      a charming place!

      This is a beautiful old house. The room was very sweet and nicely decorated, dinner and breakfast were yummy. And it's wonderful that we could eat the breakfast in the porch or outside with all the green surrounding us and the kids could run in the garden.

      This was our second stay here and we will go again. The hosts and staff are lovely and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent and the evening meal was superb as before. A perfect stay close to Caen ferry port.

      Comfortable, good value stay

      We stayed here for 1 night in June 2019 while on our way to Bayeux from Limoges. We arrived at 9pm but were still greeted with a friendly smile from Su and they were happy to cook us a delicious omelette and salad each. The room was clean and well-appointed with a most comfortable bed. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Everything, including drink, was excellent value. There is a communal room with television. Slightly off the beaten track (20 mins from the motorway) but with good directions, this is a charming place to stay in the French countryside. Overall, definitely recommended.

      Outstanding experience. We arrived very tired and asked about dinner options in the town. Our host (a gourmet chef, as we knew) presented us the "bar menu", which in America means junk food (nachos, french fries, etc.). We stayed in, ordering the homemade sausage special (served with couscous and an apple chutney), charcuterie, and a wonderful tomato Caprese salad. We also had the proper dinner the second night - the duck was a masterpiece. Great facility, very friendly hosts, very highly recommended.
