We spent 3 wonderful nights at the Chateau (4 adults and 2 kids). Alain and Annemarie were amazing hosts and made us all feel so welcome. Our breakfasts were filled with delicious food, home made cakes and best of all terrific conversations with our host. They shared with us restaurant suggestions, history of the chateau and ideas for places to... More

We spent 9 nights at the Chateau. Alain & Anne Marie Cantel gave us a warm welcome at the start and then looked after our every need throughout our stay (wish it could have been longer). They were very helpful is advising us of places to visit and restaurants to try each day, very useful. The Chateau is beautifully and... More

On our trip to Normandy, my wife and I spent three nights with the Cantels at Chateau des Riffets - a lovely home that is gracious and tastefully appointed. We used the chateau as a base for excursions to see the beaches of Normandy, the Bayeux tapestry, and Mont Saint-Michel. Perhaps we could have stayed at a more central location,... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults, three children aged 9-14) stayed at Chateau des Riffets in August 2014. We loved our stay at a Chateau that offers beautiful surroundings and good, warm company. Alain et Anne-Marie make Chateau des Riffets the gem that it is. The house itself is decorated with many beautiful pieces of furniture, but it is Alain... More

We were here to support our daughter for para-dressage at WEG in Caen. By the time we left this gorgeous place, after only 3 nights, we felt like we had been treated as old friends as Alain and Anne-Marie waved us good-bye. The rooms / suites are beautiful and comfortable, and our daughter's success was celebrated by our hosts, who... More

Our four nights in mid July at Chateau des Riffets will be a beautiful life time memory for our family. The rooms are decorated in a genuine and stylish manner and are very comfortable. The location allowed us to visit Le Mont Saint Michel to the west and Honfleur to the northwest east. With guidance from Anne-Marie and Alain we... More

Alain and Anne-Marie are excellent hosts, with lots of local knowledge to share. Recommended restaurants were good, although some way from the chateau. We were very lucky in the weather this July which has been very warm, so returning to Riffets to the swimming pool was a real pleasure. We felt well looked after and really enjoyed our stay. Finding... More

We had a great stay with the Cantels. The house is lovely, it's a proper country house. The rooms are big with wonderful decorations. We came with our 3 children who thought it was a real treat. We deliberately didn't want an Ibis or Novotel experience and were rewarded with stories that we'll talk about for ages. A wonderful start... More

To really experience the flavor of France, we (a family of 4 with 2 children, ages 7 and 9) wanted to stay in an old French country house rather than an impersonal hotel in the city. Also, we had never traveled abroad with our children and since we do not speak French very well, we thought having a local contact... More
