Directions from Caen

The ferry arrives at the port of Ouistreham which is a suburb of Caen (about 20 kms from the centre).

Firstly follow signs to Caen; there is only one main road out of Ouistreham and it leads inland towards Caen and the Peripherique around Caen.

Follow signs to Rennes - this will take you onto the peripherique (ring road), and get you going the right way around it, and get you off it at the right exit, the A84 Autoroute.

Then you stay on the A84 following signs to Mont St Michel and Rennes until exit number 37 to Villedieu/Gavray/Granville.

Just after this exit there are 3 successive roundabouts:

First - follow Villedieu/Gavray/Granville

Second - follow Gavray/Villedieu

Third - follow Gavray/Coutances

then be careful because you have to turn right after about 20 meters (before the white house).

Now you stay on that road until the next T-junction. But on the way be careful because that is a very dangerous narrow bridge. At the T-junction turn right onto the D41 to La Lande D Airou. Now it s very easy as you stay on the D41 until Les Chambres. Just before you arrive at Les Chambres you will come to a crossroad called Le Grippon. Continue straight over following the signs to Les Chambres.

As you go through the village of Les Chambres and start to come out again look out for the first turning 500 metres after the church. You will see a sign for Chateau de la Baudonniere. Continue along this narrow country lane (D231) for about 1 mile until you come to white wooden fencing on your left. Pass the La Baudonniere farm on your left and our drive is the next turning on the left.

If you have any problems just call 0033 233 60 46 95 and speak to a member of the Chateau team.
