Exceptional in every way, including Valerie. Definitely one of our nicest stays ever!! If going to Normandy DO NOT miss this sensational experience. Will be recommending to all that we know. Dena G
My family of 4 stayed in this amazing house (castle) 18-20 June 2017. I have never booked a B&B before, but I can tell you this place was absolutely stunning! The property itself (built in 1623) was out of a story book. The rooms were spacious and bright. Everything was immaculately clean. The views from the rooms to the orchard were awesome! Valerie could not have been more accommodating and helpful. her breakfast was to die for. We had mode made Chocolate orange cake, jams from her mother and fresh eggs from her farm. It is conveniently located between Bayuex and Caen. She is amazing and I would book here again without hesitation!
We - a Danish family of four - spend three nights at ferme-manoir de Cacharat. And we all enjoyed it very much. The rooms are large, lovely decorated and of course clean. The breakfast served every morning is delicious. The kids loved the barn where you can play ie tabletennis and badminton ¿¿. We were met with great hospitallity by the owner of the place. ¿¿¿¿¿¿We would love to come back and send our full recomendstions and thanks for a wonderfull stay.¿¿
My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days at the Grenier a sel! Our hosts, Liliane and Jean Jacques are soooo lovely and amazing! Having a great knowledge about Normandy, about the bests restaurants and places to visit, they told us every day what to do or visit, that was great! Our days began every morning with a delicious traditional french breakfast, baguette, pain au chocolat, croissants and the differents kind of home made jam, coffee, orange juice, etc. That was awesome and great!!! The rooms are very spacious and the beds very big! Everything was perfect!!!! Thank you very much, dear Liliane and Jean Jacques for your kindness, your friendship and for all the unforgettable moments shared with you!!
What a beautiful, comfortable place to stay during our travels! Valerie was extremely helpful and hospitable (from booking, and throughout our stay). Such a friendly, down-to-earth hostess! Very French country Inn style. A narrow, winding staircase led us up to our spacious, clean and very comfortable room. Valerie made wonderful homemade breakfasts. We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace on the main floor at night talking with other guests. Hope to stay there again in the future!
un accueil très sympathique et chaleureux, un environnement magnifique une chambre très agréable et spacieuse, un petit déjeuner copieux et très bon, avec confiture maison . le petit plus un réfrigérateur ou nous avons pu mettre notre bouteille de champagne au frais . A recommander vivement. Nous reviendrons et en parlerons autour de nous. Un grand merci a Liliane et Jean Jacques . BB et GM
Our stay at the Ferme-manoir de Cacharat, was everything and much more than we had dreamed of. Normandy´s culture, class and fine colours, all put into fine spacious rooms, with the greatest hospitality from Mdm Valérie. We were treated as guests of the home, but with a discrete line of privacy and served the best homemade breakfast throughout France. The sense of details and service during our three night stay was nothing but SUPERBE! À bientôt - La famille danoise
We spent two relaxing , comfortable nights here. Valerie was a charming and attentive hostess sharing information about the local area and loaning us her map. We slept well in a spacious bedroom and woke to swooping swallows outside the bedroom window. Breakfast was a feast for the eyes and the taste buds; home made yogurt, cake, preserves and delicious scrambled eggs. The guest living room is huge and comfortable and as the evenings were chilly Valerie lit a log fire for us to return to after dinner. If you want a special, place to stay and do not mind climbing a stone spiral staircase to bed, go visit.
Highly recommend this beautiful B&B! This is the most charming country farmhouse and Valerie is accommodating, friendly, welcoming, and a wonderful hostess. We were greeted by a lovely fire and a warm smile. We felt like guests rather an customers. Her home was so inviting, we didn't even want to leave for our tours and site-seeing adventures, and looked forward to returning "home" each day. There is a large common area for guests and spacious bedrooms. Our personal bathroom (in the Linen Room) seemed to be the size of our Paris hotel room!! The bedroom allowed space to unpack, reorganize, relax, have lovely views, and a very comfortable bed. Wifi is available in the common room (not the bedrooms), and was fast for us. Each morning we started our day with fresh eggs, yogurt, fruit, bread, and a sweet dish of some sort made each morning by Valerie - the eggs were from Valerie's hens and the yogurt was also homemade. The bread from Valerie's local boulangerie was outstanding and the jams are made by Valerie and her mom. An added very special touch were cookies baked each day and left on the coffee table for us to enjoy. The located between Caen and Bayeux worked great for us - we also really loved the nearby restaurant Valerie suggested. While there we did a D-Day tour, drove to Mont St Michel, Bayeux, and stopped by Honfleur on our way to Paris. There happens to be a local WWII cemetery, which is a beautiful, peaceful walk away. This spotless B&B deserves 10 stars; it's lovely!! It is a place we will remember forever!
