A beautifully renovated 18th century château, La Chenevière is perfectly located for day trips to Normandy Landing Beaches and Mont St Michel. This peaceful location, just half a mile from the fishing village of Port-en-Bessin, also makes it a refined and characterful base for visits to Bayeux with its rich history and architecture. When not out and about exploring the many attractions of Normandy, bask in the supremely relaxing experience of château life – leisurely dips in the heated outdoor pool, gentle strolls or e-bikes rides through the serene parkland and gardens, or maybe working up an appetite for dinner on the tennis court.
Views of manicured gardens can be enjoyed from all of the spacious, light-filled rooms. The castle is also home to extensive vegetable gardens and beehives which provide fresh, locally sourced herbs, fruit, vegetables and honey to the château’s two superb restaurants. Feast on bistrot-style cuisine in the relaxing setting of Le Petit Jardin, or head to Le Botaniste to enjoy an exquisite, fine-dining take on Normandy specialities – and a fine selection of hand-picked vintage wines. For after-dinner drinks, Zanzibar delivers an almost speakeasy experience; an intimate and atmospheric bar, furnished with curios from the owner’s travels and boasting a menu of Calvados-based cocktails.
