Everything about this baronial manor house is awe inspiring, but the immensely warm welcome is anything but intimidating. Four stone mansions dating from the 13th to the 15th centuries and clustering around a large courtyard combine to form a wonderfully romantic, charming country hotel only a few miles south of the coast near Asnelles. The restaurant, with its exposed stone walls and beamed ceiling, is just as charming. Traditional Norman cuisine meets the sea, with dishes including slow-cooked pigs’ cheeks and a duo of sea bass and scallops with cèpes. Fixed-price menus run between 32€ and 44€, with lunch at 16€. The restaurant is open to the public, and guests have the option of half board.
