"Wonderful tranquil stay"
We arrived with our two boys and dog much later than expected after a long drive.We were greeted with a fantastic welcome by Theresa & Bill and were delighted that we had booked an evening meal which was lovely. We booked two rooms, which were quaint and had everything we could possibly need,. It's hard to describe what an idillic , picturesque and delightful stay this is. We would definitely recommend and hope to be back again soon.

About the Owner
Having spent many wonderful holidays in France, we decided to live here permanently. We knew this part of Normandy very well and had always been enchanted by the beautiful scenery and friendly people. Having run an award-winning tearoom in England for some years, we felt that offering bed and breakfast in our own home in France would be a great way to meet people from around the world. We indulge our love of walking and cycling and are very interested in the wildlife of the area. We enjoy hosting meals for our guests and hearing about their travels and the places they live.
Year property purchased: 2010
Why this location?
It's so peaceful and unhurried; the roads are quiet, the wildlife is amazing, the people are lovely and welcoming. Although we live in a rural location, we can drive to many towns with excellent shopping and dining facilities in a very short time. Walking or cycling the lanes with few cars is a wonderful experience in any season.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Guests love the peace and natural surroundings, but with the convenience of being central to so many of the well known (and lesser known) attractions of this part of France. Being on such a lovely river as the Druance adds to the charm of the setting, and although we are situated in a valley, the site is very open with sunshine all day long. The garden is delightful and sitting on a seat by the river just listening to the sound of the water and the birds you feel a million miles away from the frantic life happening "somewhere out there".
