Booked here last minute. Very good quick communication and accommodating. Comfortable rooms. Good breakfast, one of the best we have had in France - the orange marmalade was absolutely excellent. The only annoyance was that one of parties of guests was having dinner on a table and chairs right under our bedroom - after a long and tiring journey we...

We have stopped at this little gem a number of times. It is just outside Falaise which is about 45 minutes from the ferry port at Caen. Very welcoming, lovely period rooms and excellent breakfast. Very easy to get on the motorway south

This B&B is real authentic. You feel very welcome from first minute you step in. We just passed by without any reservations and were lucky to get a room. We came just before 7 pm and was asked if we want to join for dinner. 4 course dinner - British/French inspired. The food was excellent. A pleasant place to stay....

It was our second overnight stay after finding this gem of a farmhouse B&B two years ago. The rooms are comfortable and provide all you need. Have supper if you can, delicious, home prepared food eaten 'en famille' with the other guests. Peter and Su are great hosts. Traditional French breakfast with the best home made yoghurt you will ever...

This is a very comfortable B&B with free wifi, a guest lounge etc in a pleasant old farm house near Falaise. What sets it apart is the quality of the evening meal. As it is an easy trip to and from the ferry at Ouistreham, we stayed there once on our way out to the Dordogne and again on the...

We arrived for our overnight stop near Falaise so we could visit Bill the Conqueror's castle the next day.
