LES MANOIRS DE TOURGÉVILLE Normandy, France


LOCATION: Snuggled in the heart of Normandy, just five minutes’ drive from perfectly picturesque Deauville and 20 minutes from the idyllic Honfleur. It’s where affluent Parisians head for long


weekends to escape from city life. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: It’s extremely homely and you can easily settle into the relaxed lifestyle of locals in northern France. Wafts of smoke curl into your nostrils from the lounge’s fireplace as soon as you step through the door. The rooms in the manor surround a beautiful grassy terrace that would be the perfect place for


relaxation in the summer sunshine. THE FACTS: The property was originally built in 1978 by French film director Claude Lelouch who planned to use it as the backdrop for a title that never came to fruition. The original manor has 25 rooms, and a further 32 were added when the site was bought by French hotel chain Groupe Floirat in 2009 and reopened the following year.


The property has two restaurants – the Lounge and 1899. The former, which serves lunch and dinner, is all about home comfort cooking with club sandwiches and salads on the menu. Sampling the croque monsieur is an absolute must – it is utterly divine (I had one every day!). The more formal and sophisticated option is 1899, which is open for breakfast and dinner, serving local delicacies and beautifully presented dishes. Recommend clients try the fish at least once during their stay – it’s locally sourced and extremely fresh. The hotel has a renewed focus on its spa offering having recently partnered

with French beauty and skincare brand Institut Esthederm. Treatments include deep-cleansing facials, cellular water therapies, scrubs, massages and wraps, and season-dependent face care sessions. Next to the spa area is the pool, nicely warmed year-round to 29C making it more bath like and heavenly for those seeking some respite. In the summer, the floor-to-ceiling windows are pulled back to transform it into an open-air facility. There’s a tiny gym, outdoor table tennis and bikes for those who are keen to explore the seven-hectare site, cycle around the Normand countryside or into


nearby Deauville. A GOOD BASE FOR: Chilling out. A lot


of wealthy Parisians head to this area for some downtime and it’s not hard to see why. Think countryside walks, spa treatments, delicious food – that’s what


Les Manoirs de Tourgéville is all about. WOW: The bed! I don’t think I’ve slept as well anywhere in the world. My room was a duplex, and I loved the novelty of going to bed upstairs, something I miss in my London flat. I also loved that my room overlooked a stables and waking to see horses each morning was a delight.
