Chateau La Cheneviere
, Escures - Commes, Port-en-Bessin-Huppain, Basse-Normandie.
A former mansion and farm, this magnificent French chateau of the eighteenth century, “La Chenevière”, is a 5 star country hotel that has seen some exciting times. From it’s days as a renowned 19th century horse-breeding farm, through the turbulence of German then American occupation during World War II, it was fully restored in 1988 to become the fine hotel-restaurant that it is today. La Chenevière has 29 spacious and comfortable rooms that reflect the elegance and romance of it’s design. The decor of each room has been designed individually, but always with proper attention paid to the combination of modern comforts with traditional luxury.
Chateau La Chenevière is set in a park of 12 hectares including a walled garden with a heated outdoor pool (open throughout the summer), a tennis court and bicycles. The rose gardens offer luxurious fragrances and many exotic trees make this place an ideal retreat to enjoy a peaceful rest.
The Zanzibar bar is decorated with a collection of travel souvenirs. Its Calvados-based cocktail menu guarantees a fun and unique experience. Meanwhile the a la carte breakfasts are served in the restaurant located on the ground floor, including honey and fruits from the kitchen garden.
The Botanist restaurant in the hotel grounds is an exceptional gourmet experience. The menus change with the rhythm of the seasons ensuring that Chef Didier brings you the best and freshest of dishes using ingredients from the hotel’s own garden and other producers in the region. For a less formal lunchtime meal, the pop-up lunch restaurant is also open from mid-July to September.
Each room at La Chenevière has its own unique design which harmoniously combines ancient charm and modern comfort. The woodwork and marble fireplaces provide an authenticity that only a real French chateau can offer. The rooms range from standard double rooms with king size beds up to grand suites with space to spare. Regardless of choice, all rooms provide free wi-fi, a television and DVD player, minibar, safe, bathrobes and slippers, a hairdryer and complimentary Occitane toiletries.
