We truly enjoyed our stay in late September at Chateau La Cheneviere near Port-en-Bessin. Room size and layout was large and comfortable. Location is quiet but provides easy access to the village or to nearby Bayeux, as well as the D-Day beaches/sites. Staff quite helpful, friendly and pleasant. The grounds and surrounding countryside are beautiful. Enjoyed the restaurant, but the... More

We stayed 3 nights in July for our visits to the Normandy area. We had a suite for our family of 3 and we were extremely confortable, the food was fabulous. Nice to relax after busy day of touring. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful setting with friendly staff. Good dining room and comfortable rooms. Lack of a/c did not create an issue because the cool breeze through the window was pleasant. I would be concerned about a summer stay. Normandy cows (with sunglasses) in adjacent pasture were calming.

Made most welcome from arrival to departure, all the Staff were most polite and helpful. The standard of spoken English was exceptional for those non French speaking visitors. The restaurant was definitely "fine dining" , with wines and service to match, we enjoyed a swim in the heated outdoor pool which is big enough to swim properly in. Our room... More

A Norwegian family spent 5 nights here, and 3 dinners at the restaurant. Everything was exquisite. The staff was friendly, and made us feel like home. The food was tasteful, with a variety of the french cuisine. Especially the desserts were remarkable. A spacious garden and the pool area is beatutiful, and really a place to relax.
