Fantastic place! Wonderful hosts! After a five stars breakfast you get your daily briefing on all the site you wish to visit. For the evening Pat and Laurent will share their experience to guide you to the best restaurants. We really enjoyed the stay, full of good moments. It is the place to go in Normandy!
