Breakfast at Le Manoir

To have a perfect start of the day, you will have to taste the breakfast at Le Manoir ! Breakfast is cooked everyday using the fresh local produces.

Home made croissant and pains au chocolat, our french baguette from our favorite bakery, freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit, home made yoghurt and of course « the Normandy cheeses. Our jams are home made and varie depending on the fruits of garden and the season.

Our happy chicken are walking freely around le Manoir and they proudly lay eggs every morning ! Why would you resist to the temptation to « l’oeuf à la coque » !

If you are wondering about french gastronomy, here is a list of our favorite places :

La Cantine d'Eugène
Located in the little village of Saint Pierre de Semilly just 7 kms away from us.
We love going there on a Friday night with the kids, confortable home food, cosy corner next to the fire place where the meat will be grilling slowly... Delicious !

Le Manoir de la Drôme à Balleroy
A "Must Do" during your stay in Normandy ! french gastronomy at his best ! perfect location in a old Manor House alongside a wonderful garden and the "Drome" river. Let Denis Leclerq, the CHEF, inspire you with his menu of the day. He will be cooking for you using all fresh ingredients found on the local market.

Le Garde Manger à Bayeux
Just located in front of the Cathedral and next to the tapistry, this local pub/restaurant is the ideal retreat for a quick bite !
We very often sit there for a cool glass of cider on the terrasse  or a "home made hot chocolate" and watch the world go by.

Port-en-bessin
The sea, the authentic and artisanal fishing port and all the quaint fishing boats, it is really beautiful and a breath of fresh air ! perfect to taste all the sea food from Normandy.
We have discovered the perfect hiding gem for a pic nic overlooking the sea.... but "shuuuut.... it is a secret......"

La Sapinière d’Omaha beach
Kids love going there ! after a long stroll on the 7kms beach, sand castle and horse riding, we are really happy to sit in the garden or inside the restaurant where you will enjoy home cooking in a very relax and "beach" atmosphere !
The chocolate mousse is indecently good and the rosé wine is perfect under the sunshine !

At home !
Is simply at le Manoir, when you arrive late after a very long drive, you really do not fancy going out any more, we can help you relaxing by offering you the following choice :
