Tucked away down a beautiful drive is this amazing farmhouse-turned-B&B, not far from many of the D-Day sites which is what brought my family and I to the area. We were in awe from the moment we stepped out of the car. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. My family and I ended up staying in...

The images of the hotel looked great, it was exactly where we wanted to be and fairly central for all the activities we had planned for the trip, not too busy or near a populated area. When we got there it was better than we expected, the owners were extremely warm and helpful, the staff likewise. The accommodation was clean,...

Simply sublime, the place is superb, the hosts welcoming, and the food is to die for! We will visit again for sure. So much D Day history all around the area, Utah Beach, St Mare Eglise etc. Plus several museums.

This is a lovely farmhouse-and-stables converted to a wonderful B&B with a great restaurant. There is ample free parking, the rooms all overlook the central courtyard, as does the entrance to the restaurant where dinner and breakfast are served. The food is excellent and the rooms are spacious and clean, with bug-grilles on the windows so they can be left...

We stayed here as part of a 7 day Discover France self guided bike ride, when we rode in, we knew we were in for something very special. Run by Joe and Katarina, wonderful hosts, who have worked many years restoring and re-building this estate. Luckily we got to spend two nights in the most special place of the whole...

A simply gorgeous hotel, with a high quality restaurant at very reasonable prices. It is set 2 miles behind Utah Beach, and we used it as a base to explore the whole D Day landings areas. Caen is easy access, as is St Mere Eglise, all the beaches, and everything to do with D Day itself. A superb location for...

A beautiful place. Fantastically friendly hosts who have done an amazing job of turning a set of beautiful old farm buildings into an amazing hotel. They made us feel very welcome and completely at home. Food was superb. Can't fault it. Will definitely go back if we visit the area again.

This was exactly what you expect from the photos! So beautiful and quiet! 5 minute drive to Utah beach and the host knew our name upon arrival. Perfect little breakfast with fresh yogurt available and great options for a few drinks in the evening! Can't wait to go again!
