There is a reason the cream of society, the intelligentsia and artists choose to convene at Chateau de Canisy. At every turn, an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity is enriched by the chateau's history and captivating charm. Inside the chateau's walls, discover a spectacular salon de musique, a stately dining room, a theatre and a disco modeled on the fabled Cavern club in Liverpool where The Beatles got their start.
Picture this: the entire chateau at your disposal for a truly unforgettable event: a wedding that will live in history, cultural symposia, occasions to celebrate or concentrate for academies, think tanks and foundations, family gatherings, the birthday of a lifetime. The chateau has also seen a roll call of classical music luminaries grace its salon, many during the chateau's famed Fête de la Musique Canisy, an annual musical gala organized by Comte Dennis as part of his passionate patronage of the arts.
Performers have included folk legend Joan Baez, American fiddle virtuoso Dirk Powell, the harpist Marielle Nordman and husband violonist Patrice Fontanarosa, the pianists Anne Quefellec and Christian Ivaldi, the violinist Nicolas Dautricour, Russian pianist and composer Alexander Gasparov, composer Alissa Firsova (whose piece Opus 22 Chateau de Canisy is inspired by her time at the chateau), Russian cellist Anatole Liebermann, and Peter Franck, a violinist with Orchestre de Paris under Daniel Barenboim.
Let your imagination soar. Think of the possibilities. Chateau de Canisy awaits.
The expansive estate of Chateau de Canisy offers suitable pursuits for those to the manor born, or recently arrived. Saddle up for a gallop on horseback, chance your hand and test your arm at petanque, or join the club of golf aficionados who cherish the region's spectacular courses. Archery, fishing, cycling, clay pigeon shooting and hot air ballooning are among the other aristocratic pastimes on offer.
In the chateau itself, browse a library of timeworn tomes, appreciate family heirlooms and explore medieval cellars. In the salon de musique a string quartet strikes up; in a private discotheque concealed in a cavern, night owls shake booties and hoot.
