“perfect in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

The room was tranquil and equipped with everything that you could want. the gardens are fantastic.Josette is the perfect lady who can't do enough to help. Jean-pierre's knowledge of the d-day landings is amazing as well as his almost perfect english. breakfast was lovely and we especially enjoyed the variety of Josette's delicious home-made marmalades and jams.we will definitley return.

Wonderful hosts in a beautiful and historic setting. Jean Pierre will regale you with a very interesting history going back centuries and and more recent incidents during WW II. Homemade jams and jellies were a highlight of a delicious breakfast. Wished our stay had been longer. Be sure to visit the Museum off the town square, it is very well put together.

One of the best B&B that I have stayed at. The owners are wonderful, caring and very warm.
A must stay at.

The proprietors Josette and Jean Pierre are in a class very few people achieve. From the very first minute we arrived, we were treated as family. The Inn and surrounding areas are rich in history, that is explained in detail by Jean Pierre. The breakfasts are delicious, especially Josset's home made jams.
The rooms are very well appointed, immaculate bathrooms, comfortable beds and very relaxing grounds. Anyone who does not stay at this Inn is missing out on a great experience.

Josette and Jean Pierre are the most perfect hosts. From the moment we arrived (wine and cheese and chocolates!) to our final breakfast of freshly baked casserole and homemade jams and marmalades, we felt as though we were visiting the home of friends. I highly recommend Castel Provence for a long weekend in Normandy. The location is perfect for visiting the Normandy beaches and museums and Mont St. Michel.

We stayed at Castel Provence while in Normandy during a two week tour of France. It was far and away the highlight of our trip. Josette and Jean-Pierre, the proprietors, were exceptionally warm and lovely people. They advised us on our day trips around Normandy, suggesting the best times to visit certain sites, directing us to the most interesting ones and the most convenient parking lots, and helping to ensure that we made the best of our time. They helped us with restaurant reservations, and made our inability to speak French far less of an obstacle than it otherwise would have been. Immediately on our arrival, they invited us to share an apertif and some local delicacies. We shared stories and learned much about the history and culture of Ver sur Mer, Provence, and all of France. Each morning they served us elaborate and delicious breakfasts with local specialties and Josette's own outstanding jams. Their home is beautiful and the guest rooms immaculate, with all modern conveniences. When we had an incident with our passports at the end of our stay, Josette and Jean-Pierre went far out of their way to help us. All in all, I cannot recommend Castel Provence more highly. It is a truly beautiful place.

Thank you Josette and Jean-Pierre. We hope to see you again soon.
