numerous outstanding artists of European renown contributed to its beauty. A prime example of the calibre of artists employed here is Balthasar Neumann, who created the design for the magnificent staircase, an enchanting creation full of dynamism and elegance. The magical interplay of architecture, sculpture, painting and garden design made the Brühl Palaces a masterpiece of German Rococo.

UNESCO honoured history and present of the Rococo Palaces by inscribing Augustusburg Palace – together with Falkenlust Palace and their extensive gardens – on the World Heritage List in 1984. From 1949 onwards, Augustusburg Palace was used for representative purposes by the German Federal President and the Federal Government for many decades.

In 1728, Dominique Girard designed the palace gardens according to French models. Owing to constant renovation and care, it is today one of the most authentic examples of 18th century garden design in Europe. Next to the Baroque gardens, Peter Joseph Lenné redesigned the forested areas based on English landscaping models. Today it is a wonderful place to have a walk.
