Character French property run by an English couple as an absolutely unique place to stay. Described as a B&B, we were delighted that we chose to stay half board. The three course evening meal with drinks was excellent. I am vegetarian and was well catered for. The meal was served like a dinner party, with all guests on one large... More

My friends and I stayed for a few days whilst on a motorcycle trip to France. We were made very welcome, accommodation was fantastic, food excellent, and had a lovely relaxing time. Got good advice from owners of what to see locally.

We stayed at La Motte for hubby's birthday on a cold, grey weekend in May. Great rooms, great food, lovely area and fantastic to have some reliable recommendations for places to visit (Fougeres is certainly recommended!). The only small downside was problems connecting to the free wifi, but then we get plagued by that in rural areas over here in... More

We're getting to be regulars, our third year as a stop over on the way to mid France, and on the way back. Bill and Carol are perfect hosts providing comfy accommodation, along with great meals and a very welcome cold beer or two. Organising a motorcycle trip is never easy juggling with other stop overs, ferry times, and various... More

The arrival of 4 wet, tired and miserable bikers was greeted with such friendliness and good humour that we immediately felt better. Covered bike parking, comfortable accommodation, superb food and nice location were the icing on the cake. If you're in the area on a biking holiday its a must. Thanks Bill and Carol.

Bill & Carol are superb hosts, and the B&B felt like home as soon as we arrived. Very well catered for motorbiking and in the ideal location for touring normandy and brittany. We couldn't have asked for more - such caring hosts with lots of character! :)

Highly Recommended: Returned to La Motte and more importantly Bill and Carol for 3rd stay. Stayed 8 nights to relax and explore the local area. Friendly, warm and relaxed hosts, more importantly a great laugh! Carol is an excellent cook, filling breakfasts and wonderful dinners (on request): tasty home cooked English food. The rooms are clean and homely, and you... More

Stayed here for one night last Friday at the start of our two week road trip. A great welcome from Carol and Bill awaited us, even though it was after 10pm. A lovely home from home with all those lovely quirky French touches, and a great breakfast to send us on our way. Well recommended :)
