Le Vivier is a unique little B&B. It's run by Marie - a warm and welcoming hostes, who came out to welcome us at the stairs the minute she saw the car pulling in. "Welcome to my home - consider it yours". That is exactly how it feels at Le Vivier! It is beautifully decorated, the rooms are spectacular and the breakfast homemade with cakes, scones and home made jams. If we ever come back to Normandie, we are definitely staying at Le Vivier again!

Everything was great. The room was amazing, the breakfast delicious (every morning we got a different treat) and the tips from Marie were more then helpful. We planned to stay for two days but we liked it so much we decided to stay two more days.

We used Le Vivier as our HQ for a visit to my wife’s ancestral village and the D-Day historical sites. Marie is one of the most charming and helpful people in the world! We love Marie, her family and her dogs. Pascal’s gardens are beautiful. The house is updated but retains plenty of old world ambience. The town is small and you need Marie’s help in restaurant reservations. She has great influence. When we tried to do things ourselves it was not very successful. The gate is narrow, so fold in your car mirrors!

My husband and I were given a very warm welcome on our arrival to Le Vivier by our hostess Marie, who has made a wonderful home for her guests. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable and Marie has an attentive eye for detail which makes you feel very much at home. Her breakfasts were delicious and she is a great cook! Marie also gave us a lot of information and tips on what to see and do whilst we were in the area. This is a gem of a place and merci beaucoup Marie for making us feel so welcome!

My sister, brother-in-law and I enjoyed four nights at Le Vivier. Marie is such a gracious hostess and goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are delightful with fully updated bathrooms and warm, homey touches. The breakfasts were so delicious - I'm going to miss them!!! Le Vivier has a beautiful garden with patio furniture that beckons you outside to enjoy.
