Holidays are for everyone and people with special needs and their families deserve a holiday more than most. Please help us to create this centre especially for these deserving people, their families and carers in the beautiful, peaceful and historic Normandy countryside.

The philosophy of our Chateau is that holidays should be for the whole family or group, especially including the individuals with special needs.

About myself

I was a special needs teacher with many years of experience working with children and adults, especially dealing with learning difficulties, Asperger syndrome and autistic spectrum disorders. I taught and supported pupils and students with life and communication skills, helping to educate them to maximize their own potential. It is very important for everyone to feel confident in themselves and it is amazing what we can all achieve. I have worked with various communication programmes such as PECS, TEACCH and Makaton.

I have already renovated the 2 barns (La Fermette and Le Petit Manoir) which offer good, comfortable, spacious accommodation for families. I now want to renovate the rest of the Chateau to provide further accommodation and other facilities. This will soon also include a Sensory garden with plants that are fascinating to feel, scented or just beautiful to look at as well as landscaping the rest of the garden. We already have a vegetable plot, poly tunnel and potting shed.