My husband and I stayed for two nights with some friends at this B&B in May. This house is lovely, in a beautiful setting and with very good hosts. Although we were late in arriving, Vincent was very accommodating. The rooms were very large and well appointed. Because of other reviews, we requested that Vincent cook for us the evening we returned from touring the Normandy beaches and it was a wonderful ending to our Normandy experience. Other guests at the B&B were at the table for dinner and it was a memorable evening. If you have time, be sure to experience Vincent's evening meal - although the breakfast will illuminate you on his cooking skills.
We had a great stay here. Went to see the D-day area. This B &B is central to Caen and Bayeax. Very rural and beautiful countryside. The owner, Valerie is a most gracious host. She likes to bake so you will have a very nice breakfast every morning. We highly recommend this B & B. The bedroom is on the second floor with a winding staircase which we enjoyed but if you have a problem with stairs this might not be good for you.
We were two couples looking for a base to use for our stay in Normandy. This converted farmhouse was a beautiful find. There are only two rooms so it was very quite. The rooms were very modern and the breakfast was fantastic with eggs to order, homemade pastry and fresh fruit and yogurt. Next time we'll stay longer. The only difficulty might be the narrow stairs leading to the rooms that might be a problem for older couples. Overall, we loved it.
I recently stayed at Le Petite Halle with my family while visiting Bayeaux. The place was perfectly suited for us. Clean, large enough, and stocked with everything we needed to be comfortable and cook our meals. Its location was just off of Main street, within walking distance to everything. Bayeux is a delightful and charming city, rich in history. I would highly recommend a visit.
Patricia was very helpful and a great hostess during and before our stay. She came up with passes we needed and the french dinner was outstanding worth every bit of the cost. Would highly reccommend it as a place to plan a Normandy vacation as you can see Mont St. Michel, Caen, Rouen and the beaches from the manior all are within a day trip of the manior.
Stratégiquement située en pleine campagne, mais à portée de main de Bayeux et de Caen, la ferme Manoir est l'un de ces endroits rares où la convivialité et le plaisir règnent en maîtres!!
Nous sommes enchantés nous avons séjourné avec nos trois enfants à Castillon dans cette ferme. Pascale nous a aidés a oragniser notre séjour avec les bons tuyaux des gens du coin. Nous avons découvert une très belle région. Petit déjeuner très copieux et entiérement bio!!. Nous avons appris beaucoup de choses sur la production des oeufs. Bref a recommander
Dit is een B&B waar men U verrast met een uitzonderlijke service,vriendelijkheid en kwaliteit. Het avondeten is van een zeer goede kwaliteit en wordt bereid door de uitbaters(Mevr). De familie staat steeds spontaan ter beschikking van de klanten om informatie en raad te geven omtrent de touristische mogelijkheden van de streek. Kortom, een adres om te promoten.
We would highly recommend this B & B, even though its actual character seemed a bit different than the images we found on the internet. Dean and Susan, and their children, are extremely welcoming hosts. Dean has encyclopedic knowledge of the area and its attractions. He provided us with excellent tips for spending our four days in Normandy. Notwithstanding the rural setting, good dinning and reasonable shopping are close at hand. So are all the key sites in Normandy. The setting is quite rural, so those seeking a quiet home base in the Norman countryside will love it. We were happy to find that the B & B was not fancy or pretentious, as some of the internet pictures might imply. It is surrounded by working farms and the guest rooms, which are modern and well-decorated, are in an older stone farm structure. The rooms are very large. Our rooms were located on the second floor and very private. The dining area downstairs is open for use for evening meals; we often bought local fruit, wine, cheese, and bread and had picnicked downstairs for dinner. Susan’s excellent breakfasts—including fresh local pastries and sometimes eggs for the family’s chickens—are served here. A very nice experience.
