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

This is an utterly charming B&B in the countryside just a few miles from the D-Day beaches. Joelle has turned the barn wing of her ancient home into a B&B with four bedrooms, all furnished with antiques and also modern conveniences like en suite bathrooms and hairdryers. There is also a sitting room stocked with D-Day tourist and history books.... More

Great location -- literally 5 minutes from Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. All of the other major D Day beaches and memorials are also very close. Very lovely B&B. We were two couples travelling together and both had large, comfortable rooms. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast each morning -- highlighted by homebread breads and jams and jellies. Our hostess...

This morning I woke to the sound of church bells ringing, birds singing and the morning song of a rooster. Out my window, from the comfort of bed I can see the warm colours from the rising sun begin to paint light across the garden and neighbouring farm buildings. If you are looking for peace in the french countryside, you... More

This BnB is in an excellent location to museums, Omaha beach memorial, the American Cemetery, and very close to all other beaches/sites related to WWII/D-Day. The couple who owns this fantastically warm and clean BnB are friendly and you should make some time to sit and share a cup of coffee/tea with them in their large garden. We actually walked... More

I've stayed in a lot of B&Bs, and this one is at or near the top. Lovely rooms, great breakfast, very VERY friendly hosts. Quiet location. Nice cats & dog (if you like.) No restaurant nearby, you have to drive down to the beach, which is not far.

Our family was welcomed with open arms. Very friendly owners, beautiful grounds, along with an amazing breakfast! Great centralized location if traveling to the Normandy points of interest. Both Omaha Beach and American Cemetery are within walking distance or less than 5 minutes by car! We stayed this past June and immediately placed our reservations again for this coming June!!!
