Coutainville manor house​

Overlooking the coast, Coutainville manor house is typical of the fortified houses found on the Cotentin peninsula. The surrounding walls protect the manor house and its gardens from the wind, the gaze of passers-by and intruders! Access is via a large gateway which opens onto a courtyard garden surrounded by several buildings which house the guest bedrooms. On the first floor of the manor house, the “Seigneurie” and “Dame Jeanne” rooms have a lot of character with their old wooden floors and their ceiling beams painted white. They are both very spacious and each has a lounge area and an ensuite bathroom. The “Seigneurie” room has a pretty, old-fashioned bathroom, whereas the “Dame Jeanne” room has a zinc-and-timber round shower in the tower. The three other guest rooms are in an outbuilding, upstairs. They are smaller and more cosy and overlook the sea. The ground floor of the outbuilding is given over to guests, with a lounge with an open fireplace and a games room. Across the courtyard, the barn can be used for family reunions or other events. Sophie Véron welcomes all her guests warmly to her manor house. Her professional experience required her to travel all over the world and has equipped her to welcome her guests politely, tactfully and humourously. Her delicious meals are not to be missed! They are made with top-quality ingredients, mostly grown or made locally, and are served on a large mahogony table opposite the open fire burning in the hearth. At breakfast time, the table is covered in different sorts of bread, local specialities and apple juice, a real treat! This B&B’s many advantages have been combined to create a top-quality B&B that will satisfy the most demanding guests.
