Normandy Castles

The purpose of this page is to provide an extensive list of the châteaux in Normandy that can be visited, with a link to their official websites whenever available. Note that over half of the châteaux in Normandy are in private hands and either off-limits to visitors or used as hotels, Bed & Breakfast or for weddings and seminars. Those are not listed here. Government-owned châteaux (e.g. town halls) that cannot be visited were also omitted.
