This was a second time to stay at the Chateau. The first time was six years ago. I must say that this is our favorite spot in all of France. That is saying a lot for people who visit the country every year. The staff is friendly and make one feel at home. The grounds are tranquil and a great... More

We stayed at La Cheneviere in November. From the minute we drove up to the door in the dark and rain to the minute we checked out in sunlight streaming through the morning mist, it was perfection. For all that this is a luxury hotel, the staff could not have been friendlier. People are heard to complain that the French... More

Such a beautiful place, we loved everything about this chataeu. They could unfortunately only host us for one night but we would have liked to stay for many nights. They offer free bicycles so at night we went down to the small harbour and had the best seafood right by the ocean.There is nothing bad to say about this hotel!... More

We had a perfect visit for 2 nights. We used a rented car to explore the D-Day sites which are very close by. Could have used an extra day or two at this beautiful Chateaux. What a nice property in the French countryside. Very quiet and restful. We had a corner suite in the main building. The restaurant is fantastic.... More

We stayed here for seven nights and were sad to have to leave. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and know how to make for a memorable and pleasant stay. The restaurant albeit expensive, served some of the most wonderful meals that we have had anywhere in the world--we even requested and met Didier, the chef one evening. We wanted... More

As a member of the hotel grouping that this hotel is a part of, we recently spent a long weekend here as a base to explore some of Normandy's attractions. The hotel itself is, as the name suggests, one of the typical old Chateaux in the area, sited on some wonderfully tended grounds. The entire property exudes peace, calm and... More

We stayed for two nights while touring the D-Day sites in the area. The hotel is a great choice for rooms, staff helpfulness and the restaurant. Highly recommend. Only negative was sketchy wifi, but it was free and probably shouldn't have been using it anyway.
