“Idyllic Country Retreat.”
Reviewed November 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I chose this lodging for its charming ambiance and countryside location.
Problem was that it took us 2 hours to find the place :(
The property was listed as "2 Bedrooms 2 Baths". There was only one bedroom and a living area. The baths were actually 2 half baths, toilet and shower in separate rooms. We managed, but had to pay extra for a second bedroom.
Our hostess, however, was super accommodating and friendly. You couldn't ask for a nicer host. The breakfasts were amble and delicious. She provided us with the means to make tea in our room and to have a supper on the terrace. We love you, Agnes. :)
We enjoyed the quiet setting in the country in spite of the narrow lanes that led to it.

“A beautiful location and a very pleasant stay”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

La Pastorale was spacious and comfortable. We slept well and the facilities were very clean and tastefully furnished and decorated. The toilet and shower room were completely private.
Breakfasts provided by Agnes were excellent, and included much local produce, as well as fruits from her lovely garden. Agnes was a delightful host who proved very helpful in advising us of all the interesting places to visit in this part of Normandy. She also cooked excellent evening meals when requested .
La Pastorale is a 15 minute drive from Pont L'Eveque, a small Norman town much nicer than the guide books suggested, and towns such as Lisieux, Deauville, and Caen are all within easy reach. Much of the countryside is very green and wooded with several typical Norman villages close by.
As a chambre d'hote La Pastorale is difficult to beat.

“Our favourite B&B ever!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Located on a little track on the edge of a hamlet called Saint Hymer, it was a perfect peaceful place to stay. The room upstairs is comprised of a beautifully decorated bedroom and an adjoining space to sit which was perfect as a second bedroom for our baby (cot provided). The owner was an incredible host, always going the extra mile to ensure that we had everything that we needed, she made us dinner every night (to restaurant standard every time) which was lovely as it felt like we were eating out, even though the baby was asleep upstairs! She even made meals for our 16 month old!
We would recommend this place to anyone.

“Just lovely”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I strongly recommend La Pastorale as an excellent base from which to explore this beautiful and very historic area of France. The accommodation is spacious, tastefully presented and very clean. The owner is a delightful lady who can't do enough to ensure you have a pleasant stay.

“Owner and Property -- true gems”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

There is no way to exaggerate the pleasure of a stay with Agnes. She is an extraordinary lady -- a real "persons person." She is a delight, and a very talented one at that (enjoy her paintings on the wall at "La Pastorale"). She truly wants her guests to feel at home and enjoy being in Normandy, and it shines through all the time.

"La Pastorale" itself is a delight. Lots of room, in an idyllic country setting. You have to experience it -- and Agnes' little touches themselves -- to appreciate how remarkable they are.
