La Chenevière Review

Topped by an impressive mansard roof, occupying an elegant 18th-century château mansion, and surrounded by cheerful gardens, this is a true oasis of peace a few kilometers down the road—and yet a million miles away—from World War II sites like Omaha Beach; inland from Port-en-Bessin, the hotel allures with super-stylish guest rooms, which comprise a fetching mix of Louis Seize chairs, gilded ormolu objects, modern photographs, and very chic fabrics. Overlooking the grand pool is La Chenevière's showpiece: a stunning, glassed-in modern conservatory with wicker furniture and abstract art. The opulent restaurant, with wood paneling and lordly fireplaces, serves cuisine appropriate to its surroundings: spiced Dover sole with salsify, chanterelles, and cepes, or roast lamb with citron, stuffed piquillo peppers, and potato crisps.

    Best in Normand

    There are very few top notch accomodations in the la Manche region of Normandy. Just outside the little seaside village of Port-en-Bessin is la Cheneviere. This hotel is pricey, but the rooms are worth the price in my view. We did not dine there, but enjoyed the delicious and varied buffet breakfasts.

    Air conditioning is one of our requirements and la Cheneviere is one of a small handful of places in Normandy which provides it.

    There is a great pool and the grounds and lawns are expansive and flower-filled. Some of the specimen trees are magnificent. There are trails meandering through woods, fields and orchards. We had a very satisfying stay.
