“Very pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here in early August for B & B on our way further South and were very pleasantly surprised. Beautiful location, grounds, Tudor-style buildings, very 'quirky', full of charm and it's own security gates! Our room had subdued lighting and was very colourfully decorated on an 'African' theme. There was a TV but unfortunately no tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was lovely with a multi-jet shower (which I was looking forward to using, but unfortunately couldn't get the jets to work and the shower was a trickle!) . The rooms lead out onto a communal covered terrace with chairs and tables, overlooking pasture with donkeys and sheep- lovely!
We were greeted by an 'effervescent' French lady, an extremely welcoming
and enthusiastic hostess. The breakfast is taken in a separate 'quirky', brightly decorated out-building, again looked after by the jolly lady that greeted us. There was the usual choice of French bread/croissant, yoghurt, french cheeses, eggs and preserves, with lovely coffee and a selection of teas. I'm very happy we stumbled upon this delightful B & B and would recommend it.
(However ask for ground floor room if unstable on your feet, as the upstairs is accessed by a steep, metal flight of outdoor steps! )

Can't speak for the hotel section but the Gite are well equipped and relatively spacious. The grounds and surrounds are peaceful and relaxing with a small "farm" donkeys sheep geese and ducks. Small lake full of fish which are tame enough to eat out of your hand. Home baked breakfast croisssants and coffee to die for but really this is a self catering location and if the weather is good there are tables and chairs outside the Gite and a BBQ picnic area. The village of Pont L'Eveque is a 5 min drive with a plethora of boulangerie, pattiserie supermarkets etc even a poissonerie all with marvellous fresh produce. If you want a hotel with hotel facilities this is not for you but if you want to cook for yourself or eat out it is perfect and Madame Ghislaine is a lovely lady who will make you feel welcome.

Room Tip: Ideally choose one of the ground floor Gite

I made a reservation to this hotel. The conditions states that you could cancel 2 days before. Also states that you have to contact the hotel directly for all purposes.

Because of a health problem we had to cancel all our trip to France and I informed all hotels of cancelation by email.
Ferme de Geffosse didn't respond but after couple of days they charged our card with 600Eur (the full amount including all period and meals).

I thought it was a mistake and i've sent an email. The mailbox replied that the inbox is full.

After a retry they replied that they consider that conditions are met for the charge and states that i have to talk to booking.com.

Booking.com didn't charge credit cards. And in this case the charge was made by the hotel.

I will have to make a letter to the Interpol for the unauthorised use of my creditcard.

If you want to risk to get frauded by this hotel or pay for something you don't get or for something you've canceled, you could make a reservation...

A group of us stayed here last week - the consensus was that the suites/gites were more preferable than the bedrooms, being more spacious (ours had kitchen, sitting area, 2 bedrooms , loo and bathroom) and much brighter. Breakfast was great if you wanted croissants/rolls and jam, dear Madame Ghislaine didn't mind when the next couple of mornings we arrived with beautiful fresh fruit from the local market and yoghurt to eat with her wonderful coffee! Lovely situation in the middle of the Normandy countryside, very rural - although if the wind was in the wrong direction you could hear the motorway at night!

Room Tip: Choose a suite not a bedroom

Cons:
Super nice owner
Beautiful grounds with a lake
Our room was wonderfully decorated and spacious. Comfortable queen bed.
WIFI worked everywhere
Pros:
The breakfast consisted only of croissants, baguettes and juice/coffee/tea. We were surprised by the lack of yogurts, cereal, muesli, fruits etc.... The coffee was very good though!
