I have spent a week in the Jardin Gorbeau in Etretat and have had a wonderful time. I have found the decoration of the Bed and Breakfast very tasteful, the house is full of art and and the service always attentive and discreet at the same time. The bedrooms are cosy and beautiful. The garden is full of roses and... More

My husband and I stayed at Jon Cooper’s Jardin Gorbeau for 3 days in early August 2013. We had a fantastic time in Etretat during the busy French “vacances” thanks to our peaceful sanctuary in Jon’s garden and guesthouse, a half-block from the beach. Our room was very comfortable, quiet, imaginatively decorated with a lovely view over the garden. The... More

Not only was this lovely area of France a revelation, but so was the discovery of Jardin Gorbeau in Etretat. This very French B&B is totally charming in every respect. From the initial warm and informative welcome by Jon to the quirky but comfortable rooms (or suites as they call them) you are captivated by the relaxing vibe. The location... More

Jon and Ric were excellent hosts. Their hideaway, close to the beach, the cliffs, and the center of the town, is an oasis of calm. The garden is charming. The room was comfortable. Jon's breakfasts featured fabulous, home-made croissants. He guided us to three outstanding restaurants in town and gave us good advice about the surrounding area. He is very... More

It's pretty much what the website promises. Everything is really good quality (rooms, food, information, help). At the same time it's relaxing, quiet and you've got privacy. Close to beach, so very easy to quickly go back home. We loved it and hope to visit again some time!

For us it was the first trip to Etretat. In August the village is extremly crowded and the garden at Jardin Gorbeau is a fantastic hideout. There you can really chill-out!!! The owners, Jon and Rikk, are very nice and friendly and really trying everything to make you a pleasent stay. On Saturday we had dinner at the place cooked... More

... in the Eye of the touristic hurricane! This description fits best when You enter Jardin Gorbeau. Etreteat is beautifull and (therefor) touristic. Watch out: there are thousands of tourists in the town and othe cliffs. The beach is nice but sometimes (esp. during the weekends) crowded. Jardin Gorbeau offers the opposite: Quietness (exept the seagulls) and high quality on... More

We arrived after a long plane / metro / train / bus trek, sweaty and exhausted. Our room wasn't quite ready (we were early) but Jon, the owner, quickly set us up with a refreshing whirlpool bath and some aprés bath chocolate croissants. Suddenly we felt human again! The rooms are very nice, if not gigantic. The garden is fantastic,... More

If you are planning a gateaway at Etretat, this place is highly recommended. It's two minutes to the beach with the famous cliffs and five minutes to the little village center, but once you're inside the hotel it's very peaceful. Jardin Gorbeau comes with comfy rooms, delicious breakfast, a great garden and heavenly cocktails and the hosts Jon and Rick... More
