You won’t find anything like it anywhere in the world. Owned by the same family for 800 years, after surviving numerous invasions, occupations, and other major historical events, it was recently renovated to accommodate remote workers from all over the world. While keeping the property's authenticity, the owners have succeeded in bringing comfort and modernity. The common areas of the castle are beautiful, very spacious, and welcoming. The following services and amenities are included:
- Grand living room with a cosy fireplace and many sofas.
- Dining room that can be used to eat or work.
- Coworking space is top notch with everything you need - office chairs, lots of desk space, coffee machine, video projector, library, printer, scanner.
- Two very well-equipped kitchens to cook whatever you want. We also love to promote common dinners to share!
- Immense private park surrounding the Castle, is a treasure. You can easily have a walk, enjoy nature around, and see some rabbits and deer. Wake up to the sound of birds singing, take a refreshing morning walk in the woods or along the river, and see the gorgeous racehorses running.
- 80 hectares of private land offer a total immersion in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Cotentin.
- Screen projectors and 2 sound systems.
- Library with old and new books in different languages.
- All deluxe rooms have desks for working. Big windows allow plenty of light into the room. Lovely large rooms, and private bathrooms, some of which with both bathtub and shower. The real castle experience with large, stylish beds, refined decor, and a view of Castle Park.
- All standard rooms are spacious with beautiful views, and we have both private and shared bathroom options. The large bathrooms have both a shower place and a large bathtub with an amazing view over the park and marshes. Some of these rooms have double beds with an option for an additional single bed to be added and others have king-size canopy beds that will make you feel like a royal. All rooms are equipped with desks and plenty of storage space.
Please note that we charge an additional 50 euros per week or 150 euros per month if you bring a pet to cover the additional cleaning required by our staff (we can only host two pets at once and we have specific rooms for residents with pets). Therefore, we request that anyone wishing to join us with a pet contact us prior to making a reservation.


This property is for digital nomads, freelancers, entrepreneurs, voyageurs, animal and nature lovers. We love animals and spending time in nature, as long for those who want to work remotely and then share experience and meet new people. Our chateau for coliving gives you space and quietness to concentrate on your projects, without missing out on social life and fun activities. You’ll find the easy-going and friendly atmosphere of a coliving, in the lush historical setting of a castle.

L'Isle Marie (Houlme - Normandy), Picauville
The exact location is provided after the booking is confirmed.

Houlme - Normandy

Due to its central location, Isle Marie is an excellent base for a work retreat and at the same time enjoy the main attractions in Normandy, like the iconic Mount Saint Michel. The cute historical town of Bayeux - where you can see the tapestry of William the Conqueror - and D-Day landing beaches are only 30min away.
