Le Vivier is a wonderful B&B. Our hosts, Marie and Pascual, were gracious, accommodating, informative, helpful, and hospitable in every way. Their amazing home has been recently updated/renovated, and combines style with modern touches. The seafood feast was everything we'd hoped for - every kind of seafood you'd imagine on a seafood menu, and a few you may not have... More

Beginning with a very warm welcome from our gracious hostess, Marie Collet, my sister and I enjoyed staying in this charming house in early July. Its location was perfect for us as it was in such close proximity to the seafront and this allowed us great beach walks. Marie offered us bikes if we wished. The overall ambience in this... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week in June. We wanted a convenient location for visiting all the WW2 sites plus Bayeaux, Mont St Michel and Giverny, somewhere with a bit of character and within walking distance of restaurants - Le Vivier ticked every box and more. Marie and her husband Pascal couldn't have been more welcoming and... More

This B&B in a 200 year old mansion, lovingly renovated about 250 yards from Sword Beach was our base for visiting the Normandie sites. Marie, the owner, was gracious and very helpful suggesting restaurants and sites. Her breakfasts were a perfect French petit dejeuner served on classic china with a table setting with jams for the just baked breads. The... More

Our stay at Le Vivier was one of our highlights in France. Marie is a gracious, warm and welcoming host. The extra " touches" that are provided truly personalise the experience. For breakfast, the home made jams, baked cakes and scones as well as the freshly brewed pots of tea and coffee along with good company were wonderful. Marie and... More

Such beautiful accomodation and Marie is such a warm, hospitable hostess. We stayed a few nights with our teenage children and had a lovely time. Everything about the accomodation is first class from the room decor to the breakfast. Marie is a lovely hostess and speaks great English! Would highly recommend this venue.

I would highly recommend this B&B in Lion-sur-mer, for three huge reasons: the rooms are comfortable, the host - Marie - is lovely, and the breakfast's are excellent. Marie goes above and beyond to make your stay exactly how you would hope it to be. She makes homemade jams, and something new each day for breakfast (alongside the standard pastries).... More

Beautiful B&B - most comfortable with very accommodating hosts. Marie (for [us] Americans, her name is pronounced mare-ee-aye) and her husband (Pascal) have done a wonderful job of renovating their home - with the B&B bedrooms on the 3rd level (2nd floor). The beds are very comfortable! My sister, husband and I shared the 2 bedroom suite - great that... More

Please take my word for it: once you have stayed at Le Vivier you will never want to leave! We were given such a wonderfully warm welcome by Marie, and made to feel totally at home from the minute we walked through the front door of this stylish and perfecly restored maison de maitre. The breakfasts were so delicious, the... More
