Chef Olivier Barbarin constantly refreshes the menu at the Château d’Audrieu’s restaurant, named “Le Séran” as a tribute to the château’s history. Consisting of three dining rooms on the ground floor, the restaurant has a warm ambiance and is painted bright red in a colour known as “Terre d’Égypte”. In the first dining room, a generous 600-bottle wine cellar occupies an entire wall between two doors! A wide range of more than 200 different wines, representing the vast majority of France’s wine-producing areas, as well as several from across Europe and the New World, has been carefully selected. The wine list includes a page entitled “Favourites” dedicated to recommendations from the sommelier. For a dinner for two, with family or friends, “Le Séran” is a welcoming spot where simplicity and fine dining come together in just the right way. The fresh seasonal produce from the garden will delight all taste buds!

The Château d’Audrieu is a listed historic monument that has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment program to recapture the finery of its early 18th-century interior.
The property cultivates a sizable kitchen garden, from which the chef personally harvests vegetables and herbs ranging from beets, through cherry tomatoes, fennel, gherkins, green beans, and zucchini, to home grown raspberries and strawberries. In celebration of Normandy’s traditions, the château also produces significant volumes of organic cider. Developing the artisan theme, the property—conscious of the reduction in Europe’s bee populations—has installed its own hives in a biodiverse environment where bees can thrive; these yielded their first honey last spring. And, to further promote its homegrown apples, along with its roses, the château has launched its own line of flavored organic tea.
