Château d'Audrieu

Off D82, 13 km (8 miles) southeast of Bayeux, Audrieu, 14250, France

Princely opulence, overstuffed chairs, wall sconces, antiques—this family-owned château with an elegant 18th-century facade and grand restaurant fulfills the Hollywood notion of a palatial property. Guest rooms 50 and 51 have peaked ceilings with exposed-wood beams, and the enchanting restaurant (closed Monday; no lunch weekdays) boasts white wainscoting, crystal chandeliers, and gilt accents. Chef Olivier Barbarin highlights local ingredients in dishes like scallops with chestnut foam and seasonal mushrooms, which are complemented by an extensive wine list.
