“Full of charm and character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

We spent a night here before taking the ferry from Le Havre and wished we could have stayed longer. The building itself is charming and full of character and history. We stayed in the Sunflower room which was absolutely perfect for a stopover - we had a very good night's sleep. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating and only too happy to recommend places to eat and visit. Guests have use of the grounds, so we sat out with a bottle of wine in the evening - perfect! Breakfast was lovely - how pleasant to enjoy coffee from a silver coffee pot (beautiful pourer by the way!) and in a china cup after two weeks camping! Our hosts told us that most of their guests use the port of Dieppe, but Le Havre is only an hour and a half away and we found this a perfect place to spend our last night in France. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for two nights at the start of a visit to Normandy. It is conveniently situated not too far (but not too close!) to the ferry at Dieppe.The Chalet is a beautiful old house furnished in a style that complemented its charms. We chose the Iris room, which is the largest, double aspect and with a huge bathroom complete with a wonderful, deep roll-top bath and lashings of hot water. Our hosts, Bill and Dan were extremely helpful, with suggestions for places to eat and a route onwards.
This is not a luxury chateau - there are no fancy toiletries or hairdryers and no maid service to make your bed, but it is a relaxing spot with real character. For us, the only downside was that we had to drive out at night to find somewhere to eat, but we knew this from their website so were prepared. Unfortunately, at the time of our visit, in early October, some of the excellent local restaurants were closed.

Room Tip: The Iris room on the first floor is the largest.

This property is a large B&B with 5 bedrooms. The property is charming and features old style furniture which compliements this beautiful old french home. We stayed with our baby (14 months) and the owners were REALLY helpful, they were not fully booked so let us put our son in the room next door so we had some piece and quiet and even let us use the kitchen so we could put our son down and have a nice relaxing evening. The property is 5 mins from the sea and some lovely cliff top walks and even has a tennis court if you have the energy. We had the most expensive room and that was 70 euros a night, there are smaller rooms (still a really good size for cheaper).

Room Tip: If you go with children and want them in the room next door them book the Iris room and the Chambre...

My wife and I were looking for a "home base" Bed and Breakfast (Chambre d'hote) in Normandie, We ran across the website of the Chalet du Bel Event <http://www.chaletdubelevent.com/le%20Bel%20Event%20-%20Welcome.html> and reserved a room online. My French is not the best, but we were most surprised to find that it's run chiefly by two brothers, Dan and Bill Westhead, supplemented by their artist mother Justine Westhead, all originally from New Jersey.

It's a fairly large, three story 19th century country home situated in a "park" ... extensive lawns, roses, tennis court, free wi-fi, plenty of parking (we had a rental), and situated only a couple of miles from the ocean (the channel). There are only a few rooms, and breakfast is around the dining room table next to the large living room (which we could use), all decorated with Madame Justine's paintings. It's about a quarter of mile down a tree-canopied lane from the small village of La Chapelle-sur-Dun which has a small grocery/bar/cafe (which marks the entrance to the narrow access road).

We were referred by the hosts to local sights to visit and to a number of good local restaurants all situated within a few miles. One village (3 miles away), Veules-les-Roses, should not be missed.

Expect to be able to climb stairs, to bring your own shower and hair gear, and don't expect daily maid service. It's about 15 minutes north of exit 5 on autoroute A29, and a very short distance off highway D925 between Dieppe and St-Valery-en-Caux.
