About this property

Set in the heart of Normandy, if you and your pooch want a fabulous base for exploring one of France’s most historic regions, Cockerel Fontaine at Le Château de la Motte is ideal. Situated in one of the outbuildings, Cockerel Fontaine was the traditional winter quarters of the château owners. Featuring elegant wall paintings and Louis XVI fireplaces, this gîte is perfect for couples or small families, and offers plenty of space for both short and long-haul stays. Your furry friend can spend their days roaming around the lake and gardens, in the company of the resident Spaniels, of course!

Dine with Your Dog

A self-catering property, Cockerel Fontaine has a fully-equipped kitchen with a lovely dining area. In the kitchen, you’ll find an integrated fan oven, microwave and four-ring electric ceramic hob, as well as a dishwasher and fridge. There is also an electric coffee machine, kettle, toaster and juicer – plus all the usual pots, pans, glasses and cutlery. The owners of Cockerel Fontaine will provide a welcome pack of local and homemade goodies, and are happy to go shopping for you prior to your stay if there are specific foodstuffs you need. France is super dog-friendly so if you don’t fancy cooking and wish to try some of the local cuisine, there are lots of restaurants in the villages nearby where your pooch can join you. However, if your furry friend would prefer to hang out with their Spaniel hosts, the owners of the chateau provide a dog-sitting service.

Bow wow factor

Has to be the six resident Spaniels! You’ll find them roaming the grounds and they’re happy to play with furry guests.
