We travelled with another couple to visit Normandy. We are mature couples from Canada. We stayed at L'Orangerie for a week. If you are travelling as a family or with friends, have a car and a GPS, then you need look look no further for the perfect spot to stay.The owner, Claudia, has gone to great pains to convert an old barn into two modern 3 bedroom units. They are lovingly done, each with a lovely outdoor patio looking out over the large pond and lush landscape beyond. Complete with outdoor barbecue, a well equipped kitchen, with first class flatware and dishes, comfortable mattresses, lots of bright space, we could not have been more satisfied with our lodgings, particularly after a week of living in overly small hotel rooms in other parts of Normandy. The champagne on arrival is a classy touch. You are about a 10 to 15 minute leisurely and scenic drive to Bayeux, which has the famous tapestry, the magnificent cathedral, the lovely narrow river, excellent restaurants and grocery stores that sell a wide selection of wonderful French wines. Bayeux is an ideal spot to access the Normandy beaches, the Caen memorial and Mont St Michel. Our week went by far too fast. L'Orangerie felt like home. Were we ever to return to that part of the world, we would stay nowhere else. Thank you, Claudia, for providing us with such wonderful lodgings. I conclude this review with one tip. Bring staples, such as salt and pepper. The fridge will be empty. You will need to supply your own soap and shampoo. Remember to bring an electrical adaptor to keep your electric accessories charged up.

My family consisting of my husband son,his fiancé, sister, brother in law and niece stayed with Cludia at the Gite Pastel for one week. It is truly a delightful airy and typical French accommodation the photographs truly don't do it justice. Our first impressions were yes! This is what we want. Claudia is a perfect hostess. And greeted us warmly after the long trip we were glad to see her. the Gite is very spacious even for the 7 of us. The ground floor bed room was ideal as my sister had recently had knee surgery and the upstairs rooms were very spacious and decorated with the charm and chic you expect en Francais. The outside aspect is breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. The gardens are expansive and a wander around the lake giving you a different aspect of the Castle is a must. I could have have happily stayed a further week. All linens and towels were provided and exchanged when requested. The Gite was clean and fully equipped. My only suggestion may be to provide more comfortable seating for larger groups. However as the table and chairs are in the communal area it didn't seem too much of a concern. The situation of these holiday gives are perfect for touring Normandy and despite the wet weather we had a ball and still much left to see
merci claudia pour fournir une grande maison de vacances , nous reviendrons

“Perfect/Parfait Place to Stay - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We could not have picked a better place to stay. The interior was designed and decorated to perfection and proved to be the perfect accommodation. The outside is a "WOW" from the castle/house to the spectacular backyard view of green pastures, a pond and Rocky (the horse). Force yourself to leave the chateau to take a walk around the quaint village. Bayeux is a stones throw away and an idyllic drive. Claudia (the owner) could not have been more accommodating. Her correspondence before we arrived was appreciated and impressive. Once we arrived we were greeted warmly and taken very good care of. Claudia adds extra touches and extends herself to ensure your comfort. This is the most highly recommended property I've been privileged to stay in. THANK YOU Claudia!

“TRULY CHARMING !SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS !”

I have been to France several times and I have to say that this is the nicest place that I have ever stayed. The owners are sweet and attentive. We found the apartment to be even better than photos showed. It was immaculately clean and had details that made it unique. It was conveniently located for exploring Normandy, and the drives between the rental and our sight seeing could not have been more picturesque. If you are looking for a luxurious French countryside retreat, I do not think you will find a better place than this one.
