“Wonderfully quaint, quiet, rustic B&B in the heart of D-Day country...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I stayed here in this quiet out of the way country chateau B&B a stones throw from the village of Sainte-Mere-Eglise (US 101st Airborne country) and Omaha Beach for 4 nights after arriving in from Paris CDG airport by car. The ride in to the the B&B off the motorway takes you either through Sainte'-Mere-Eglise (per the GPS) OR if you prefer through the village of Sainte'-Marie-Du-Mont (my preference:)). Along the road you pass along many a hedge rows (which in many cases seperate adjoining farmland) while very beautiful during the day can be very vexing to drive through at dusk as it becomes very dark and hard to see almost as if one is in a darken tunnel. It is hard to believe D-Day raged on through out this picturesque area....you can almost imagine the hearing the "clickers" the airborne use to identify friend from foe. I arrived before dusk:) to a two story manor house which was very welcoming from the inside out and is surrounded by a stone wall and many trees with an wrought iron gate to the driveway. Upon arrival, Pascal and his wife greeted me at the door and I was escorted outside to the backyard to enjoy a glass of cider to relax from a long journey which began by air from Hamburg, Germany. All the rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the manor accessible by the "turret" styled staircase through a large wooden door. My room was on the 2nd floor and faced the front of the house off the driveway. The room was very nicely furnished and includes original hardwood flooring. the Bath is quite large and includes a walk in shower. The rooms themselves do not have a TV, but one can be found in the 1st floor living area (BUT what would you need of one really with so much to explore in the region right)?;) A complimentary breakfast is served each morning also down in 1st floor living area and includes all sorts of specialty teas, coffees, cereals, pastries, juices and regional jams for toast. Pascal, my gracious host, informed me of the history of the home. The manor is original to the area and I think was built back in the 14th century if I am not mistaken. It survived the WWII including the Normandy invasion landings in which the whole area experienced much damage from shelling and aerial bombings. The manor is not far from the landing beaches of Utah Beach, as well as a few short miles to both St. Mere Eglise and Saint Marie du Mont. These villages close up early in the evening adn do not have much in the way of what a larger city might provide. Thus a 15 min drive into Carentan serves all purposes of whatever your need might be. Other ares of interest include Omaha Beach and the American Cemetary at Colleville-sur-Mur (see in the beginning of Saving Private Ryan) 25 min. The 101st Airborne Museum (the church in the square has a replica of an airborne soldier hanging by its parachute honoring John Steele) - village centre of St. Mere Eglise 10 min. Brecourt Manor - a memorial plaque next to farmland now occupied by cows where Capt. Dick Winters led elements of 101st Easy Company in capturing a stronghold of German 88mm guns firing on Utah Beach - 5 min.

Warm and welcoming stone manor house tastefully remodeled. Loved being in the country-side while visiting the D-Day sites. So nice to escape from the crowds yet be a short drive away from good dining and other options in nearby quaint Norman towns. Our family room suite was perfect - separate bedrooms sharing a large, spotlessly clean modern bathroom. Breakfast was delightful and ample - homemade jams and nice selection of breads, cheeses and meats. We particularly enjoyed imbibing local cider in the rambling pretty garden next to the stone tower. Delightful all around. Highly recommend for families and couples.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice and quiet, beds were very comfortable

We stayed here for one night while traveling France. It was a beautiful place to go, away for the hustle and bustle. The hotel itself is in the country side about 3 miles outside of Sainte-mere-Eglise so it's necessary to have transport to stay here.
The rooms were large and bright and spotlessly clean. Our room had a lovely rain shower in the En-Suite and a proper hair dryer! The room also had Tea& Coffee making facilities.
One thing that might be an issue for some is that there was no TV in the bedroom itself, just in the communal area. It didn't bother us as its more so a sit, relax and read a book kind of place. This hotel we thought would really benefit from is a pool.
The breakfast we got was plentiful and quality, lovely homemade breads and jam, cereal and juice. Anyone with alergies beware as this is a house with indoor cats. They were exceptionally well behaved and clean but it might be off putting for some as they are in the breakfast area.
My overall experience here was excellent and we would definitely return. Lovely people, lovely place.

I've never stayed in a chateau before, so this was an absolutely fascinating place to stay. It's clearly been updated recently, but that doesn't take away from the charm of the circular stone stairway or the doorway designed for people of a shorter age. My room was huge with a lovely view of the garden and entryway. The wifi was totally reliable and free. Breakfast was generous, with boiled eggs, croissants, pastries, salami and cheese. Very European, which I liked. The hosts are very pleasant but keep interactions to a minimum. The woman who runs this speaks good English; the host has enough English to transact business, but not enough to carry on a conversation of any length.

The chateau is about 4 km outside of town in a rural area. I'd advise having dinner wherever you find it before coming back to the chateau. The place is about a 10-minute drive from Ste.-Mere-Eglise and 10-15 minutes from Utah Beach, so it's very convenient for that part of DDay. It's about 35 minutes from Omaha Beach and the cemetery.

Le Manoir is a beautiful 16th century Manor House in Normandy which has been decorated and restored. We stayed here for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were tasteful, quiet and with a large bathroom. The breakfast was excellent with all fresh ingredients and homemade condiments. The local cider we were given on arrival was an excellent introduction to the local Normandy ciders!! We went on some beautiful walks around this picturesque area. The Manoir is close to the Normandy beach landings, Bayeux and Le Mont St Michel. The local village Sainte Mère Eglise we visited and had a meals in two restaurants. The host Pascal, and the two cats were very welcoming and friendly. We would return to this beautiful area and stay here.

Room Tip: The stairs had no balustrade so families with small children need to take care.

We visited this excellent establishment for three nights with our 3 y old daughter. It's a wonderful reconstructed little castle, with a great garden - Just the perfect combination of stone walls, heavy wooden beams and shining new bathroom.
The breakfast was excellent, with freshly baked buns and home made confitures.
The location is ideal, no more than an hour to the landing beaches as well as to many small and pretty villages. Our favorite was Sainte Mere Eglise, with the famous paratrooper hanging on the church. Also recommended is Omaha beach - a great place to go swimming with your children.
The manoir is located in a green country side. We have seen other guests taking bike trips in the area. There are many nice restaurants in the area, especially in Saint Vaast la Hougue with the beautiful marina.

Room Tip: no elevator and a steep stairwell, so be prepared to haul those heavy suitcases...

Briefly, this place was totally awesome. Great hosts, superb room, first class cider. Strongly recommends it. We had a beautiful large room, a large bathroom, discret and respectful hosts, helpful with many information about the area. We would return anytime and probably will.
