Our first experience in staying in France. The owners were GREAT people. More than willing to help and spoke English. Rooms were very clean, secured parking, wonderful gardens and if you are interested in WW2 history this is the place to stay. I would love to go back and stay there again. Oh yes, breakfast was amazing.

I have been staying at B&Bs in Europe and the U.S. (mostly on the West Coast) since the 70s, and if there is a nicer B&B for the money, I have yet to run across it. As they say in French this place is a "Pearl". As I really have nothing in detail to add to the other reviewers who... More

Had a wonderful visit to Normandy and one of the highlights was staying with Joelle and Loic for 2 nights at La Ferme aux Chats. They were great hosts and helpful in assisting us with directions to local sites and our next destination, Mont St. Michel. The B&B area is separated from their living space so there is a comfortable... More

We stayed 2 nights at la ferme aux chats in September 2014. The room was clean and comfortable. The D-Day attractions are just a short drive away. Joelle and Loic were very friendly and made us feel right at home. Our flight from the Baltimore-Washington area landed at 6 AM. Joelle and Loic let us check in early so that... More

Stayed one night in this lovely B&B. It sits behind gates on a road that goes through tiny Formigny. .Owners are very warm and gave us a little tour of the grounds which are extensive and just lovely. Lots of garden areas to sit and just take in the lovely country atmosphere. They have ten cats, one sweet dog, four... More

They were absolutley brilliant. We couldnt make it before they went to bed that evening and so they left our room unlocked for us so we could turn in after hours. Very interesting couple who own this place and know the history of the area well. Highlights were the comfortable accomodation, excellent location and wonderful breakfast incl the home made... More

This was my first stay at a B&B so I was not sure what to expect but the experience was great. As other reviewers mentioned, Joelle and her husband were very welcoming when arrived. My parents, myself and my husband stayed one night while visiting Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery and this location is very convenient to both locations.... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay in Normandy at La Ferme Aux Chats. We really enjoyed our stay here! The service provided by Joelle and her husband was excellent! They were able to give us several recommendations and information about sites to see and places to eat. They both spoke very good English, which was helpful to us.... More

My husband and I stayed one night at La Ferme aux Chats. It was a little more expensive than other B&Bs in town, but - unlike them - it was available last minute, so that is where we stayed. I can't attest to the value here compared to other B&Bs in the area (most quoted approx 25 euros less), but... More

We stayed with Joelle and Loic for two nights last week while visiting The D Day landing sights. Their location is very convenient. The tiny village of Formigny is just off the major east-west highway and very close to Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer. Finding them was easy, they are situated across the road from... More
