The best time to visit Normandy is, during the spring between April and June, when the days are sunny but not too hot. The autumn and winter months are another good time to come when there are smaller crowds and snow is a rarity. During the summer areas will be busy and temperatures rise.

Chateau La Chenevière is an elegant 18th Century Chateau with a fascinating history set in 12 acres of landscape grounds. Located just 10 minutes from Omaha beach and Bayeux, the hotel is in a perfect location to visit the local points of interest.
The Chateau features a heated pool, orangery and a tennis court along with 29 light and bright spacious bedrooms, which are all decorated in neutral tones with pastel shades, providing a cosy and romantic atmosphere.

The history of the chateau dates back to the 18th Century, where it was originally a hemp farm and then a breeding farm for foals.
