I've been riding motorcycles in UK/Europe since '09, usually April or May. This year, the wife and I decided to come in July to catch part of the Tour de France, so instead of our usual tour, we picked a central location to base out of. We found La Motte, near the village of St. Hilaire du Harcouet, run by... More

We booked two nights at La Motte to complete our holiday, following a week further south and are so glad we did!!! From the moment we pulled on to the drive, we felt like we were at home. Carol and Bill greeted us and then a cup of tea was offered (beer if you prefer) in the converted barn. The... More

Found Bill and Carol at La Motte about 10 years ago on a round France motorcycle trip, and have been popping back every since. As testified to by other travellers - always a warm welcome, great food (definitely take up the half-board as the three course dinner is a delight after a day on the road) and very comfortable accommodation....

The stunning countryside also added to the experience. Looking forward... More

Character French property run by an English couple as an absolutely unique place to stay. Described as a B&B, we were delighted that we chose to stay half board. The three course evening meal with drinks was excellent. I am vegetarian and was well catered for. The meal was served like a dinner party, with all guests on one large... More

My friends and I stayed for a few days whilst on a motorcycle trip to France. We were made very welcome, accommodation was fantastic, food excellent, and had a lovely relaxing time. Got good advice from owners of what to see locally.

We stayed at La Motte for hubby's birthday on a cold, grey weekend in May. Great rooms, great food, lovely area and fantastic to have some reliable recommendations for places to visit (Fougeres is certainly recommended!). The only small downside was problems connecting to the free wifi, but then we get plagued by that in rural areas over here in... More
