We fell in love with Le Lieu Besnard, Yula and Brian during our first stay last year. As seen, when we returned this year with our teenage granddaughter and great-niece, this was our first choice, and no one was disappointed! The girls thoroughly enjoyed their private room, (as did we!) and we all enjoyed the lounge area where we congregated... More

It came as no surprise that my wife and I were sad to leave The Old French Farmhouse. From the time we arrived until we left (we stayed 7 nights) we were treated like long time friends who had come to visit. There were wonderful breakfasts (Brian went out every morning to the local Boulangerie to get fresh croissants, baguettes,... More

My Husband and I spent a few nights here in January 2011 and we were so delighted to have been greeted by Brian and Yula. Their thoughtful and charming home made us feel so relaxed and they were the sweetest hosts! We loved our stay and would go back to their B&B in a heartbeat if ever in the area... More

Once in a while, one discovers a gem unexpectedly. This was our experience at Le Lieu Besnard, near La Cambe, France. We almost don't want to give an excellent review because we may not be able to return if it is discovered by others! Brian and Yula Lawrence are awesome hosts with a genuine warmth and caring attitude for those... More

Love does not begin to describe my feelings for Le Lieu Besnard. Not just for the B&B but also for the lovely couple, Yula & Brian that owns the place. The rustic & quaint farmhouse has been restored to exactly what one would want when staying there. It feels like home. The bedrooms and bathrooms are cozy, clean and very... More

I can only echo previous reviews about this wonderful B&B. Brian and Yula are superb hosts, able to provide information about the area, ideas for visits, route maps and excellent restaurant choices. The house and rooms are simply perfect with so many personal touches which made our stay a real treat. Yula must provide one of the best and varied... More

We stayed with Brian and Yula at The Farm for four nights and it was delightful. They arranged for us to have a tour of Normandy beaches with John Moules. He was an excellent, knowledgeable guide. Le Lieu Besnard is a bit isolated, but that is part of its charm. The owners have spent 8 years renovating this old farmhouse... More

This is the best place to stay if you are touring the Normandy Beaches of D day. It's very convenient and well decorated. Breakfast was wonderful with a variety of bread, croissants, fruit, cereals and cheeses. The owners Brian & Yula Lawrence were wonderful and provided suggestions for dinner and directions to the beaches. A memorable stay.

We were very surprised about this place, since it was much, much better than we expected. Actually, it was a perfect stay, we really enjoyed it! Our hosts, Brian and Yula were so nice and friendly that we felt at home from the first moment on. The house, a former working dairy farm, is lovingly restored and beautifully furnished. We... More

We stayed at Le Lieu Besnard for 6 nights in beautiful La Cambe. Yula and Brian were the most wonderful hosts! The house is beautiful and charming, the grounds are amazing, and breakfast was simply delicious. Brian provided excellent directions and helpful recommendations for restaurants (La Maree was fabulous!). Their location is also great because of its proximity to Bayeux... More
