We booked one night here as a stop off on our way to Cherbourg. It's an old chateau filled with antiques and quaint bits and pieces everywhere you turn. The entrance is a little sudden but we had been forewarned by other reviewers and spotted it easily enough. It is also quite narrow so watch your car! The chateau is... More

Quiet, clean, charming, and centrally located. The hosts, Martine and Bernard LeClerc, are knowledgeable and helpful about restaurants, museums and directions, and were more than accommodating. This is an ideal location for visiting Mont St. Michel and the coast.

I stayed in Le Jardin Secret for two nights while holidaying in France. Mr. & Mrs. Le Clerc were excellent hosts and a model of hospitality. The provided a very pleasant stay. I would have preferred a more English or Australian style breakfast, but what they did provide for breakfast was nice. Mr. Le Clerc drove me to the train... More

To find accommodation of this standard anywhere is a real treat, to find Jardin Secret for our first three nights in France was just right for this holiday. From the delightful hospitality of our hosts to the very tasteful furnishings and decor we were constantly pleased. By way of suggested improvements, our hosts are clearly seeking constantly to improve their... More

We stayed here for one night. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. We were in the annex room which was lovely but with all the rain the floor became quite a mess (the beautiful grounds give way to no paved walkway). Bathroom was adequate but nothing to wow about. Breakfast was average. Location was good. Overall the place from the outside... More

When we travelled to Mont. St. Michel, we wanted to get there easily and quickly from a local B&B. We chose Jardin Secret in the village of Marcey-les-Greves, and we couldn't have chosen better! Located about 25 minutes from Mont. St. Michel, this suited us very well. We had seen the stunning pictures of the residence on Tripadvisor, but we... More

The service was very good… we had a late arrival (21h30), and we were still welcome at their ‘table d’hôtes’. We felt immediately at home. The diner was ok – good price-value. (25€ for 3 courses, incl wine & apero). We slept in ‘le nid’, in the garden… This is a nice room, recently updated, with a very good (but... More

Bernard L, Propriétaire at Jardin Secret, responded to this review

Thanks for this assessment. We are sorry for the presence of the small animal in the attic, and have remedied this. For the bed, what a pity because you have not stated us your large size. We had you proposed the room "libellule" (bed of 160).... We are surprised for the opinion on the cleanlness of the room because we... More
