The Château de la Poupelière is part of the Sainte Honorine-la Chardonne village, close to the calvados region in the Normandy bocage also known as 'La Suisse Normande' due to its undulating countryside. It was bought by Guillaume VELAY on the 17th of August 1858 and stayed in the family for 5 generations, until 1989.
When Mr. VELAY bought this property in 1858, it was a huge rectangular house. He added the right hand side of the Château in 1882 and the second part, on the left, was between 1892 & 1894. The 16 by 8 metres' room is a very high building composed of several turrets and is now our reception room. The Château was fortunately spared the two World Wars, especially during the Second World War as Condè sur Noireau, a town a few miles away, was wiped out.
One of the turrets was destroyed by a fire in August 1936 and is now replaced by the terrace. The family property is now The Sainte Honorine Golf & Country Club.
At Ste. Honorine Golf & Country Club we have a range of accommodation; from log cabins to luxury apartments.
The cabins are situated in the grounds immediately surrounding the Château. Each cabin has a fully equipped kitchen, a double and a twin bedroom, a bathroom with either a bath or shower, a lounge with T.V. and a small patio area.
The 18th Century Château has been converted to house 9 suites and 2 apartments. All suites range in price due to the size or the standard to which they have been furnished. Each suite has a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and selected suites have lounge areas as well.
There are 2 apartments are situated at the top of the Château providing an excellent view of the golf course. Each apartment is very spacious with two double bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a fully furnished lounge with T.V.
