We stayed only one night and were late arriving but Joe and Vivienne were waiting for us and gave us some very welcome drinks and we had a lovely couple of hours chatting about the château and various things. The chateau is lovely and perfectly furnished with some very interesting objects. We stayed in the beautiful room which is furnished in a traditional style. The bed was very comfy and a lovely room. We then had a lovely breakfast and should hâve been on the road early but we were still to busy chatting with Joe and Vivienne. The children has fun running around outside with the dogs and horses. We wished we had been able to stay longer and thoroughly recommend it. They are both a wealth of knowledge of the area and wider France and gave us so much useful information. We would definitely visit again.

Easy access from Caen and a short distance from Bayeaux and the Normandy D-Day landing beaches. La Ducrie is a small chateau where the dauphin Louis XI was born. We slept in the same room as the dauphin which was also used as a Nazi headquarters with bullet holes in the doors and some very interesting stories by the very hospitable owners. Near St Lo and beautiful flower markets and nice restaurants. A very pleasurable experience.

Get historical home, good location for many of Normandy's sites but it is made special by Joe and Vivienne. I have stayed on three occasions once for almost two weeks because I liked it so much. Joe also gives wonderful historic Normandy beach tours - very informative.

La Ducrie is a simply magical place! The castle is full of history and unique nooks and crannies, and the property is beautiful. But what makes it so special are the owners, Joe and Vivienne (and of course, their dogs, Lottie and Ghost!). They welcome you into their home with a warmth and graciousness that was highly unexpected at a B&B, and made for a very enjoyable stay. Joe's knowledge of the history and stories of D-Day and the surrounding area is quite impressive, and he tells his stories with an entertaining Scottish wit sure to make you smile. Vivienne is simply lovely, and her cooking is outstanding. My husband and I and our two teenage children enjoyed two dinners with them that were just fantastic and accompanied by great conversation. I don't think we have ever eaten so much delicious food in one sitting! I would be remiss not to mention Pavel, their on-site staffer who is sweet and very helpful. You will not be disappointed if you stay at La Ducrie - we were sad to leave our new friends. We only hope the wind will take us to Normandy again!
