“Truly delightful experience!”
Reviewed September 6, 2010

We spent two nights here en route from the South of France to Normandy and were completely charmed both by the splendid accommodations and the welcoming proprietors. We had reserved the Chambre Caramel - Sophie had put in an additional bed for our youngest child, and this arrangement worked beautifully. Our room was immaculate and extremely comfortable - nothing lacking and full of unexpected and charming details! Sophie was a diligent and generous hostess, and attended to our every need;we felt truly welcomed into her home and family for the duration of our stay. Home baked breads and brioches started our day wonderfully. We were thrilled to find that the Maison Malnaye was within easy (5 mins) walking distance of lovely restaurants (particularly a charming pizzeria where the proprietor speaks English), conveniences such as supermarket/boulangerie, and surprisingly a world-class museum on the Vendee area and revolutionary movement. In short, we would recommend this without reservation, and would return here in a heartbeat should our travels take us back to the Vendee region. Thank you Sophie for a truly memorable stay!

We had never experienced such an appalling welcome anywhere in the world before.
Be prepared to take your slippers out of your suitcase before going up the stairs, the house mistress seems to care more for her carpets than for her guests.
The so-called 'family suite' named Chambre Caramel on the website is not a suite but includes two independent bed rooms; the smaller one doesn't even have private bathroom and toilet. Children have to walk down the floor to enter the parents' room and use their bathroom. Therefore, the premises don't comply with the relevant law applicable to French B&Bs. As a consequence, the description on the website as of today 14/07/2010 (pdf capture to date available upon demand) is far from reflecting reality.
We were literally kicked out and the owner refused to refund the amount prepaid upon the pretext that we had left the premises as she demanded.
For the sake of enjoyable holidays, you should simply forget this address.

malnaye, Propriétaire at Maison de la Malnaye, responded to this review, September 3, 2010
Owner of the House of Malnaye, I note, however, that this person has not slept at home and has been dismissed her complaint with the Directorate of Fraud (notification of August 9, 2010). I can therefore say that we are respectful to the law, but also our customers.
And I still do not understand why this person decided to harm us much
