  • Just 15 minutes from Bayeux and the D-Day Landing beaches

The Château is on the doorstep of Bayeux and the D-Day Landing beaches and is located only ten minutes’ drive from the picturesque seaside town of Courselles-sur-Mer with its harbour and sandy beaches. It's the perfect base for groups to enjoy the many excursions and educational experiences on offer in this historical area. 
 
As well as being close to numerous excursions, groups benefit from staying in the beautiful countryside of Normandy within a safe and secure hamlet of Colombiers-sur-Seulles.
 
Most of our schools prefer the shorter ferry or Eurotunnel journey from Dover to Calais. It is then 4 hours on the coach to the Château du Baffy. The outbound and return journey from port to the Château du Baffy is usually broken up by a coach stop, for example in the beautiful town of Honfleur or a chocolate factory. Travel from other ferry ports is an option depending on your UK location. The Château is 25 minutes from Caen, 1 hour from Le Havre and 1 hour 30 minutes from Cherbourg. Speak to one of our knowledgeable travel advisors who will guide you through the best options for your school group.
