“Beautiful facilities and an outstanding welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have recently returned from a brief visit to Normandy where, with several other friends, we stayed at Le Clos du Quesnay. No one was disappointed our welcome from the moment we arrived until our departure two days later was excellent. Jean-Francios and Sabine take great pride in what they have achieved in creating a lovely location to stay whether visiting this beautiful part of Normandy or just passing through. All the rooms are well appointed and exceedingly comfortable, for something really different the gypsy caravans are both accommodating and fun particularly for the family. The best has to to said of the magnificent breakfast table adorned with home made breads, jams fruit grown by the family....not to be missed. Outstanding quality and great value.

Stayed in one of the gipsy Caravans for 4 nights - tremendous
Wonderful hosts, great hospitality and suggestions for trips. Nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was superb.
Dinner taken on 2 of 4 nights was great.
19 French/Dutch/Brits/Belgians sitting around the big dining table with a log fire and generous wine and aperitifs - all in Europe together now.
I feel like hosts Jean-Francoise and Sabine are now real friends, would hate to think my wife and I will never visit again. I have stayed in a lot of B&B's .. best ever

Room Tip: Other guests seemed to like their large rooms, we wanted to try the Gypsy caravans and they were gre...

This place has to be France's best kept secret! A most beautiful place to rest, relax and recuperate and to enjoy the finest Normandie cuisine and the very best of French hospitality.

This was our 2nd time here and if anything it was even better than the first time! Sabine's cooking is good enough to grace a top restaurant and Jean-Francois's repartee is excellent, given English is not his first language.

The bedrooms are beautiful and the environment is so relaxing.

Now any qualms you may have about enjoying an evening meal with the hosts should be cast aside - it is the highlight of the "Clos du Quesnay" experience!

Frankly, neither my wife nor myself can wait to go back! As others have written, the hosts quickly become more than just hosts - they become your friends!

Room Tip: ALl the ones we have seen and slept in are great!

We stayed overnight on our way back to the Channel Tunnel - some 2 hours distant by motorway. We had booked a caravan with a little reservation on our part, but other reviews suggested it would be OK - and it certainly was! They are very compact, but brilliantly designed with everything one needs for an overnight stay. Not sure about a longer time with children in one however..........
The hospitality from Sabine & Jean-Francoise was excellent, and the evening meal with good company was superb. Breakfast & parking arrangements were very good too.

Room Tip: We heard good reports about their inside rooms too, but the caravans (4 of them) are a very interest...

If you are travelling in France from Calas, a stay at Clos Du Quesnay is a must. As you would expect, the rooms are presented to a superb standard, with lovely en suite facilities, but the real plus is the great welcome extended by the owners , Jean-Francois and Sabine.

They are very proficient, linguistically, in welcoming Engllish speaking guests, so there is no need to be nervous if you don't speak any French. Families are welcomed no matter how small or old the children, and family rooms are available.

Perhaps the nicest thing though is that an evening meal is offered, which is superbly cooked by Sabine herself , with any interesting local produces, and is very welcome after a long drive through France, and prevents you having to go out looking for alternatives. It s a sociable experience, with the chance to catch up with other guests and share experiences. However the meal is not compulsory if you d not wish to take advantage of it.

This was our third year staying at Clos Du Quesnay, and it is now not just an overnight stop but a part of our holiday, and our hosts are now more friends than anything else.

We will definitely be returning, and thoroughly recommend the bed and breakfast to any traveller.

Room Tip: Every room is superbly clean. Jean Francois will place you in the one most suitable to your needs, a...

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our time here. The owners are very friendly and they have done an amazing job creating this place to stay, the gardens were beautiful. The rooms are gorgeous and individually styled and then there are the Gypsy caravans which look amazing. They have made this a little sanctuary of peace and quiet and you can tell it has been a labour of love for them. The breakfast was a huge collection of home cooked and locally sourced goodies..

We were driving down to the Loire Region and decided to stay here en route on the 1st night of our holiday. We booked a family room and it was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable and the room was beautifully decorated and spacious. Although it was a family room the adults room was seperated from the childrens which meant we all got some privacy (although the door could easily have been left open if you wanted it to)
The gardens are wonderful and the gypsy caravans looked like a very romanctic place to stay... maybe next time.
We did not eat in the evening but the visitors book was full of compliments on the food and it looked like people had a great time. The breakfast was delicious and was full of homemade goodies. This really is a lovely place to stay and you are made to feel very welcome.
