Location and travel

The Château is in a perfect location for quick access from the UK, giving you more time to explore and learn!


The Château is located only ten minutes’ drive from the picturesque seaside town of Courselles-sur-Mer with its yacht harbour and sandy beaches, and is also on the doorstep of Bayeux and the World War II landing beaches. It's the perfect base for groups to enjoy the wealth of excursions and educational experiences on offer in this historical area. 
 
You will find a number of local shops, bars, crêperies and weekly markets close by, plus groups benefit from staying in the beautiful countryside of Normandy, whilst also being only a short drive from the beaches.
 
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 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.
