My stay here is mostly good – hospitable proprieters, ample parking, near good food, nice scenery and a star gazing enabled room. Firstly,getting there was not very difficult. Our natsav got us there without problems but some preparations are needed using streetview and google map if you do not have a natsav. ER is located at the corner of a... More

Selected by us thanks to the excellent reviews posted on TA, and the proximity to Le Mont St Michel in southern Normandy. How fortunate for us to stay here for 2 nights. Madam Elham and her husband Christian greeted us profusely with a gratis welcome drink on the terrace. He spent several years teaching at Edinburgh University and has a... More

M. & Mme. Ricoux warmly welcomed us to their home with a drink on the terrace, also inviting us to enjoy their lovely garden at leisure. Monsieur speaks excellent English and can advise on places to eat etc. Avranches is within easy strolling distance of the house - it's an interesting town with plenty to see, and a selection of...

We stayed two nights in a family room in this warm and friendly accommodation. Our room was clean, bright and tastefully decorated and the master bed itself was huge and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful providing a welcome drink and taking the time to interact with their guests. It is located in Avranches which turned out to... More

It is easy to find fault if one is so inclined. We wanted a charming B&B with a level of hospitality that would make this part of our trip truly memorable and Elham & Christian Ricoux provided us with just that. Any shortcomings are too insignificant to mention and were far outweighed by the charm and excellent good humour of... More

We stayed at this lovely Chambres d'hôtes en route to our friends, it ticked all the boxes, for us for cleanliness, comfort, and friendliness, the owners are very friendly and speak good English, should you require them to do so, breakfast was plentiful and the preserves were home made. It was a little difficult to find, and parking was a... More

We spent five nights at this charming historical Norman B&B, hosted by the charming Ms Elham Ricoux, and gracious Mr Christian Stewart. They took great care of us, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Beautiful memories of an exquisite, late in the year, pilgrimage to Normandie.

My husband and I stayed one night in Avranches last September. After seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to book a room at this quaint little B&B, and it ended up being one of the most memorable stays on our trip to France. Elham and Christian were so welcoming and friendly when we arrived, and the room was... More

I need to start off by saying that I am a bit sceptical when I read so many excellent Tripadvisor reviews about a place as it can be a bit of a let down when you get there, but I decided to book this place on the back of them. I'm so glad I did! This was a gem in... More

We received a very warm welcome from Elham & Christian and our room was very cosy and comfortable. Elham booked us into a lovely Bistro for dinner the first night which was within walking distance and we were invited to share a meal with them and had drinks on the terrace in the evening while we enjoyed overlooking their beautiful...
