Le Brecy is not your average B&B. This is a family chateau of traditional elegance and grace where the quality is exceptional and the hospitality without fault. We only stayed one night and wished we'd booked for longer. We thoroughly recommend this delightful retreat.
Patricia Lanquest, the elegant chatelaine of Le Brecy, welcomed us to her charming chateau in the quiet village of St Martin de Boscherville. We were given her grand-mere's apartment complete with antique furniture and vitrines full of beautiful ceramics. The bedroom was very comfortable with pretty nightstands, ornamentation, and handsome chairs. We had our own little sitting room with a gorgeous writing desk, full of information about the area, and a small kitchen behind a screen providing for any extra needs. We had booked dinner as Le Brecy is a 'chambre d'hote' and Patricia cooked us a delicious repast with her own 'tarte normande' to finish, accompanied by an excellent Cotes de Bourg wine. Breakfast included Patricia's own preserves and all were served in a wonderful dining room with lovely tableware. Furnishings and fabrics were of the highest quality from the beautiful curtains to the bed headboards.
Off the beaten track, Le Brecy is situated on the edge of the village with its own home farm attached. St Martin de Boscherville was an unexpected pleasure not least for its superb Romanesque abbey and beautifully restored potager garden of herb beds and fruit trees, a project for which the Lanquests have been personally responsible and continue to be involved with. The village is a smart residential area for people working in Rouen (only 16 km away), and set in a very attractive part of the Normandy countryside where the River Seine loops in deep meanders towards the sea and you can take little car ferries (free of charge) across the river which adds to the charm. There are good restaurants nearby and the village has a good butcher and boulangeris, and a good pharmacy. The bookshop at the abbey has an excellent selection of historical and children's books in English as well as French.
Le Brecy was a real find and a rare glimpse of traditional French hospitality at its best.
