Gourmet Treat

Chic & Country - - Season -

An hour or so from Deauville, and close enough to Bayeux to al­low you to drive across to view the ta­pes­try, sits the mag­nif­i­cent 18th cen­tury chateau La Cheneviere. Al­though oc­cu­pied by the Ger­mans dur­ing World War II, it has done its best to shrug off its dif­fi­cult past and is now an im­pres­sive 5* ho­tel in a park of 12 hectares. With a veg­etable gar­den that sup­ports the ho­tel’s restau­rant Le Botaniste (where you will also be able to taste the ho­tel’s own honey from its res­i­dent bees), the ho­tel ac­tively sup­ports its lo­cal com­mu­nity and has a real ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the four sea­sons cre­at­ing won­der­ful chang­ing menus fo­cus­ing on ‘terre et mer’. You will be able to taste the full range of Nor­man prod­ucts at the pop­u­larJazz Brunches com­ing up on Septem­ber 30th and Oc­to­ber 14th. Wash your meals down with an Ap­ple Mo­jito (sans al­cool) or try the Cidre brut les verg­ers de Ducy. The au­then­tic­ity of the ex­pe­ri­ence is also re­flected in the de­tail of the ho­tel’s rooms and suites. If you are trav­el­ling en famille and want some­thing self­con­tained and mod­ern, and yet with ac­cess to the ho­tel, book the Es­cures House which is a self-con­tained house just five min­utes away. You will then have the best of both worlds.
