We had the opportunity to stay at Chateau de Beneauville for three days. I can not overstate what a wonderful B&B this is. The accomodations are just fabulous. After spending a week in Paris we headed to Normandy. At the end of our three days in Normandy we all agreed that we should have allocated some additional time to stay and explore in this area. My college age daughter and her friend stated that staying here was one of the top highlights of the 12 day visit in France.

We loved our stay at Chateau de Beneauville as something very, very unique. The accomodations were excellent. It is as if you are in a 5 star hotel on an very intimate scale. The Chateau is on 25 acres of luxurious grounds. Philippe and Brigitte, the owners, could not have been more gracious hosts. Wonderful hospitable folks. They went out of their way to ensure that our visit was top notch and enjoyable. We really enjoyed meeting them and hearing of their world travels. They provided us with the most fabulous breakfasts each moring served in the dining room. Wonderful way to start the day! At night they took the time to open a bottle of wine and spend time with us before we went off to dinner.

Bavent is near Cabourg and we had very enjoyable meals at the restaurants Philippe recommended. Maybe somewhat surprisingly, they were some of the best dinners we had during our stay in France. We would have liked more time to just explore around the coast. Maybe next time.

The Chateau is a wonderful spot to use as a base to explore the area. We rented a car and it is an easy drive from Paris on the A13. We stopped in Giverny to see Monet's summer house and gardens where we had a very enjoyable lunch and visit. Then we cruised the back roads to Bavent. We took a day to go to Mont St Michel and Bayeaux. Then we spent a full day with a guide getting a historical perpsective on the WWII D-Day event (Utah/Omaha beached and museums and cemetaries). Fascinating and we could have used an additonal day to explore the other three beaches.

Hopefully you get the sense that we truly enjoyed our stay at Chateau de Beneauville and in Normandy. We wished we had had more time to just relax on the grounds. We would love to again visit the area in the future. We would definately stay at the Chateau again and we have already recommended it to three friends who have plans to travel to the area in 2014.
