La Chenevière

Les Escures-Commes, off the D6, Port-en-Bessin-Huppain, Normandy, 14520, France

Occupying an elegant 18th-century mansion that's topped by an impressive mansard roof and surrounded by cheerful gardens, this is a true oasis of peace—although located only a few miles inland from World War II sites like Omaha Beach, it feels light-years away. The superstylish guest rooms are a fetching mix of Louis XVI 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.
