“Simply the best b&b ever tested!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My boyfriend and I decided to visit the famous area of France where took place the landing and Dday. We booked a night with Laurent and Patricia who welcomed us when we arrived à 7pm with cider of Normandy. Their house is completly decorated in relation with 1944 and the landing but with a lot of taste! Laurent knows everything about this time of History and guided us the day after on the battle fields, omaha beach and American military cemetary. He knows so much that the visit was amazing! I also forgot to mention Patricia's breakfast: the best I ever tried in à French B&B with croissant, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin, egg any style, frech orange and apple juice and so much more. The room was quite as the house is in the countryside and the owners made me feel at home immediately. I will definitely come back as you need at least 4 days to see all the surroundings!
