Champ-de-Bataille Manor

The chateau of Champ de Bataille, built by Alexandre de Créqui in the 17C, was home to the Harcourt family before it was plundered in 1795. In the 20C, it was successively a hospital, a prisoner-of-war camp and a women's prison. Today its former splendour has been restored. Superbly appointed, its rooms showcase the splendid furniture and art collections of its owner, interior architect Jacques Garcia, while outdoors an immaculate formal garden surrounds the palace.

Our reports

Champ de Bataille, grand style

Jacques Garcia is one of the decorators most in demand worldwide. He has taken care, inter alia, of the decoration of Hotel Costes, Le Fouquet's and the Romantic Life Museum in Paris... Opening for us the doors of his splendid chateau in Normandy, a total work of art, this visual artist explains his interpretation of the French 17th and 18th centuries.

Champ de Bataille, a new take on Le Nôtre

A French Baroque masterpiece, the Chateau du Champ de Bataille needed a worthy setting. Geometrical gardens were required to prolong the architectural lines, in great French tradition, with immense perspectives and large pools. Jacques Garcia, owner of the chateau, shows us round this Pharaonic site where work started in 1993.
