Friendly, comfortable hotel in quiet, picturesque location. Advisable to book a table in the excellent restaurant if wanting to eat in, it was full during our stay and we had trouble finding an alternative!

Spent two nights there with a bicycle tour and it was fabulous. It is small so we were practically the only people there. The dinners were excellent wtih fresh food (we even saw the chef cutting the herbs from the garden out our window). It was a short bike ride to the ocean beach and a short walk to the... More

Fantastic tastefully decorated small hotel in St Germain Sur Ay. Might be too minimalist (i.e no hairdryer) for a long stay but lovely for a brief sojourn. Comfortable bed. Blissfully quiet at night and rural sounds to wake up to - birds and the local donkey braying! We had dinner in the restaurant, which was of the highest quality, and... More

Arrived quite late on a motorcycle. Made to feel very welcome. Rooms tastefully decorated. We had the set menu for dinner. Absolutely superb as was the bottle of wine. All at reasonable prices. Would very much recommend.

Stayed at this lovely inn on a cycling tour and did not want to leave. The owners were the epitome of gracious host/hostess and they created a peaceful, easy elegance at their farm. Nineteen of us stayed for 2 nights and we were wined and dined with some of the best and most creative dishes ever served - to compete... More

Superb cuisine - excellent ambience, friendly and polite staff. The menu is imaginative and very well done with quality ingredients. In a great location but easy to find. We will be sure to visit again very soon. Recommend +++=

We are already planning to return to this magic place. And as others mentioned before, the landscape around is just stunning! They helped us to organize this increadible delicious wine we... More

We stayed at La Ferme des Mares in July for 4 nights. We could not have wished for a better break. Sonya and Mike who own and run the hotel were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to look after us. It was our first holiday with our 7 months old daughter and had therefore booked the family... More

Found on the internet, we thought it seemed and ideal place to meet up with family coming over from Portsmouth to Cherbourg. So off we went for a few days to check it out. Beautiful hotel and very peaceful but unfortunately the compliments end here. A supplement of 3€ per person for breakfast in our room, never seen that before.... More

Fabulous food, very nicely decorated rooms, in a stunning location and friendly owners who speak English and French. A little out of the way for families, but very close fairly to the beach. I would highly recommend this to anyone and will revisit
