Having visited France annually for the past 26 years, my wife & I have experienced a wide selection of hotels, gites and B&B accommodation. En route to Normandy from the Dordogne in May 2013 we were fortunate to have accessed Manoir La Betoulle on line.
Without a doubt, this Gite/B&B complex run by the ultra professional Penny & John Hitchings is a true gem.
Attention to detail is a priority - the hosts are diligent, caring & thoughtful. The sheer quality of the decor & furnishigs are worthy of any 5 star hotel accommodation. Our B&B accommodation was stunning affording us a luxury bathroom with bathrobes supplied - attention to detail - a private balcony overlooking the shimmering waters of the swimming pool, available for our use.
For the more active, tennis courts can be accessed and those who favour a stroll in the country, the Manoir sits in a vast wooded estate.
For those with a hearty appetite, fear not. Penny provides the best breakfast we have ever encountered. many of the ingredients are locally sourced and seasonal. Homebaked pies and handmade jams are the order of the day. The entire breakfast occasion, shared with fellow guests, is uplifting and energises you for the day ahead.
Penny is a fountain of local knowledge and can offer advice on restaurants and places of interest to visit.
We were afforded the opportunity to view the 2 gites on site and can without fear of contradiction report that they are both lavishly equipped.
We will return to La Betoulle without hesitation and will recommend to griends and relatives.
At the same time, we are tempted to keep this a secret destination for fear that it just might become too popular & deny us the opportunity to induge ourselves whenever we feel like being pampered.
For luxury and quality, we recommend La Betoulle.
