Must Stay: Chateau la Cheneviere in Normandy

Many of our private France tours include a stay at Chateau la Cheneviere, a wonderful luxury hotel in the heart of Normandy.  Situated in a beautifully restored 18th-century chateau surrounded by expansive grounds, the hotel makes a perfect base for exploring the region, including highlights such as the D-Day beaches, Mont-Saint-Michel, the Bayeux Tapestry, the Cheese & Cider Route, and scenic towns such as Honfleur and Deauville.

The gardens at Chateau La Cheneviere provide seasonal produce for the hotel’s excellent fine dining restaurant. The delicious tasting menus (including vegetarian menus) feature the best of Normandy’s land and sea ingredients and traditions, including excellent seafood, local cheeses, and the region’s famous salted butter.

For horticultural enthusiasts, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange private garden tours throughout Normandy, including to renowned gardens such as Giverny.
