Stayed 2 nights with Joelle and Loic while visiting Normandy. When I confirmed our reservations before leaving home, Joelle and Loic e-mailed several attachments about attractions in the area, all of which were very helpful in planning our trip. When we arrived, we were met with a warm welcome and a tour of the converted farm. Our room was immaculate... More

This is a charming B&B owned by Joëlle and Loïc. Located across the church in Formigny, it is only 3km from Omaha Beach. The couple converted an older French farm and it is beautiful. They are very proud of their property and will share their garden with you. There are a number of cats, hence the name but I never... More

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, quaint bed and breakfast with two of our closest friends in May 2015. The owners are delightful and speak excellent English. They welcomed us warmly and the b&b's location is perfect for visiting the beaches of Normandy and surrounding areas. The house is exactly what you would expect in France...ancient stone with...

My mother was fortunate to spend three weeks at this wonderful B&B during her visit to France at Christmas time last year. A newly renovated groundfloor room awaited her with a super ensuite shower room, tastefully furnished and lovely and warm. Breakfast was a feast which would keep you full all day with a huge choice from homemade breads, jams... More

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
