My wife and I have just spent a wonderful week at La Maison du Bocage end of July 2014. The BandB is a very welcoming place to stay. Remy and Debbie are wonderful hosts. The countryside around La Maison is stunning, especially one morning when the early mist was wonderful for photographs. The grounds of La Maison are very child-friendly (although we didn't have any!) - but other children staying at the time were always out in the sandpit or the mini-pool. The only break in the silence is supplied by the countryside sounds of a cockerel and chickens in the run and a donkey adjacent to La Maison,adding to the charm, with the odd car going by. Otherwise very very peaceful. The bedroom was large enough for the two of us, the shower superb and the bed very comfortable, with clean linen and towels provided. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the bedroom, with a small fridge available outside in the corridor. La Maison is excellent as a base for travelling around the superb countryside of Normandie. We went to Avranches, Mont St Michel, Granville, Villedieu de Poeles, Vire, Sourdeval - for example and up to the beaches of Omaha and Arromanches - very moving War Graves at Omaha and Bayeux - also the Bayeux Tapestry is well worth a visit. So much to do and so little time. We had two evening meals with Debbie - both cooked wonderfully well, especially the Boeuf Stroganoff - slow cooked with mashed potato and carrots - beautiful. Well worth asking Debbie to cook for you - we spent most of the day out so did not eat in the evening every night. All in all, one of the best ever B and Bs we have ever stayed at. If you get the chance, stay here, the price is very reasonable and the ambience is wonderful. Oh yes, the black-out blinds are superb for a good night's sleep in absolute darkness. I had no trouble sleeping at all. Read the other reviews, all say the same - go to La Maison du Bocage and have a really enjoyable experience. Many thanks. If we come to the area again then La Maison will be the place to stay.