We stayed 2 nights in the clean and lovely room. Chef and owner, Vincent cooked a fabulous 6 course dinner for us our first night. We started with champagne and 3 different appetizers then sat down to our first course of Coquille baked in shells with a lovely, light sauce. A light homemade sherbet then On to Blanquette de veau ( veal). Then the cheese course and dessert, a fabulous molten chocolate. Yum!
We had 2 rooms for 2 nights at La Beauconniere. My husband, 10 month old son, mother and I spent a few days/nights in Paris and were finishing off our trip with a short stay in the Normandy region. If I could do this trip again, I would reverse that decision and spend the majority of our time in Normandy... that statement is greatly influenced by the hospitality and wonderful atmosphere at La Beauconniere! The buildings on the property are so very charming and our rooms were clean, spacious, and very well-presented. I had mentioned that we would be traveling with our little one, and Susan had set up a sweet little Paddington Bear travel crib for him. Dean is incredibly outgoing and happy to give day trip advice, make restaurant reservations/recommendations, or just have a nice chat in the garden. Dean & Susan made a point of introducing us to the other guests and that added to the relaxed, familial atmosphere. Having a tasty breakfast and lively conversation with Dean and the other guests was a wonderful way to start each day. We typically stay in B&Bs in the UK that serve the typical "Full English", and Susan's tasty breakfasts were a delightful change of pace. Our fondest memories from our Paris-Normandy trip are really and truly those made relaxing and playing outside in the sunny garden. The only thing you will regret about staying at La Beauconniere is that you didn't stay there longer!!
Pour notre 3e séjour à la Ferme Manoir St Barthélémy nous avons (comme d'habitude) reçu un accueil très chaleureux, le lieu est tojours aussi calme et table très appréciable avec des produits du terroir cuisiné par Patricia Saunier
My husband and I stayed at Chateau de Damigny with my dad in April for 2 days and wished it could have been longer. The Chateau is full of history and has been beautifully restored. We enjoyed reading about the history of the Chateau and wandered around the property to see the remains of the old fortress. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Vincent and his wife and adorable son. They made us feel welcome and provided us with plenty of information on the area. Vincent speaks English very well and makes a delicious omelette. The breakfast here was definitely the best food we ate in France. The rooms are comfortable and ours had the nicest jacuzzi tub! It was so relaxing after a day of intense sightseeing. The Chateau is located conveniently to see sights in Caen, Bayeux and the Normandy Beaches. Vincent also showed us where we could see some cool manor houses and castles (things you don't see here in the US). We very much enjoyed our stay at Chateua de Damigny and if we ever get the chance to return to Normandie, we will definitely stay here.
My husband and I, with our daughter and her friend, stayed for 2 nights at La Beauconniere. It was wonderful. The entire family greeted us upon our arrival. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable, clean and lovely. Dean is an affable host -- very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and his recommendations were perfect. Susan is an excellent cook and the breakfasts were a thankful respite from the usual croissants you'll get everywhere else. The setting is in a bucolic area of Normandy. If you get the chance to visit this area, I highly recommend La Beauconniere as the most lovely place to stay! Mary and Bradley S, USA
si vous avez envie d'être reçus comme des rois faites le détour au château de damigny chez Vincent et corinne, des chambres superbes que dis-je des chambres exceptionnelles une repas digne d'un festin et un petit déjeuner a en perdre la tête ... un acceuil chaleureux de la petite famille vivement notre prochain week end car en plus complètement abordable, c'est un endroit de charme et de prestige, bravo a vous 2
We recently stayed at this beautiful chateau with an outstanding host, Vincent. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and at home. The food was the best we had in France, the room was comfortable and absolutely lovely. When we return to France, we will be sure to base our travel from the Chateau de Damigny. This should be a top B&B on everyone's list.
I stayed with my mother at Chateau de Damigny during our visit to France, and I we both agreed that if we could have stayed in one place the whole visit, this would have been it. Vincent was an outstanding host. He provided us with maps and brochures (in English!) for the local area, suggested restaurants in Bayeux, and made the most amazing breakfasts for us each day. The price was outstanding, the room was large and comfortable, and the en suite bathroom was modern and very clean. We cannot recommend it enough. Outstanding. Thank you!
