le manoir d’hérouville: our bed & breakfast in normandy

Saturday, July 1, 2006:  We love our hotel in Normandy,  Le Manoir d’Hérouville, set in 17 acres of landscaped gardens and rural fields. Carefully restored to retain the feel of a pre-revolutionary Manoir, today it is an informal family home. We stay in Le Pigeonnier at Le Manoir d’Hérouville.

Le Manoir d’ Hérouville is midway between the Norman towns of Bayeux and St Lo. Dated 1744, Le Pigeonnier was the manor dovecote; the tower-like building is charming and unique. The accommodation is spread over three floors for 2 to 5 people.

A lavender-bordered path leads gently up to the door of the round and quirky building, separated from the main house by the gravel courtyard.

I adore this tranquil, beautiful and welcoming place, where we stay four nights while we explore the Normandy area.
